Tag Tuesday! Yeah!

It has been awhile since I was able to play along with the Tag Tuesday and the Hero Arts Challenge.  This week's Tag Tuesday is front and back tags. You need to go check out Louise's tag and challenge because she has such a clever and beautiful tag.  Hero Arts theme this month is gift tags or gifts. I combined the two challenges and came up with this:

The front of my tag:
 and the back of my tag:
The idea behind the front and back tag was to carry your image over onto the back. I did stamp the trees on the front and back in the same position but you don't get the same effect as Louise's tag. I did change up my back to have no highlights which I kind of like as if the front of the tag is what is in the light and behind the trees the colors are stronger and darker. :)

Late post as I gave up on my tag halfway through and set it aside and worked on a few other projects. I came back to it and decided to finish it. I also had a last minute panic thinking I made something very similar last year for the Hero Arts challenge. I went back and looked and it wasn't the same tag. LOL!

The tree and stars images are Hero Arts stamps and the sentiment is Penny Black. Colors (Ranger Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Adirondack Purple)

Have a good night!
