Compendium - week 7 - tinted fragments

I love Mondays!! this week's Compendium challenge hosted by Linda is this week on page 55 - tinted vision fragments.  I can't give you the lowdown on the technique, you have to use the book.

There are already some great entries - and this week there are some even more stupendous prizes - so check it out.
I used tumbled glass and chipped sapphire inks on the tag and a pearly/DI  reinker for some shimmer, and I don't think it would hurt if I said I'd used denim, stream and caramel on the fragment.

 The fragment uses a picture of Queen Victoria from my hardly used Instant Art book that Suze produced some years ago -other than that, I've used Tim's mask and Tim's stamps throughout.  I took a "time" theme based on the longevity of Queen Victoria's reign on the throne. Unfortunately she's gone a bit wrinkly - that's me with too much glue, not her fault!! 

Enjoy the rest of your Monday. Can't wait to see what next week's theme is already!

Luscious tag, Helen! Love the theme, and your fragment colors are great!

Helen, your tag is fabulous! The Queen herself would be proud (and would forgive the wrinkles) if she could see this. I love how you used the theme of time with the image of Victoria-- and I love the design, too. The Fragment is perfection!
