Peace, Hope and Love

This week the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge is Tim's Tags. One of my favorite tags is Tim's Tag 12 from last year. His tag inspired my Peace, Hope and Love tag.   

I was drawn to Tim's tag because of the soft hues of blue and then the tissue paper background and the overall serene effect of the tag.

My tag background started with tissue tape to emulate Tim's tissue paper background.  I added a touch of white acrylic paint and light blue acrylic paint over the tissue tape.  I added a touch of stamped text.  I stamped flourishes around the edges.

The angel was stamped on another piece of cardstock and colored with my watercolor pencils and waterbrush.  I covered the image with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I cut my house, embossed with an embossing folder and added a touch of blue and silver around the edges.
