Challenge 8 at Artful Times

It was lovely to have a little haven of sunshine on the challenge blog the last fortnight with so many bright and cheerful entries and some new followers making us now at 102 :)
I'd also like to welcome my new followers  it's an honor to have you

We have handed the reins over to Sam for the next fortnight with her theme of Modes of Transport  at Artful Times. Of course there are lots of options, air, land and sea though the team have their feet firmly on the ground
For my tag I closed my eyes and just picked 2 colours of distress inks and got 2 colours I would never have put together Tumbled glass and Crushed Olive,stamped with the olive for the ground and tumbled glass in the sky and edged with brushed corduroy
Kids on bikes ... Elusive Images
Cogs ... Kanban

Love how you have used that large wheel with the centre of the spoke for the eyelet. Clever! Great stamp and well stamped too - love the cogs at the base - and the colours you have chosen, albeit randomly.
Hugs, Neet xx

Love your stamped images Von. The cogs really work under the bikes don't they? I love the colours and too am surprised how well they work together - who would have thought?!!

What a fab tag Von, I love the combination of the bikes and the cogs, and you couldn't have 'chosen' better colours x

Marina said...

Your random colour selection has worked! Great tag.

Fabulous tag Von. I love how you chose your colours - I'll have to try it as it might make me use the colours that I never bother with.

Wow, what a great combination your 'blind' ink-choosing got you. I'd never have gone for them together either, but it's delicious with that stamp. Lovely tag!
