Egypt

On Tag Tuesday this week, it's Egypt. I can't remember when I last used my Egyptian stamps, probably years. So out they came, dusted off, and used for this weeks tags. I coloured the backgrounds with distress inks and stamped with black, brown, and rust colours. I embossed the one of  King Tutankhamun on gold mirror card, with a bright blue. I had previously tried to emboss in gold and colour in the blue. Hopeless, so out came the gold card, which seems to have a greenish hue when scanned.. To one of the tags I added gems, and to the other some charms. The photograph does not show up the shiny gold card very well.
