Tanda Teaser 201 - Myth and Mystery

Bit of an update, all the dashing about getting sorted was in vain, the builder seems to have gone out of business!   Thankfully I had not paid him anything in advance, just have to go through the whole process again of getting quotes and so on.   for now though I'm back!

Guess what, I'm hosting the Tanda Teaser this month!!!   My good friend Sue has been keeping the challenge going by herself for some time now.   As many of you know I've been a supporter of the challenge for several years now, doing as much as I could to encourage and support Sue.   I'm also a member of the Tanda design team so it seemed right that we share responsibility for the Tanda Teaser.    Each Tease lasts for 4 weeks and is just for fun.  Sue and I will be taking turn and turn about.

For this one I used some of my favourite Tanda stamp sets, Dragons and Fantasy.   The background is of course no wrinkle distress which came out with a wonderful streaked 'sky' the perfect playground for flying Dragons.   The flames in black glitter paste are a Imagination Crafts mask, the dragon's horde is made of glitter and Stampedous crushed glass glitter. The main dragon stamped and fussy cut is coloured with Sakura glitter gel pens.   All inspired by a Myth and Mystery theme.

The support is 8.5" x 6" glossy card attached to an A4 card and edged with TH tissue tape.   My only regret is that you cannot see how this sparkles and shines irl.   If you have never joined  Tanda Teaser  it's very easy use what ever medium you like in any format, just be inspired by the theme and join us with it.

I just happened to notice that The Corrosive Challenge have 2 weeks of Myth and Magic so am sharing my panel with them.   Deep Ocean Challenge are calling for things with wings hopefully dragons qualify.   Crafty cardmakers are also looking for things with wings and for this challenge it does not have to be a card it can be anything with wings!   Wings are always popular and Tammy's Scrapin Corner also have a Winged theme.   Finally, for this list, there is Make it Monday an always anything goes linky party that I've not joined for a while but now as I'm up to date and the builder will not be here........... always a silver lining.

  4. Amazing image, love your card and the colours . Thank you for sharing with us at CCM this time.

  5. Clever girl making the most of the situation and a great piece to boot. Things turned the opposite way for me, the friend who was going to do my drive in the winter has a few days and decides he will come do it now and our decorator also did the same thing so the living room gets done tomorrow and friday, all go here.
