Simon Says "Stamp and show a Tag*

Heeeeelp! Just realised it is not Saturday evening but SUNDAY, and that time is running out for the *Simon Says* Challenge which is due not tomorrow, as I thought, but tonight, so I am having to do a night shift to get it posted. Where did the weekend disappear?
Anyway, here is my tag. I used torchon watercolour paper to cut the tag, which I distressed with antique linen and brushed corduroi. The script has been stamped with the same colour. Then the scrolls and flowers in the next layer were stamped with Adirondack *Espresso*. Over that I added the third layer - a vintage image, an acrylic floral flourish, some TH die cuts, paper roses and a heart which I made in a mold using candle left overs. I coloured it with inka gold and Stazon *timber brown*. I tried to create the effect of depth although I kept to the colours brown and cream. It was fun to make, as always!


Thanks for looking, and have a great day!!

  2. Wow, worth putting in a night-shift for, Valerie! Good job you love what you do, eh? I think you achieved the sense of depth as well, the layers all work together. I love that you explain how you made your projects....somehow that makes me appreciate them more when I can see what work went into them. CoB
