TIO #141–Yellow, Lightbulbs, Wire

I must have had ESP or something – This recipe would have worked pretty well for last fortnight’s tag, lol

So, having used a yellow lightbulb last time round, what the heck was I going to do for this challenge over Dragons Dream Tag It On ?  I simply couldn’t get the last tag out of my head.

For goodness sake Esther!  Let it go and move on!


I tried – but I I am not particularly happy with it. My heart just wasn’t in it this time.

I stamped some acetate with gesso and my crackle stamp, used yellow alcohol ink to colour it and cut the Xmas light shape from Silhouette.  I wrapped wire around the base of the bulb and secured it all to a black tag that had been stamped with clear ink and rubbed over with chalks.  It looked a bit unfinished so I added some yellow wood-grain washi tape at the bottom.  I still think it looks unfinished but I just couldn’t drum up a reasonable sentiment so I gave up.

Roll on the next challenge!  I am sure I will be a bit more enthusiastic by then, lol

Cheers, Esther
