A Grey Day

Hello.  Welcome.  Isn't it strange where inspiration comes from?  I have spent some hours in my craft room today with only UFO's to show for it.  So I decided to see what was new in blogland.  The lovely Jane has published The Craft Barns weekly challenge - Hats.  This was a two fold surprise because last week they started their Alpha/Dictionary challenge and it hadn't dawned on my tiny brain cell that the weekly challenges would be running as well.  Hurrah.  

Hats.  Hmmmm.  My first thought was I don't have many hats.  But looking through the stash I was amazed to find witch hats, snowman hats, top hats, cowboy hats, bowlers, caps and other assorted headwear.  What fun. 

It's been a bit of a day so I decided to keep it black and white.  I cut my tag using Sizzix Tag#2 die, stamped and embossed Unity's There Was A Boy.  Love this stamp.  He's so quirky.  I masked and applied versamark through a chevron mask and embossed with black powder.  I stamped various stamps from Stamplorations Mixed Media Elements and added a brad.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Technicolour transmissions will resume shortly.  Still a couple of days to enter my giveaway.  Hugz
