A Couple of Challenges

I made this tag to enter into the Altered Tag challenge for the grand opening of I Did It Creations.  Then someone pointed me to a Vintage/Aged challenge at Creative Card Crew.  So I'm entering it in both challenges.  This isn't usually my style, but I think it's growing on me.  So here is the tag...
To make the tag, I cut a piece of 6 1/4 X 3 1/4" cs.  Then I tore a few pieces of different tissue papers and scrunched them up.  I smoothed them out then added them to the cs with mod podge.  I let it dry overnight.  Then I found a stamp I wanted to use and added it to the background to add a little more dimension.  Then I added this great Swan Song image from the Enchanted line from The Stamping Boutuique.  I love this new line Tracey has come up with.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for taking a look.  Have a great day.


P.S. I thought I would add that my 9yo daughter has started her own blog since she like to make cards and enter challenges with me.  If you all would like to check it out I've added a link in my sidebar.

it's beautiful Rhonda - I love the way you've created the background, it reminds me of the stuff I used to do when I was studying textile design (and believe me I need reminding - it was a long time ago lol!)

Thanks for taking part at Creative Card Crew
