My name is Linda and I'm addicted to Tags

I'm mostly only making tags these day, just trying lots of different techniques, making lace and tassels and putting charms together, having a lot of fun. I really like this one, I cut a couple of Marianne Designs Doilies out of scrap card and used them as masks, sponging over them with watered down ink pad in blue...by whispers. I inked up stamps in the same ink...not watered down though. The Stamps are a set by Tim Holtz, fast becoming another obsession...as if I needed another one. I used bits of the same flourish stamp to decorate around the edges of the tag. Finished off with some charms (the heart says Made with Love), beads and some of my crocheted lace and a tasseled crocheted ribbon. 

 A couple of close ups of the details ...


I'd like to enter my tag in the challenge at 
Totally Paper Crafts for ~ Anything But Christmas
