Bring on the TAG!!!!

and who doesn't just LOVE MAKIN' TAGS!!! I have me a WHOLE pile of them!!

So I was WAY HAPPPPY when I learned this weeks challenge at
Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog was..........A TAG!!

With it being soooo close to Valentines Day....I couldn't resist using it as the theme of my tag.

NOW.....I have to say I even impressed myself with this flower!!
I used linen fabric and the Tattered Floral die and my WONDERFUL Distress Reinker Mixtures
(I can't wait for the 2 oz bottle to be released!!)

(2) large flowers colored with Aged Mahogany
(1) large flower colored with Victorian Velvet with end dipped in Aged Mahogany
(1) large flower colored with Victorian Velvet
(1) spindly flower colored with Victorian Velvet
(2) spindly flowers colored with Worn Lipstick
(2) medium flowers colored with Spun Sugar
(1) medium with a hint of Spun Sugar
(the 3 medium flowers were cut 2 x's each in every petal)

When flowers are drying, cumple them up a bit. When totally dry,  lather on a layer of Claudine's AMAZING Multi Medium. When they are almost dry...give 'em another crumple!!

Adhere layers together and there you have it!!!

Do you see that blingage on there??? another LOVE of mine.....Vintage Glitter Glass!!

I look forward to seeing your creation over at Simon Says Stamp and Show!! 

You could win this!!!
