WOYWW Woman!

I've not photographed my desk this morning as it looks just like it did last week, except the discount ticket for Panduro has gone - I bought a couple of bits from them to try out, it would have been rude not to.
Instead today I have what's sitting in my WOYWW display stand, a tag that I finished this morning.
This lovely lady is Valentina and she is one of the images I chose for my prize from Sketching Stamper, I've coloured her with water colours. I've made the tag base with Distress Stain - great new product, well worth having if you like to make Distress Ink backgrounds, now I need more colours. I've added some of Tim's tape down one side and hand stitched it to the tag with metallic thread. There's also metal brads and an eyelet all of which have been bashed with a small hammer to add extra detail - quite fun, especially as I am in a grumpy mood today!
Challenges - lots and some of which I'm not sure if they permit digi images, none said no digi's, but let me know if I have entered any that I shouldn't have:

Simon Says - Anything goes
Fab 'n' Funky #63 - Make it girly
Try It On Tuesday - Tag for International Women's Day
Studio L3 #35 - Design details
Kaboodles Doodles #57 - Go green
Stamp Something - Digi week

Phew, I don't know how people manage to enter 20 plus challenges with one card and get them all linked up, I'd be here all day!

Now flip over to Julia's blog for lots more WOYWW goodness.

WOW!!! What a fabulous tag, Kate! Not only did you absolutely ROCK the Design Details challenge, you also used a completely spectacular image and colored it beautifully.

Your stitching looks great-- the silver thread is perfect for this design, and the Distress Stain made a gorgeous background.

Thanks so much for joining our final Compendium of Curiosities Challenge! I hope you'll be back for the next chapter!
