Just for Fun ~ Wishing Tag


New stamps came in yesterday's mail! The skinny hearts stamped in orange are one of Dyan Reaveley's new releases. They have a ton of potential… they come in a long strip like a border stamp. They're from the "Inbetweenies" set, which has seven different long stamps…. love 'em! 

The sentiment is one of Tim Holtz's new stamps from the Words for Thought set.

I ended up making two tags and then using three Sizzix dies to cut them up: Tim's ticket, heart, and on-the-edge bracket die.

My colors are Mustard Seed Distress Stain and Monarch & Coffee Archival Inks (Ranger).  I used two other heart stamps and Old Lace Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels).


Here's a close-up shot of the shine from the Glimmer Mist (double click to enlarge)
