Tag Tuesday Challenge # 55 - My Favorite Things

Louise's challenge for  this week is to use your favorite things on your tag.  Here's my tag:



I had too many favorites to fit on one tag so I focused on a few of them:

  • Lace (Love the look and feel of the lace)
  • Techniques. Love playing with techniques and had a good friend over and we played with shaving cream and the backgrounds on this tag were created using the shaving cream techniques.
  • Twine (This keeps sneaking onto my cards and tags)
  • Birds or Butterflies - Since I started with the sentiment on this card first I went the bird route. :)
  • Distressing - Love distressing!
  • Memento Rich Cocoa and/or Versafine Vintage Sepia
  • Embellishments - definitely hooked on pearls, buttons, gems...
  • Text - Love the look of the text on the backgrounds.
This was a fun challenge and I hope you enjoyed a few of my favorites.

Now to share something else beautiful...  Lynn sent me this as a RAK and I was thrilled to receive it!


I feel so lucky because she creates such beautiful projects and now I have one for my collection!   Thanks Lynn!

This is amazing! The chalking around the edges is very striking here. Love the way the sentiment label goes off the tag. Love everything about this really:)

This is stunning Sue. I'm intrigued by the shaving foam technique. I've made marbled backgrounds using shaving foam as the support for the inks but am amazed you can achieve such a precise design.

The colours you have chosen are amongst my favourites too and the birdcage is gorgeous.

As always loads of inspiration from you.
