Tag Tuesday Double Tagged

Sheesh! It's been forever.... first I was busy, then I was sick (just a nasty cold, but it lingered and made me extremely fatigued), and by then my mojo was gone.  I still haven't found it, not even a hint of it.  But I had to do *something*, so I inked up some new stamps - Artistic Outpost's Think and Wonder plate - and entered Louise's Tag Tuesday Challenge, which is to put a tag (or tags) on our tag.  Very fun!

This did not turn out at all as I'd planned (and saying that I even had a plan is very generous!).  The background is paint on vintage text, distressed and stamped with a Stampington swirl.  The image and words are from the AO plate.  I colored the girl with pencils and Copics.  The rest is ribbon, rub-ons, pearls.  Not happy with it, but I've got to try to get back in the game somehow!  You can check out some truly gorgeous artwork over at Kard Krazy. :)

Jean,
I think this is lovely, don't be so hard on yourself. I too was not feeling into it, but thought it was better to just do something, rather than nothing. Mine may not win any awards.....but still good to create.

Well, I think your tag is great. I love the colors and the mix of embellishments that you used. I do know what you are saying about the mojo thing however, but your tag is very nice!

Wendy said...

Your tag is adorable. For not having any Mojo you did a great job.

I really don't know what you are talking about.. This Tag is wonderful.. I just love it.. But I do know what it feels like to lose your mojo... I lost mine for awhile. But you will get it back..
It probably just needed a little break!!

Hugs, Linda

I think its beautiful and can't imagine how long it took to cut out all those areas around the stamp.
Glad your feeling better!

Stunning tag! That little girl is an amazing image and I love the way you did the extra tags for the words!

Well, I think it's fantastic! I have that stamp set but haven't had a chance to use it yet. You've inspired me to ink it up!

Hope you're feeling better. :-)
