Yet Another Tag

Well it's week 9 of Dragonsdream Tag It On Challenge, the weeks are just flying. This week the theme is Eternal Goddess "think earth colours, ancient goddesses etc".

Well we've had some difficult challenges over the weeks and yet again I was stumped as I had no stamps that fit the bill so it was another trip over to Mum to raid her stamp store. She came up trumps again and I did have an idea of what I wanted to do. Late on Friday I spritzed, stamped and embossed and wasn't sure that I liked what I had done so slept on it, not literally you understand.

By next morning I was certain I didn't like it. Take 2. This one was better. I coloured the background with watercolour pencils, printed an earth image from the Internet and cut it out. I stamped just the head from the stamp using Faded Jeans distress ink and embossed with clear ink. It was coloured with the pencils again. I added the little swirls, a bit of glitter to look like stars and some white dots just to highlight the swirls a bit.

Once again I have been thoroughly challenged and the family had a lot of input into this weeks end result. My mojo was running a bit low I think, so thanks to them.

Beautiful tag, Lisa! You have made me think now... I have quite a few Non Sequitur stamps that would fit this theme. You'd be welcome to borrow mine if you lived closer!

Hi Lisa - I know what you mean about never having the right stamp, it really is a challenge isn't it? How nice that you have your Mom's stamp drawer to raid, it's so great to play with someone else's stamps. This tag is fabulous and fits the theme perfectly. Cheers! Rhonda

Do you know something? Your lovely encouraging comments just make my day. Michelle and Janet, I have e-mailed you both about Embsay and Sally, I'd love to be able to swap stamps and ideas. Just a pity all those miles seperate us. Maybe we can do something about it in the future!

Hi Lisa, sorry it's taken me so long to get here. I came specificially to say thank you so much for all your lovely comments whilst I've been so under the weather. And what do I find, a tag that I adore and a wonderful picture for me of my favourite flower - the lily and what a fantastic specimen and unusual colour.

I will be thrilled to display it on my sidebar. Afraid your RAK did not make the post today, but promise I'll get things sorted tomorrow.
