Text

Another great theme for Tag Tuesday, thank you, Carolyn! Having said that, next week's theme has me quaking in my boots, lol. But back to this week and TEXT.

I must have been thinking about and longing for Spring, because I picked some sweet pastel Spring colours for the tag background ( 4 different distress inks blended together ). I made a little stencil with different sized holes and used a metallic copper ink through them for a bit of background interest and then printed some handwritten text in black ink here and there. The focal point of the tag is a piece of TEXT from a 1713 Italian book ( the paper feels amazing, btw ). I ran a gold ink pen round the tag to define the edges and that was it really -





Have a wonderful week, wherever you are. Toodlepip xxx
