Tag Tuesday & Card Patterns Sketch 76

Sunday Evening... Time to rest and prepare for the work week. :)

I decided to combine a few challenges today. I started with my tag for the Tag Tuesday challenge. I  was inspired by Dawn's tag and card combination to use my tag on a card.

Louise's tag challenge this week has a guest hostess Sarah.  Sarah proposed creating a tag based on a mannequin form. I downloaded a free template from:  http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/mannequin.htm

Here is my tag:


Sketch #76 from Card Patterns  looks like this:


Here is the finished card:


The inks used include: Ranger Distress Inks - Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Versafine Vintage Sepia, and  Memento Rich Cocoa.

The stamps are mostly Hero Arts. (I think this also qualifies for their Keep in Touch challenge for this month).

I had so much inky fun today. I hope to share some more cards this week. :)

  10. I liked your tag all on it's own because of the dress form shape and pussy willows but on the card with the dressmaker print and the rows of lace the tag becomes the focal point for something stunning.
