Tag-Velope 490 Stylee

...cor blimey, what a weekend!! Boiling hot and busy, busy, busy... I got absolutely nothing made and it was actually quite nice to just faff instead of concentrating. This tag turned into a Tag-Velope late on Sunday night.... and then sat there, sweating ever so slightly until I returned to the Room of Stash today to finish it off.

The base of the tag and the velope were smudged with TradTan paint.. and then splatted with Distress Stains. I used a gorgeous 490 background to stamp over the base of the Velope using Aquamarine Archival Ink,... and then added a word or two and a flower to decorate.

The tag was overstamped using Coffee Archival with stripes at the top and my fave flower border along the bottom... and then I added some pearls (they are on a strip so far easier than placing them individually!) I made a big Grungepaper flower, again using 490 stamps and Distress Inks... and added Maya Road chippie bits for the sentiment and the birdy.

So... tis a special day today! Yes, indeedily, it is our wedding anniversary... 9 years ago today I pledged my troth to my lovely Grim... I can't believe that all those years have just whipped past, it feels like only yesterday... although if you ask Grim he might possibly say that it feels like a lot longer rofl.... So, because it is our anniversary today, I bobbed a little Maya Road Bingo Counter onto the flower... and it is a #9! Cool huh!!

Anyways... time for me to get cracking on tidying up this messy old Room of Stash... don't forget to check back tomorrow because I will be annoucing the winner of the tag giveaway from last weeks WOYWW. Thanks for looking... TTFN
