Tag Tuesday

Our theme this week at Tag Tuesday is *green*. I have used mostly re-cycled materials - green! and a lot of green stuff. The cardboard has been distressed, gessoed and then painted green, before being inked with gold and green. The image is from Graphics 45, the lace has been recycled, and the beads have been made from painted paper, rolled round a knitting needle. I made the beads to hang on presents last Christmas, put them in a tin, and forgot where they were....Last week I found them again, so here they are on my tag.



This is the tag made for 'The Cheerful Stamp Pad' *In the Garden* Challenge. You still have a whole week to enter! I made a tag from distressed and embossed cardboard. (What else?!) The image is from Graphics 45, mounted on a scrap of card, stamped with various motives in forest moss. I added 2 rub on roses and a feather.



That's all for today! Take care, have a lovely day, and thanks for visiting!

  3. Beautiful tags...both of them.
    The "Christmas" beads made me smile...I so often put things in a "safe" place...never to find them again!
    Hugs xx

  4. Both the tags are gorgeous, sounds like something I would do, putting the beads somewhere safe and then forgetting them.
