I tagged it!!

A warm welcome to you all - it is so gratifying when my counter tells me you have visited. I do hope you enjoy your visits.

Some months ago I won some stamps on a new release blog hop by Our Daily Bread Designs, and this weekend I inked them up - and this is the result.



The motivation behind inking them up was that The Our Daily Bread Blog Team have a challenge  in which a tag must be used!


I stamped the tag and sentiment in Violet ink and clear embossed them. The flowers were stamped again with black ink on white card and painted with twinkling H2Os, fussy cut, and then adhered over the original - you can just see the sparkle in this shot.

The doily is one from a pack I bought years ago when I first started stamping. Unfortunately they are plate size, not cocktail size, so I had to trim it to fit somewhat more than I would prefer.

The lace is some I have on hand, but after adding that, I still felt the whole was somewhat dull, so out came the rhinestones and volia, I was very happy with the end result.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting - May your day be blessed
