Christmas Colors in July....

......that's the challenge Louise has given us over at Kard Krazy for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge.  We are to use red and green - with a theme of anything *but* Christmas!  I pulled out the beautiful Soul of the Rose plate from Oxford Impressions, and took a little artistic license with this image by reddening her roses.  I stamped the lovely Waterhouse lady on matte coated cardstock, then colored her with Copics.  I added some cool diecut paper to the bottom, and did some distressing and stamping and adding of rub-ons.  I thought this charm from T!m's collection was the perfect sentiment.

Hope you'll have a chance to play along this week!

Jean, you will never believe this, I planned on using that stamp! As I use her so much I opted for clip art. Your tag is just dreamy. Lynne M x

Wow, this is so elegant, Jean. I love the Oxford Impressions stamp. I didn't even know that there were fine arts stamps. I have got to get this set. Thanks for the link. Beautifully done.
