Tag Your Arch!


Seeing as how I only commented a couple of days ago about how much I was enjoying making tags, imagine how I smiled when I saw this weeks challenge on Gothic Arches was called 'Tag Your Arch'!
I completely resisted the temptation to use one of the tags I had recently made and went off in search of this stamp.
It's one by Elusive Images and I really think it's pretty. I like the co-ordination and duplication between the large plate and the smaller tag.
I sponged and distressed the background in varying shades of pink and used watercolour paint to colour the hydrangea petals.
This arch and it's tag will prbably end up on a card!

Lovely arch, the fiber trim is a perfect touch and such a pretty color too!

the arch and tag together are just scrumptious :).

D'you know, I tried to buy this design plate from the EI sale, but it had sold out and wasn't in my order :(.

Still, I got another one I love for a bargain price, you can't have 'em all.

Lovely work Viv
