CCT - tag

CCT wants to see tags this week - so it could be a tag card or just a tag somewhere on your card. I went for the easy option and used a tag and thought I'd use a Sarah Kay image which I haven't used for a very long time (this one is the first time it's been inked!).
As the image is farmy/rustic I chose papers and fibres to keep to that feel. The papers were actually meant to be the other way round - the big background piece was supposed to be the pink side and the strip behind her should have been yellow but I stuck the scalloped borders to the wrong side of that piece (obviously still wasn't 100% - no that isn't normal !) so I had to flip them - joys of double sided papers, easy to make mistakes but also easily rectified :)
  • Images: 'country girl' Sarah Kay stamp, sentiment is a Magnolia stamp (do love the sentiments they do now - love the fonts they use)
  • Colouring: Copics and yse, been doing that sponging thing with my distress inks again for the background - think it's out of my system now LOL
  • Papers: K & Co 'wild raspberry' pad, the tag is from matching tag pad
  • Others: labels nesties (can never remember what number the sets are) just used technique to cut around her head and traced around the nestie to get the larger brown mat (which is scrap piece of packaging I saved as it has lovely wood grain effect pattern printed on it), raffia ribbon, paper twine, roses, Fiskars apron lace border punch and MS branch punch.

Right, need to go get my haircut today (nothing major, it's always some sort of a mid length bob which ends up growing out until I can't ignore it anymore and it needs another prune) and think about what I need for next week's little jaunt to Paris.

Sorry not been blog hopping recently but haven't been in the mood what with my cold but feel better today so will try and come say hello later tonight.

Have a lovely day, even if the weather's miserable like it is here!
