A Tag for TIO

Well, better late than never, is all I can say... but I have managed a tag for DragonsDream Tag It On this week, even though it should have been done by Wednesday last!!! I have been so busy and so Seasonal Ajustment Disorderly!!! as well as still not having much thumb use... and Freddie's card finally got finished and he loved it... so I shall show you that another day.

 So, the theme is romance because the film title is "Letters To Juliet"... lots of scope there for people to go to town on all aspects of the theme... My DreamTeam did a splendid job, all round, and I love what they have made. I really wanted to join in, so kept to the romantic face images and the letters/postal idea... the TH nibs are always a winner!!

 I used the bricks folder with brown coredinations and sanded back for texture. I cut a hole in the bricks and stuck in it a ickle postcard stamped piece... it's just SO dinky!!

 Time is involved quite heavily in the story, so a TH clock sets the scene, trimmed with a ickle flower, aww!!
Below is the whole thing...

 I used my new postage stamp punch to make the shape with the enigmatic lady on... most of the stamps used are by Artemio, but that one is on a cube from StampAddicts... it is an oldie but a goodie, and so useful...

I am loving the colours, which are mainly the new twigs - I LOVE LOVE LOVE it as a colour - and milled lavender, which is echoed in the ribbon through the top.. I stamped in sepia and black archival, and the background to my tag is from the Tattered Time stack by DCWV, which is my new FAVE, being clocks, and a bit steampunk and definitely from the decade I was born!!!!. My Laura Denison kit using that paper, has not come yet, but I will give you a stash haul when it arrives!!

So, off to bed now as I still have to go take the boys to school in the morning, but they are both back living at home now, so that lets me off a couple of hooks!!!... Thanks for coming over, hope you enjoyed my newest tag... and thanks for your lovely comments, which I crave, quite frankly, tee hee!!!
Love and light
Frankie

This is such a wowzer Frankie so much intricate detail has been added with the stamping and the ickle postcard is, as you say, just dinky. The ladies face is a beautiful touch and softens everything perfectly.

Thanks for sharing this adorable creation with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

Hugs Shirley x x
