Play Time!

Hello everyone.
Does this look a bit odd to you? Bare with me and all will be revealed.
Firstly I got a really really big manila tag and I blended Antique Linen; Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks onto it.
Then I spritzed it with water ... stamped it with water ... then stamped it with a Coffee coloured ink. The stamp I used was the Stampendous Agapanthus.

I know ... I know ... it still looks odd ... but stay with me. I used a one inch square punch to punch random one inch squares from my tag. I say random ... I made sure some had a stamped image and some did n't. Then I mounted all nine on a 6"X6" card blank.

Hopefully you don't think it looks odd now. This took about 10 minutes in total and it makes a great note card ... alternatively ... add a greeting or a 3d butterfly and you have a lovely greetings card too.
Have a great weekend everyone ... I am off to see Sir Tim of Holtz so I just know mine is gonna be great :0)
