Sunday Stampers - Week 232 - I've Just Seen A Face

I did have a little Christmas countdown blingy think at the bottom of my blog at one time but it seems to have disappeared!  I don't really need it to know that it is fast approaching & with very little done in this houshold I think I better start to get a shimmy on. 

On Hels Sheridan's blog this week she has chosen the theme of 'faces' & has made a gorgeous tag. Check it out here.  I have made a tag which has a bit of a Victorian feel to it.  I began by colouring a cream tag with Distress Inks Dusty Concord & Victorian Velvet, then edged the tag with my favourite Distress Ink Walnut Stain.  I stamped a Tim Holtz script stamp in Dusty Concord over the tag in two different directions then splashed with water & dried.  The Frame is one of the new Spellbinders D-Lites (Medallion Two) cut from black card. I stamped the girl (Wavy Locks-Rubber Stamp Tapestry) onto white card, cut out her face (Sissiz circle die) & mounted onto the frame.  This is such a pretty stamp & the first time I have used it despite have it for years & years!  I added the pretty flowers, pocking the wire through the frame then mounted to the card with a strip of blue velvet behind - I had to use Pinflair glue because of the wire behind the frame bulking it out a bit.  The 'Love' stamp is Anna Griffin & the lace stamp is Hero Arts. I have added some cream lace, key & vintage decopage from my stash & the drop crystal is from Prima.
I'm looking at this tag now & wishing that I had stamped the girl in brown or added some vintage photo to colour her up. Why didn't I think of that before? I shall have to make another one!!  I love the fact that all the submissions to this great challenge are all so different. Just noticed that I numbered the last Sunday Stampers as '321' - sorry Hels - now corrected!!  I hope you all have a great week. Sx
