Sunday Stamper: Diamonds are Forever.

Hi everyone, I seem to be a bit remiss with my posts, it's the weather and the holidays but I've managed to produce a tag for Hels challenge over at her blog this week.  She asks us to incoporate diamonds into our offering so here is mine.
I've taken a diamond stamp from Paperbag Studios and used it as the background against a distressed tag using Mustard Seed and Squeezed Lemonade. then I water coloured my Diva stamp that was stamped onto watercolour paper (can't find the maker - sorry!) and edged it with Walnut Ink and added the sentiment which I treated to match. Then I did another image of the girl and added her with sticky fixers.
 I stained the ribbon at the top and left it there. I feel I need to add something but can't think what, any ideas anyone? I hope to find some more in depth time to craft this weekend, fingers crossed! Thanks for looking xx


  1. Fab tag Barbara..I love all the elements and colours..and I like it as it is! Carole Z X

  2. love it, the diamonds are gorgeous ... very pretty... Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  3. The diamonds are beautiful, I love that image of the lady and that sentiment is brilliant! Love this tag. Hugs, Anne x

  4. I love the muted colors, the imagery and the sentiment in this romantic composition. I think the tag is beautiful just the way it is. However, if you feel you need to add something, perhaps you may consider adding a small tattered white daisy around the corner area where her shoulder and sentiment meet? Again, it's beautiful as it is, so this is just a thought that came to me in response to your question. Blessings, my friend!

  5. What a lovely tag I love the feel of the composition of it and especially the sentiment, where did you get it?

    1. Hi Marita, thanks for your lovely comment. I believe I got the sentiment from Cats Eye Press years ago, but I lost the info on it! Hope that helps. Barb x
