IBFSCC4, Color of Summer and Pink Saturday!

Double Sided Tag makes three posts for me this week!  Mind you the arm still hurts, but too bad!  So you know, I Brake For Stamps now has a challenge blog and if you use at least one IBFS stamp, you will be entered to win a prize.  This week's challenge is Happy Birthday and I made a double sided birthday tag, which will be used as a bookmark!  I stamped 10 roses for each year that I have known my friend!  This friend is actually the main culprit in my stamping addiction, as it was she who had the first workshop I attended!  We are also linking this to Pink Saturday and the Color of Summer!  All stamps are from I Brake for Stamps.

The flowers were inked with Distress Inks, Worn Lipstick and Forest Moss and then clear embossed.  I added color using markers to the roses and leaves.  I then distress the tag, keeping the center lighter.  Gave a quick spray of Glimmer Mist and then removed the embossing.  This is actually the backside of the tag or could be the front, but that is the side I will write on!  The backside has a Bingo card that I alcohol inked a background and then black embossed.  The tag backgrounds I did using the Antique Glimmers from the Technique Junkies.

My DH is taking all of next week off, so my play time will be limited.  We actually need to get some work done around here.  In fact I was suppose to call the window people for an estimate and I did not do that!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and for those who celebrate July 4th, have a safe and happy one! Thank you for the visit and I do enjoy your comments!

CuddlyBunny said...

OK, so I have to start by telling you that I was just over at Lynn's Trash to Treasure and called her "Terry" because I'd been here first reading ... then clicked the wrong thing ... left my desk for a minute ... returned ... I do know who each of you are! I swear! :)

Anyhow ...

This tag is great! Really awesome! The colors, you *know* I'm a pink fiend, and the images! WOW!


Have a great week off with the hubby! Happy 4th!

Hi Terry,
How fantastic!! And I LOVE the pink! Good luck with working on the house--I did that all last week and now I need to start on the garage--100 degrees out!

Jamie said he doesn't need a raise--He just wants a treat! LOL He's so funny--He really does know that I'm putting him up on that chair for pics and he has to be good...so hilarious! He loves it!
