Tuesday Taggers challenge

Hi again friends, you probably can tell that I am feeling much better (thank-you all so much for your kind word and get well wishes). I was worrying that I would not be able to do the Tuesday Taggers week 4 challenge, , as it was quite a big one, they want, a Card, a Tag and Gift Wrap. But seeing as I won WK3, I had to have a go...... I am sorry about the image, but I have very few rubber stamps at the minute, and as it is Father's Day next Sunday and my step-dad is an avid Glasgow Celtic supporter, I decided to go with Onion's again. I used the embossing ink and chalks, to make the paper, accenting it with ribbon and gem, can anyone guess what he is getting as a present??????????LOL, I used my slice machine to cut a tag and did the same technique, I don't have spray's or fancy inks.....The card was done the same, but with a bit of glitter card behind image and I put a peel off (Happy Father's Day) used the chalks, then peeled it off to leave the negative.......I have never done anything like this before, but watched the Queen of Craft, Dawn Bibby, demonstrate it in the past. I hope you like them....Hugs Avril.

Congratulations on winning last week Avril, your entry for this weeks challenge is just great. I don't have fancy inks or sprays either so ended up using coffee(with water of course!)to stain my backing paper.
