Tag Tuesday challenge #51 - Inspiration from Home

Louise's tag challenge this week is to create a tag inspired from something in your home.   I had to think about this for a little bit and I decided to use a few items from our dining room as an inspiration.
I paired them up for the photo. :) The flowers and wrought iron basket usually sit in the center of the dining room table.  The angel is usually on the side buffet.

The background and my tag shape was stamped and cut out  for another challenge but never used. It was the closest stamp I had to the wrought iron on the basket.

The hydrangea is from Hero Arts and I stamped it multiple times with a mask to create the draping effect. I wanted to capture my angel on the tag somehow but forgot I even had an angel stamp until I was digging around in my misc stamp drawer and found this tiny angel.  She is sweet and I don't think I have ever used her before.

I am really excited because next week I am going to take a class with the fabulous Michelle Zindorf.  Love her work and I am hoping to pick up a few techniques.  In addition my good stamping buddy Lisa is going too so quality stamping time with a friend!

Thanks so much for stopping by... I hope you have a lovely Friday.

  2. What a clever take on the challenge Suzz and you are right, the little angel is really sweet. I think you've captured the essence of your chosen items perfectly.

    Lucky you going to a Michelle Zindorf class. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time and we (your faithful blog followers) will benefit from it because I bet we'll see lots of lovely makes on here.
