Sunday Stampers 164. Back to Black.

Well, goodness knows where last week went as I'm pretty sure I didn't sleep through it! So I was determined to do the Sunday Stampers this week. Hels has called for us to use Back to Black in memory of Amy Winehouse, so here is my contribution.
Back too Black
I used Black soot distress ink with a sponge applicator over the tag,especially the edges and then used the Time stamp all over it. The black swirls are I believe from Prima, I've had them ages and lost the packing. The Prima rose could not be made better by me, although I was tempted to turn it to porcelain with my melt pot but felt it looked better as it was. Then I covered some grungeboard with  music tissue tape and cut out a star. The words 'The Song Lives On' were from one of my letter sets edged in black promarker. The lower edge was cut from sheet music and then a border cut with a Martha Stewart edge punch. Black and white ribbon to finish.
A tragic end to such a young spirit, my heart goes out to her family.


  1. Very classy tag, the colours are striking. Love the bird and star too. Tracy xv

  2. Very classy tag, and a great tribute to a great singer. I feel for her family too - it has been uncomfortable watching her decline. Such a waste of talent.

    Another lovely one for the album ~ a very fitting tribute tag to Amy, bless her heart. Just finishing the last of my packing and then we will be off. Take care, have a good holiday too and I will be in touch soon.
