Tag Tuesday.. Faces

Wow, what a week I can't believe it already Thursday.
I have had a full week of visiting with friends and
family, so I haven't had a lot of time to create until
this morning! 

Over at Tag Tuesday, Louise has challenged us to
put a face on a tag.. How fun!  I knew exactly what I
was going to do..  But once I started playing around I went a 
whole different direction. I think it's so fun when that
happens..  I was going to stamp a flower and put a face in
the middle..  Well as you can see that didn't happen...


I had fun playing with the back ground of my tag..
I embossed with clear embossing powder and then
used different colored distress ink to get this
effect!  I just love the way it turned out!



This face stamp is from my girlfriend Becca..
So nice of her to share with me, I only have a couple
of face stamps and I have used them so many times..

I finally got around to oordering some seam
binding...  I just love the look of it on everyone's
cards lately..  and I topped it off with a cool little
button I had gotten on a little shopping trip with
Kirsty!


I didn't do a lot of embellishing on my
tag this week because I wanted to see my
background..

Thanks for stopping by and listening to me go on and
on about my Tag..  I hope your have a fun week also.
I am going to get out of my Jammie's now and go meet
my sister and a girlfriend for Lunch..  Hopefully I
will get around to looking at all the other Wonderful
Tags this afternoon... 

Hugs, Linda

Linda, wow, oh wow! This is one really gorgeous piece of art! I love the background and I'm so glad you let lots of it show. When I do a background I really love, I can't stand to cover it up. This is one of your best works of late.

Emma said...

Hi, can't believe it's taken me so long to come by, very rude of me, sorry! Your tags are looking lovly. I'm amazed at the hummingbird feeder, never seen one before & I haven't managed one dragonfly by my tiny pond - I guess I need to sit there more & to do that I need to clear a little space...! Thanks for your kind comments!
