Well at my son's school there are some teachers that are retiring and he asked me to make some cards for them. This is one of those cards.
I started with a manila tag and stamped the lady from pomp and pageantry from Indigoblu in second generation black archival ink. I think this woman is very strong and determined and you could see this from her face. I coloured her with distress markers mainly tattered rose, weathered wood and tumbled glass.
Then I set about preparing the background. I masked image and stamped various images in different brown distress inks from Sarah's choice and the flourish again from pomp and pageantry. Then i inked the background with distress inks and added shadow around main image.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape below lady and across one upper edge and inked up those areas again.
As I didn't have matching ribbon I tinted some american seam binding in matching inks and tied a double bow. I added a Tim Holtz accroutement over the bow and some ideology flowers at the bottom corner.
And that is the finished tag.
The card was created with same stamps, but in more faded colours so as not to compete with the tag.
Hope you like my offering, Theresa xx
