Love Art

I have made this tag for the last Colour Challenge at Gingersnap Creations
 The 4th Annual Copper, Ginger or Rust Challenge.

The background made with  a Studio490 stamp. I then used Katzelkraft stamps to build the layered stamps, with a bit of masking to get Mona in the right place. I have her behind a piece of a Sizzix die cut Fir tree.
All the shading and colouring is  mainly Rusty Hinge, with a little vintage photo towards the centre.
I used some mica powder to highlight the tree before stamping and embossing another Studio490 stamp
To finish all the tag edges were embossed  with distress powder.

I will also enter this tag in the new Challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate the comments you leave.


  1. I love how you've used the fir tree. And that little heart finishes off the tag beautifully :0)
