CCC#33 and Simon Says Stamp and Show some Stripes!

March 5th is our 28th Anniversary and I made this for my DH.  It is a picture of a party we went to MANY moons ago!   Hard to believe how time flies!  Speaking of anniversaries, you might want to stop by on March 5th and that is all I will say.  The background for this tag was covered with some tissue wrap my DH used on a gift for me last year.  I then inked over it in a striped fashion with the three Distress Inks.  The interesting thing with the tissue paper is that the silver print comes through once inked.  I wiped off any excess ink and edged it all in black.  Not sure if I will use some decorated threads or chain for this.  Is that not way cool??  The frame was cut with black chipboard, highlighted with Opalite Nordic Ice ink and then clear embossed.  A bit of the blue comes through and give the frame a metal/lacquer look.  The winged heart and word sticks used the Altered Metal Alcohol Inks from this weeks CCC#33 over at Linda's. Not sure if this is quite the stripes that Simon Says Stamp and Show some Stripes had in mind, but I will let them decide.



Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Happy almost anniversary to you and you man! I hope you guys have something wonderful planned, and I LOVE the photo of you two!!! This tag is just fantastic, Terry. The altered metal is perfect, and the background with the lovely lettering looks amazing, with those rich colors and silvery text.

The trick with the silver tissue paper is WAY cool! The entire piece is way cool, in fact! And that's what I always know to expect when I visit your fabulous blog.
