A Cheeky Look at Temptation...

This fortnight’s recipe at DragonsdreamTag It On has been set by the very talented Sue and is “I can resist anything but temptation" – to include a resist technique, the colour red and a temptation (plus the obligatory use of at least one stamp and for it to be on a tag). 
I must confess that I did get an attack of the giggles when I got my idea for this tag. I am a Cub Leader and for the last two weeks we've been discussing our 'collections' and I took in my 'collection' of Art Parts as I seem to collect them rather than use them! So my 'temptation' was easy! I am far too easily tempted by a new pack of Art Parts - the problem is I seem to want to own them rather than use them! 
So I stamped a Wendy Vecchi Plaid stamp with clear embossing ink and embossed the tag. 
Then I inked the whole tag in Bar Door Distress Stain. The Art Part was again inked with Barn Door and I used some Art Part packaging behind it. I then stamped a few of my favourite stamps and sayings to complete the tag. I do hope that you'll join in and share your temptation with us!
