Dagmar has tagged it today!

We love the fact that blogland opens up the world to us, we have entries from all around the globe but especially throughout Europe and the USA. Our post today gives us pleasure in introducing you to another previous winner of our DTMSM blog badge, given to entrants who we feel have submitted the most creative and original project. Dagmar was our winner in April and she has returned today from Germany for this guest spotlight...

Hello, my name is Dagmar, I am married and live with my man and our three dogs in our large house with lots of space for creative ideas. I am since about 3 years infected with the stamp virus and am very excited this month as a guest designer to be there to be able to inspire you. I wish you lots of fun and creative ideas.

First I covered my tag with aluminium foil tape, I then embossed it with one of Tim Holtz’s embossing folders. Next I covered my tag in the German firm Rico Design patina effect paints, I used the colours Rust and Verdigris. After this had dried, I swiped some black acrylic paint over it.
The tool stamps are from the Dutch stamp company Stempelwinkel. Both the letters and the fragments are from Tim Holtz. The little cogs and washers were cut with one of my Silhouette cartridges.

Such a beautiful tag Dagmar, rich in interest and awash with decorative elements - thank you! (Thank you also goes to Astrid for assisting with some translation.) We hope you'll visit Dagmar and show her your support.

We have one more post to go... Have we managed to convince you to take the plunge yet? We do hope so!

Join us on Saturday for our last salute to June and this fabulous challenge.

Thanks for dropping by today - have fun!
