Tag your'e it week 39 NEW STASH!!!

This weeks challenge on TYI is to use any new stash!!!!
Well I couldn't get anything newer than what was waiting on the mat this morning!!
some hangler& stangler images.
(if anyone knows the name of this character/image please let me know..)
So I got to work with all my newest crafty stuff........

I coloured him using my water colour pencils and instead of colouring him in i wet my pencils and scribbled them on my acrylic block then used my water brush to apply them to my image ,
I found this a more controlled way of using them as i can't always get even pressure with the pencils which often means i have shading where there wasn't meant to be!
I drew round my double sided tape roll for the base (must get some nesties) and embossed just over half with a cuttlebug folder added DCWV paper to the remainder and put ribbon over the join (from hobbycraft).
I put some brown gold dusted paper through my big shot (another crimbo pressie) with a sizzix scribbles#7 die and added a flower pot sticker form Forever Friends...phew what a waffle!!!!!

Hope you like my tag
and thanks for looking!

Hiya Emma
Great to see you back!
Oooh I got some Hanglars too from my friend Lim a while back - they are so hard to get hold of!
Your Tag is great and the colours just blend perfectly - I like WC pencils too but find they can be a bit gritty sometimes - IYKWIM!!
Love that you did a Circle Tag this week!
Thanks for playing!
