Tim tag #9

Hello my friends.  The house is a mess, there are dirty dishes in the sink, but... I have another tag done!

Here's the link to Tim's tag #9.  And here's my version.

The background is a Hero Arts stamp called pine flourish, stamped with pine needles distress ink and embossed and then colored over with barn door distress ink and embossed.  Over that I added vintage photo distress ink. 

Since I don't have the candlestick die, I made a street lamp using the sewing room die and the mini bird & cage die set.  I did something similar in this post.  I just trimmed off part of the dress form to make the post taller.  It's painted with pitch black and snow cap paint dabbers.  For the light in the lamp, I trimmed a piece of packaging plastic to fit and colored it with sunset orange and sunshine yellow alcohol inks and then backed that with white card stock.  The bow is part of a haul I made when a local craft store closed several years ago. 

The letters are from a retired Sizzix alphabet called block party.  I inked the black card stock with versamark and then with two coats of clear UTEE. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I guess I need to go wash the dishes now.
