Tuesday Tags

Hi everybody, time is flying, as always, and I was out nearly all day yesterday, so didn't get much done.
All I managed was 2 little tags, and one of them is too late, but I wanted to do it anyway, so better late that never!
The *late* tag is for Rebecca's *Blog Garden Challenge* Faces Challenge. Both tags have been made as double tags - a tag stamped onto a piece of ceramic card, which is extremely smooth and allows easy blending and stamping, and the bottom piece, made from corrugated cardboard and distressed to match. The top tag has been stamped with archival black, clear embossed, and then painted with water colours, before adding some matching flowers and ribbon.


The second tag - this time not late! - is for the *Dragon's Dream it On*, and this week the dragon has been dreaming of nature's bounty, a lovely theme, so I dreamed with her! I made another double tag, as before, but this time decorated with some yellow sacking, autumn leaves, dried flowers and vintage fruit pictures. I also squeezed in the text of *Come ye thankful people, come*, because we do have a lot to be thankful for. I finished it off with a straw bow, which I discovered tied round one of my flower pots.


Okay, that was it for today! I hope to get a bit more done for tomorrow. Have a nice day you all, and take care!

  1. The look of these double tags is lovely .. gives a depth doesn't it. I have to say the second one is my favorite. I tried to stick my hand through the screen to snatch it, but no luck! Hope you have a lovely day, Valerie. Hope (just maybe) the sun is shining in your part of the world. hugs, Donna
