wedding tag

I had so much fun doing the last post and loved all the comments. To show I haven't lost all faith in men and romance, I offer my latest tag:

This wonderfully romantic image is from Marie's Freebie's. She has a wonderful site. The image is black and white. I added a touch of color to some of the flowers in front. The layer behind the couple is a distressed paper image and the images are printed on photo paper. The embellishment in the upper right is an old earring from the local antique mall. The "ribbon" at the top is coffee and spice stained cheese cloth.

I put a little sentiment on the back:

The wine colored background is an image from The Graphics Fairy. Her link is on the left of my blog now. If you are familiar with my blog, you know I love her site. I took the image and distressed it. The saying is on a silver cardstock. Ghosted onto the cardstock is an image of some scroll work, also from The Graphics Fairy. I have used this same scroll like this before. I think it looks beautiful under a little poem or saying.

Stand by your man

I would like to share an image with you I created while practicing some new things in photoshop. I am working on putting heads on different bodies. So here is my first attemtp:

Brand New Look

Spring is in the air and I couldn't resist a new spring look for my blog. Over the winter I had a gorgeous grey background from the Background Fairy. For Spring I went with this number from Itkupilli.


Happy Monday to all. Today I have for you 2 variations of a Mother's Day tag. First, the basic elements:
This scroll is from the Graphics Fairy. I love the detail work and all the curves.

I used this piece as a frame. It also comes from the Graphics Fairy. Don't you love the white flowers all around the edge?

This adorable image is from Antique Images. The Links for Graphics Fairy and Antique Images Is on the right sidebar of my blog.

Here is the first tag.
A couple of close ups. You can see where I used the frame. I changed the color and size to fit the image and the tag. The scroll is ghosted behind the sentiment. The quote is from Abraham Lincoln and is hiding under the lace at the bottom of the tag.

And here is the other variation.
I hope you enjoy the tags. I plan to link to Brag Monday over at The Graphics Fairy. Be sure to check out her site. Especially on Mondays. You won't believe the talented people and all the great ideas you'll get!
