So Salsa #1

Edit, before anyone gets the chance to see this - what a fool - I just realised that there was actually a theme for this challenge and I went nowhere near it!! LOL!!!! The theme is A is for Apple - I didn't actually read that bit till I posted on here!! ROFL!! Never mind, pretend this is an Apple Tree and the apples haven't yet formed!!! :o) Phew......!

So Salsa (Stamp or Scrap a Label Sunday Afternoon) - what a brilliant title for a challenge blog - so wish I'd thought of it first!!! ;o) Well, I don't need to be asked twice, but I do need to be asked on a Saturday if I'm to do it by Sunday, LOL!! But Christa very kindly left a link to her brand new challenge site on Tag, You're It! and I couldn't resist playing along!

So here is my label. It's a manilla parcel label which I spritzed with Adirondak colour washes then a top layer of Medici Aqua Regia (I checked the bottles! LOL!!) Topaz (same as glimmer mists, just a different make). This is a bit whimsical for me, not the sort of thing I normally do but Oh what fun I had making it! During the week I received the most fabulous scrapbooking kit by Pink Paislee and I used parts of this as my inspiration. The flowers were from my most recent acquisition, the Fancy Pants Bella Blush set.

Thanks for popping in!
