I'm Late, I'm Late.......


I am back, and as we adjust to having extended family living with us, it's somewhat shambolic around here :-), subsequently I am late for this posting, and another one which hopefully I will get done tomorrow.

Thankfully I had made this tag for the Creative Craft Cottage Challenge # 29 in advance.  The challenge is an Anything Goes Challenge with a suggested colour palette.  I took two colours from the palette and made a tag.

The white base was covered with tissue paper I had swiped with Bundled Sage D.I. after crumpling it - I Stamped the Eiffel Tower on the tissue, then also rubbed some Gold and Bronze Inka Gold Rub.

A strip of washi tape was added to one side of the tag before I layered it onto the pink backing. A pink die cut sprayed with silver shimmer paint, two tags stamped with Crushed Velvet, some silver braid and rhinestones, some ribbon and it was finished.

I love how this turned out.

  9. Maxine, this tag is gorgeous!! Love how you combined all the elements. The sentiment and the beauty of the tag will definately lift some blessed person's spirits.

  10. Maxine, your tag is beautiful!! Love the background, especially the Eiffel Tower!

  11. Maxine, I loved how it turned out too! Looks very delicate with that shimmery flourish over the top of that Eiffel tower. Good luck with having family reside with you. We've done that while our house was built, and it can be taxing for both parts of the equation. Good for you that you're able to pitch in & help out. Glad you saw that I was inspired by your lovely card. I want to try the technique again, as yours was much more delicate and lovely than what I ended up with. But I was just experimenting to see what would happen. The tissue was blue, so next time, I need to try with a white, more sheer tissue. Had fun though. TFS & Have a good week. Hugs
