Italy.

I love Italy. I had so many ideas for this tag that Mr Mojo seems to have run away with the stress of it all and I am left in the heat with this one, which isn't quite how I wanted it to be!

I just am in total love with the beautiful city of Venice. For this tag I embossed and distressed the background as everything in Venice is like a fading rose, the more worn the better. Then I used a stamp of St Marks that I lightly washed over with watercolours. The Doge type figure is recued from a paper bag that I had kept from my travels, the guilded angel is from an admission leaflet to one of the museums, the mask is from a paint chart that I found in a local DIY store. The little statute stamp and the Italia word I had in my stash. Not quite as I hoped it would turn out, but I am melting! I love all the variety of your Italian tags so far. What a good theme to start the next journey that is Tag Tuesday! Hope you are all keeping nice and cool, Pimms and ice, that's what we need! x
