Tando Creative is three years old and we're celebrating with a Blog Hop! The fabulous Tando Design Team members have created stunning projects using some of their favorite patterns from the past three years. If you leave a comment on every blog in the hop you will be entered into the prize draw!  If you're visiting my blog today for another reason, and you would like a chance to win some fabulous Tando Creative chipboard, please join the hop and start back at the Tando Creative Blog. If you have arrived here from Gez's Blog, you are on the right track.


One of my favorite sets of Tando chipboard is the lantern set, released last fall.  I had a lot of fun aging my chipboard and the chain with a copper surfacer and patina green and black tinting solutions.  I colored some sticky-back canvas with mist, which I then cut into squares and rectangles, to create the background for my tag.


This glass piece is an amp tube from my husband's guitar amp.  I think it looks like a funky light bulb and it fit perfectly in the center of this chipboard piece.  In keeping with the music theme, I used some of my favorite song lyrics written by Kurt Cobain; "The sun is gone, but I have a light."

Here is a list of the fabulous blogs taking part in this hop:
