Two tags - Two challenges!

I had two challenges I wanted to do tonight, and used tags for both.

Firstly, Tag Tuesday - is to use a tag on a tag.
I sprayed the tag with sunset orange and lettuce colourwashes and used Paperbag Studio stamps from the 'doodles and daters' sheet, and part of a Wendy Vecchi stamp on the small tag. I was going for a "home is where the heart is" feel though didn't have a stamp saying so, which would have been easier!

The second challenge is for Simon Says Stamp and Show - some embossing.


I was keen to try a technique Lin B showed us at Stevenage on Sunday with gilding flakes on metal and which  you then put through a bug or bigshot in an embossing folder - this is a new one of Tim's (new to me) I picked up on Sunday!  As is the Tim stamped sentiment. (well, I had to use my new stuff didn't I!)

Again I used greens/oranges - I can't seem to pick up any other colours just now...

I had fun doing both these, so much so that I didn't watch "Holby City" properly! (a medical drama for anyone here from the US!)
