Tag Tuesday challenge #56 - Men!

I love looking at all the wonder vintage/collage tags that people make so thought I'd give it a go for this week's Tag Tuesday. The theme was :Men" -

as this stamp is the nearest I have to a man, it had to do. It is by Inkadinkado. I stamped it onto white card with a Blue Memento Ink and then used Vintage Photo distress ink sponged over it and on the edges. I cut the tag by cutting a strip of cream card the width of the top of my spellbinders label, slip in into the label and cut the top only. I over stamped the tag with HA Old French writing and Music stamp by Kiwistamping.co.nz. Again I distressed the background with the Vintage photo distress ink. I also added some sticky grid which I had coloured with the blue ink, added a button and the gold swirly bit. Quite pleased with the outcome.

Just a very quick post tonight so I can get this into the challenge.  I still have to pack my bag and then it's an early night as the shuttle is arriving at 4.30am to pick us up for our 6.55am flight to Brisbane.  So I'll be away for a few days and won't be able to comment unless I can sneak out to an internet cafe!!!!  so everyone have a great rest of the week and a great weekend --- I will!!!
