Roses are Red


The new theme  at Tag Along  is -Roses are Red,  a super  challenge  subject especially as its Valentines Day today. I have  many pieces of pre- inked, stamped and generally messy cards ready to be cut, so this is what I used for the base of the tag. The die cut  shape was stamped with script, shaded with Victorian velvet distress ink, and splashed with water that I wash my brushes in. Now this was accidental, as I knocked the water jar, but the result didn't look too bad. The rose [an old old favorite] was stamped, embossed and then water coloured.
Thank you for stopping by today, I always appreciate your comments.
