Tag Tuesday challenge

This week over at Kard Krazy - the challenge has been set by Sarah to use a Mannequin template for your tag.  The template has been provided by Sarah. 

This is what I came up with:

I resized the template to about 3 3/4 inches and printed it on the reverse of my cream card stock and cut it out.  I then stamped the Old French Writing ( Hero Arts) with black ink - missing bits here and there for an antique look... and embossed it with clear EP.  Next I sponged all over with Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Faded Jeans Distress Inks.  I finally stamped a small Fleur de Lis ( Teresa Collins) in the Dusty Concord.  I added some netting and the Dusky Purple and red flowers, the lace and gems.  I'm just pleased you can't see the back of this tag... Trying to get the netting to stay on was a real mission I can tell you!!!   Lots of good old sellotape on the back.

Still at home today and will be for the rest of the week.  Had a chest xray today... all clear but I have a vicious virus that is just going to take time to come right... The doctor said to stay at home for the rest of the week.... As it is only 2 weeks today till we head off.... I will do as she says.... Come hell or high water, I WILL be on that plane!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  I really appreciate you taking the time to visit

oh I do hope your feeling better soon! sorry to hear you've been ill. A wonderful tag you created, you might try some gel medium on the front in the future to hold on the mesh. I've found it works really well. But who sees the back anyway! LOL
