Count your blessings


Had fun this morning playing with some left over bits and pieces. Just enough to make this tag.
 The base is  from my latest Gelli plate experiments. There were a few white areas as I hadn't used enough paint. Easily covered with some Spiced Marmalade and Vintage photo distress inks.


I used an old photo image, not sure where it came from now.
This I die cut and layered up.
The oval metal trimming shows the word 'blessings'.
This started off a green color in the center, before I used gilding wax to tone it down.

There is a new Challenge blog called Tag Along, who's very first theme is Vintage. So I will be joining the fun over there.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
