Peeloffs grrrrrrrrrrr!

Good morning one and all. Well what a dull and dismal day it is here in the West Midlands. A perfect day for staying indoors and doing what we all love best a bit of crafting. But that's not what I'm doing today. We are off to Cosford Air Museum to check out some WAVs (Wheelchair AccessibleVehicles). We have a Kangoo at the moment which we love but thought we would check out whats new. 

So before we set off I'd better let you know what's happening over at the Try it on Tuesday challenge blog. Well this week we are making tags using those blessed peeloffs.  To be honest I got myself a bit confused this week (what's new? I hear you cry). Got so carried away trying to get inspiration with the peeloffs that I created a card not a tag so had to rush around to get the tag made.  Anyway the card had a purpose and was sent to my SIL for her 70th birthday.
Here's the tag

I guess you can see what I've done for the background. Put some flower peeloffs on the card and coloured over the top with DI then removed the peeloffs. For the dragonflies I coated some card with flitter glue, added some gilding flakes and then placed on the dragonfly peeloffs and cut them out.

Here's the card.

I created the background in the same way using dragonfly peeloffs. But the larger dragonflies are the see through shimmer type so I was able to add the gilding flakes directly to the back of them. I created the gilded border using the red DS tape and adding the gilding flakes. Simple but very effective in real life. Actually the backing paper is purple not blue and looks stunning with the gilding.
Well better get off. It's taken me an age to get these photos uploaded so now I'm running behind.
Don't forget to take a look at what the DT members have created over on the challenge blog and who knows you might want to see just how creative you can be with your redundant peeloffs.
Thank you for stopping by
