TAG IT ON #33 - In the City...

Today I am showing you the tag I have made for the TAG IT ON CHALLENGE! this week.  I love these challenges...its a chance to fiddle & faff around with stamps hahahaha!

The theme this week is...IN THE CITY...a lovely change to work with building type stamps instead of cutsie bunnies etc don't you think???

I have used Distress Inks throughout mine, except for the arch wihich was stamped with Versafine.  I swooshed colours onto my glass board to drop the card in and then over stamped the arch. I think this arch is magnificent.  Its actaully called 'Domino Shrine' and is by Lost Coast Designs. I painted the arch with Frayed Burlap to make it stand out a little more.  The quote stamp is another of my faves but can't remember where I got that from.


If you fancy getting away from pretty stuff pop over and have a go!  Thank you for looking today, HUGS XXX

Karen, your masterpiece makes me want to go try, try again. And that arch stamp is definitely a I-gotta-have-it. Thanks for saying who it's by so I can check on getting one for myself.

Your swooshed background is fantastic and the extra coloring you added to the arch really is so gorgeous.
