Tag a Day project #8

Well, there I am again with yet another tag. I know I missed a few days because other things came in between, but I am still determined to get this finished, which is not hard as I am enjoying the process and that was what this project was all about, so here goes: - No 8
This one is much simpler than some of the previous ones, probably as close to Clean And Simple as I will ever get.... Background was a mix of Distress Paints and Inks, Antique Linen, Bundled Sage and Frayed Burlap, stenciled with a mix of Crafters Workshop stencils and a bit of stamping with the Tim Holtz Papillon background stamp.
The main stamp is another La Blanche, here you can see a further detail of this stamp:

A Prima embellie, some old lace and a pen nib

And finally, some Type Writer keys and chit chat stickers by way of a sentiment and there you have it.....

In a way I was practising some techniques for a bigger DT project that I may show some time next week, we'll see where that goes. Meanwhile, thank you so much for visiting and like always I feel so grateful for your wonderful comments. I try and pay as many return visits as I can, but do not always make it, so apologies for that....

  24. This one is so delicately pretty... the background colours so subtly blended. The tissue tape adds interest beautifully, and what a fantastic motto... you'll know how much that hits home at the moment!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
