Dreamy days of Summer

Hello everyone,

and a warm welcome to my DT post. I have made a tag this time.

And here's what I did to the Chipboard:

This is the chipboard in it's natural state.

I decided just to colour it today. I used Faber Castell Pitt Artists Big Brush Pens. 

This is what it looked like after colouring. I only used two shades of brown for the tops and two shades of green for the leaves. 

Next I clear embossed it. 

The finished article....

A close up of the tag which I treated with Acrylic paint (PaperArtsy - Sage) on the bottom and the right side.  I also added a little bit of stamping. 

I added some dictionary text pieces: 'Dream' on the top and 'Summer' at the bottom. 

I also wrapped some embroidery twine around the tag and added a sentiment from a PaperArtsy Stamp set. 

I used a chipboard from this set :

You'll find it HERE

Thank you so much for stopping by today ! 


  1. Love the weathered driftwood feel of this - like a beach with wonderful dunes in bright sunlight... it's perfect!
