Sisters…Friends Tag

Sisters Tag for blog w border

I enjoyed the Enameled Stamping technique so much this week that I made two tags! This technique is described on page 44 of Tim Holtz’s book Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2, and the challenge is sponsored by Linda Ledbetter at Studio L3.

For the background of the tag I used Peacock Feathers, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. The background stamp is from Hero Arts. I love the stamp of the two little girls from Artistic Outpost (stamp set Birds of a Feather, stamped with Archival Coffee), as it reminds me of my sister and myself. So, I opted to use that as the theme for the tag. (Oh, my, we have shared SO MANY secrets!)

The flower is cut from crinoline and Kraft Glassine paper, using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. I stained the crinoline with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and inked the edges with Vintage Photo.

I am also entering this tag in these challenges:

Take two!! I love this tag and think it is by far the better of the two. The colours have great depth and all the little elements work so well together. I also love the sentiment behind the tag too - I have sisters who are very important to me too.
Thank you so much for sharing a second tag with us at ABAC's first challenge and I certainly didn't expect to see you quite so soon after the last entry!! Thank you for the smile on my face.
