                     REMEMBER MY GIVEAWAY  of (20/01)
                                                                                    AND  I LOVE IT :)

Here is some of my first attempts,--the tag is punsched out,and after embossed.
I have used images from a beautifull sheet I bought from :
Gail has a wonderfull mixture of digi sheets-take a look on her blog-and shop.

Also I added old lace and a bit of pearls.

The next set is made on little bought pink tags!
After embossing them, I added  1 meter beautifull ribbons on each, and a lovely paper rose

Again I used Gails, wonderfull images.

The last one I made on a big uncolored tag-
also embossed a piece of parchment paper, and added the image on top.

I carefully went over the embossed areas with a pink stamp color
I love it !

And last ,here is the bottle made in  Nancy`s " Smitten" class
If you haven`t looked yet, you should go over there. Nancy makes the most beautifull art pieces of all kind you could wish for, and the class, gives us possibilities of working with both fabric-paper-glass and much more.

As you see I have been in a pink mood, the last dayes!
I also embossed the tag hanging in a wonderfull seam binding bow-used glitter around the image, and on top on the "hat" -it is very romantic.

Thank you to everyone that have visited my giveaway--and
If you haven`t -there is still time, till the end of the month-

I hope you are all well, and healphy- and wishes you a beautifull day-and week.

Love and hugs, Dorthe

Dorthe, I was wondering if you know Ann Marie Elmbak? When I was in Denmark she had an embroidery shop in Copenhagen on the stroget She taught me how to do stumpwork embroidery and was a lovely person. I know this is a longshot, but DK is small :-)
