Dragons-Dream - #TIO 113 - Angels & Demons

Time for another Tag It On challenge - this week, Blackdragon has chosen Dan Brown's "Angels &Demons" - the sequel to "The Da Vinci Code". I did read it not long after it came out but was a bit stumped for images, so I've gone with some angels (Judikins) and the secret code/spying theme... (stamps by Paperartsy and Wendy Vecchi)

I've coloured the tag with distress stains (antique linen, scattered straw, crushed olive, & vintage photo round the edges) and used black soot and frayed burlap distress ink for the images. The letters are die cut with two Tim Holtz alphabet dies. The memo pin through the trim says 'secrets' though I couldn't get close enough in to show that!

I hope you'll come and check the others out - and take part - just remember to make a tag, use at least one real stamp and the theme. Thanks and have fun!

Love this! the colours are heavenly (see what I did there?!) and I love the idea of a secret code...! That lace is a bit gorgeous too!

Gorgeous tag, love the DI colours and the 'angels'. 6" snow and no electricity for 4 hours, no mobile phone, no landline. Makes you realise how much we rely on modern technology. Electric back on, we have heating, yeah xx
