Smudgy antics Challenge Touch me and Junk Funk Challenge and Dragons Dream TIO challenge

this weeks challenge at Smudgy Antics is Touch me (all about textures). Check out the rules and the prize here.

I made a Fat Book page, it's my first one and I loved making it. I used a piece of a cardboard box added a net (this one had oranges in it) put gesso on it and added some paint in different colours.
Then I added a piece of burlap and som wire, stapels and rope, put a little crackle paint here and there and added a digi Shell stamp from Smeared Ink et voila:

The next piece is for the junk Funk Challenge at Smeared Ink Forum, if you enter you will get a free digi just for entering and there are also prizes to be won, check it out here.

I made a card and for this callenge you need to use bottle caps, I used them as the center of the flowers (I like the bats so I did not alter the bottle caps)The digi stamp is from Dilly Beans , they have the most wonderfull digi stamps.

here is my card

The 3rd piece is a tag for the Dragons Dream tag it on challenge "the Thorn Birds".

I watched the tv series when I was a kid and loved it, also read the book. Here is my tag:

On the tag you can see Megan and Father Ralph, the Rose he kept in his bible and some birds.

Hope you like and hope you will join this weeks challenge at Smudgy Antics or one of the other challenges at the Smeared Ink forum, see you there

I entered the tag also at Simon says Stamp and show challenge
