Wishful thinking

Getting fed up with the cold weather so I made a tag to remind me of my summer holiday last year and all that warm weather, I have decide to make a scrapbook featuring our holls in Italy and I've been collecting stamps and bits and pieces featuring Italy for a while now but have never started the project so I'm hoping this tag is the start of things to come........the stamp is from Dark room door, the background of the tag was distressed using broken China and brushed courdroy and then I masked it and glimmer misted using irridescent gold and midnight blue. I inked up just parts of the main stamp of the Grand Canal and stamped each side the tag  to line up the buildings. The lampost was stamped on grungepaper, with a smidge of gold embossing added to the lamp. The metal Venice label is stamped onto the new TSS peacock metal. just had to add a grunge rose.......

Challenges;

Secret Crafter.....anything goes.
Alphabet challenge...  T is for tag.
Paper Cutz........anything goes.
Gingersnap creations........Frosting, I use glimmer mist to frost everything lol.



Thanks for taking a peek
hugs from Daniele
