Promise Me (Penny Black) Card, Off The Edge Film Strip, Script Background

I hadn't intended to make this tag into a card initially...  it was one of those 'where bits from previous projects' were still lying around and grabbed my attention.
It's funny how most of my better designs morph from those 'left overs'.

So for those of you who haven't read my previous post, this project started off as my DT inspiration tag for Tag You're It...
and just by adding one extra die and a stencil it's become this instead.

Green and red...  I just love these two colours together.
But red is such a beast to get a decent photo of.

Supplies Used:

Penny Black 'Promise Me'

Penny Black 'Promise Me' II
Poppystamps 'Bijou Filmstrip'

Memento/Tsukineko Marker Pens:
New Sprout
Bamboo Leaves
Rhubarb Stalk
Love Letter
Tuxedo Black

Distress Ink:
Walnut Stain

Embossing Powder:
WOW - Clear

Embossing Folder:
Spellbinders 'Fabric Weave'

The Crafter's Workshop 'Art Is'

Crafter's Companion - Spray and Shine 'High Gloss' Varnish
Tonic/Holtz Paper Distressing Tool

What I didn't mention in my last post is that I'm currently suffering from what I believe to be RSI...  in both hands/wrists.
So I'm trying to limit my iPad and iMac usage as much as is possible, which means yet another backlog of comments for me to work through  (Am I the only one who always falls behind)?
But I will work through them as it's my way of saying 'thank you' to those of you who are always kind enough to stop by.  x

Don't forget to come and join us at Tag You're It!

Enjoy your weekend...

  1. Sorry to hear about your RSI. Great job what you've done with the tag. All the elements sit perfectly together x

  2. GORGEOUS card using that fab tag Donna. Sorry to hear about your RSI . . . no need to reply to this comment (I notice you normally reply to each one). Also, please don't feel obliged to comment on my blog. Rest up and get better.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

    1. I don't feel obliged... I like to stop by.
      Thank you, Sarn. Enjoy your weekend. X

  3. This is just as gorgeous as a card! as it was a tag Donna, those tulips are beautiful.
    You take care, you have enough to contend with, with RSI too.
    Hugs Pam xx

  4. This is a brilliant use of the tag. I like how it has morphed into this card. Sorry to hear your in pain with your wrists. I'm so far behind with visiting I'm surprised I haven't met myself coming back the other way! Like you I will get round to everyone. Hugs Mrs A.

    1. Bless you, Mrs A...
      Between FB, Instagram and people's blogs I'm always chasing my tail!
      Hope things are improving for you...

  6. Donna what a beautiful tag, you always amaze me with your use of different die cuts!

    1. Thank you so much, Tracey.
