Two Tags - TIO and Stampman

 This first tag is my DT piece for my TIO challenge. I LOVE stamp layering, as my followers will know, so I stamped the klimpt ladies from the Judikins cube, first... they are four corners around the Leda face in the middle... subtle but there...

 I just continued to stamp and emboss with clear ep., all the faces I could find... I thought it was great fun to add the Tim Holtz steampunk men to the ladies here!!! tee hee... I added oriental faces and even a pharaoh...

 You might even  spy Nefertiti!!! It was great fun to do and I love the colour scheme, which is quite different from many I have done recently.

 This tag is my DT piece for the Stampman challenge of butterflies and dragonflies...  I smooched the card through three different layers of distress inks and dried it... then stamped the large dragonfly as a background...

 Then I stamped the tile in the corner. Using one of the single insects, I flew it to the top of the tag.. It is a very graceful image, I think... I have always loved these plates by Kay Carley... all were painted in the distress inks...

I cut four butterflies from the TH movers and shapers mini set, and smooched them through the same set of inks... a bit of distressing through some punchinella, some lace to top and bottom, and Bob was my male relative, so to speak!!!

So, this week, I have gone really simple - well you all knew that already!!! tee hee... but craftily - not sure that's a word - I have done some quite elaborate stuff recently, so I needed to see if I could just make a tag!! Well, I think they both work, so thanks for looking... please leave me a comment, as I really appreciate your coming and telling me what you think...
Love and Light

They are both beautiful Frankie. I love the layering of the faces and the colours of the first one and the movement of the butterflies and dragonflies together on the second is fabulous.
Have a great weekend.
