Day 12 - Plus One

Before I could get started on the next projects, I had to clean up a bit and found the background tissue paper background - so I thought, what the hey, I'll just do one more tag, and here it is. 

Aside from the amazingly cute kitty, I actually like a lot about this tag. I didn't have the die cuts for the houses, so I just made one out of grunge board. How amazing is that stuff?  Oh, I could go on for several paragraphs, but I digress.... I loved how it did exactly what Tim said it would. I painted it with two coats - it really is so much better to do 2 light coats instead of one thick one....sanded it and then used walnut stain ink. The stickles are like magic with the paint over top of them; it looks very beach-y to me.

I like the foil lace, but it's a bit tricky. One must have patience which we know is not my most strongest suit. However I hung in there and was happy I did. I love how you get bonus lace from the die cut!! The tissue paper flower worked and then I had this old silver plastic stuff that has literally been kicking around for years - but I think it's perfect on this tag.

And just one more picture of the cute kitty. Reminds me of one of our cats - Ben, right after he's done something he knows is bad. He's so dang cute, I can hardle be mad at him....

Next project: A Valentine's Album for Stamp Cache.
