TAG TIME at Fashionable Stamping

Thanks for popping over here lovely bloggers  - I hope you are all enjoying sunshine wherever you are. It's been glorious weather for the last few days here in West Yorkshire, and I had to kick myself up the proverbial  to come indoors and join in with the Fashionable Stamping girls, but I really wanted to take part in their Tag Time challenge!  I don't often do tags - I find the small space a challenge in itself, but I do love trying something out of my comfort zone now and again!!  Here it is ......................!

It is a good job that we are not all the same and tags and this type of image are not me at all, but there again things I do are not other people thing either, BUT that doesn't mean that I can not appreciate the work that has gone into the creation and this looks fabulous.
I hope that you and your Hubby enjoy your break.

Regarding your comments about making tags - I feel exactly the same way:)
But you've made GORGEOUS one! The torn bottom, your use of acrylic paints and distress inks - they're all perfect details to this wonderful vintage creation! I also think the 3 cross stitches are fab details.

Well this looks totally in your comfort zone Sylvia, such a gorgeous shabby tag. I love the corrugated texture, the tearing, the lace and the layers, in fact everything. You did a great job girl. Thanks for sharing this at FSC.
Hope you are having a good weekend and enjoy your break.
