Yummy colours

The Tag It On challenge #3 is called Rhubarb Crumble and Custard. What an imaginative title!!!!

I'm particularly fond of this pudding, and grow rhubarb in my garden. Strangely enough, it's the title my brother gives to his emails to me, as it's one of his favourites too!

Back to the plot (narrative, not garden :-)) the task is to use pink, yellow, and some texture. My texture comes from the swiss dots cuttlebug folder, which I rolled over with a rolling pin as I only own some folders and not the machine (yet!). I sanded over the texture and rubbed over with Scattered Straw.

Another wonderful tag that fits the bill perfectly. I can't say I would have thought of those colours but they do look 'yummy' as you say.

What a gorgeous tag Ros and that stamp looks like another must have as far as I'm concerned!
Thanks for taking on my challenge.

You've made my mouth water! The colours make me think of those rhubarb and custard sweets I used to buy when I was a kid!

Ros, how perfectly gorgeous! I hadn't thought of using a rolling pin for the folders. I also don't own the machine, but I do own a pasta machine, which I use for cuttlebug folders (and sometimes for polymer clay). Great colors.
