techno lesson.......

I'm feeling a smidge pleased with myself, the lovely Chrissie at Sketch and Stash has had a watermark made for us for our cards, my son has had to give me step by step instructions on how to put the watermark on my projects using gimp......so this is my first post using the watermark. I've written down step by step instructions to follow but of course things never work out as planned but I'm sure I'll get there in the end.
Todays tag is for the lovely Lindas challenge Compendium of Curiosities from Mr.Ts book.......coloured fragments, I have to confess I didn't have the pens for the technique so I had to use a brush, hope teacher lets me off and doesn't make me do lines......I must use a pen, I must use a pen......lol. The stamp images are from Crafty Individuals, the background of the tag was distressed with tea dye and sage and then spritzed with gold perfect pearls spray.










Challenges

Compendium of Curiosities......coloured fragments.
Papercutz......anything goes.
Sunday Stampers......buttons
Paper Sundaes.....distressing.

Hope you have a great day
Off to finish my DT cards for the new release of stamps featuring Toby Tumble tomorrow, better get y skates on ......
Hugs

Your CCC tag is gorgeous. I really like the colour blending and the layering of the fragment on top of the full image of the flower.

How did you create the water mark with your own design and name?

Holy moly, this is gorgeous, Daniele! You did a magnificent job improvising with a brush-- it turned out beautifully! I love the stamp you chose, and the pretty background compliments it perfectly. The little buttons are such a great touch!
