A splash of Red

So how was Friday the 13th for you?   I'm not especially superstitious but the little hiccup with my account made me think!   But then there was also a call about a working interview on Monday and it cannot get much better than that!

Time to tell you the winner of my blog candy! The lucky person is:-
No 16 - Chrissie!!!

Wow Chrissie, congratulations.   Please send me an email with your address and I'll get it in the post to you. 

While it is not my favourite colour red is one I do like, for a bright splash especially as a contrast to White.  Getting a lot of inspiration from Flying Unicorn, this is my second entry to the January Tag Challenge, which is predominantly white .

Checking my reading list quickly became aware that there is a new challenge at The Stamp Man and their prompt this time is to use Red.   That set my colour scheme.

The base of the tag is a Sizzix paisley shape, on top a Marianne Lantern die cut with red cellophane behind it and a Marianne Butterfly die cut flitting off to the side.  All die cuts made with white watercolour paper.   White seam binding  hangs from the bottom of the lantern with red paper flowers attached by white glittered brads.   The tag is suspended on red sewing thread through a small red eyelet.

Also entering this into Flutter by Wednesday - Always require a butterfly, fairy or angel, this time with bright colour.    Deep Ocean Challenge, lots of White. Paper Creations Ink, Die-cuts and or Punches.  Simon says Stamp and Shop, Red Letter Day.
