YAY- Alex is in tag mode again today and I just looooooooooooooooooove Alex in tag mode. She is super happy when she plays with the tags. This one required some very colorful language and I stayed back a bit for my own safety, but Alex's stubbornness prevailed and she was smiling when it was finished.
Alex used the Betty Addams image from Simply Betty Stamps. She thought it would be just lovely paper pieced, and it is. However, when selecting the paper, Alex was more about the end result that actually being able to see the lines to cut on the paper.
Alex first stamped the image on her tag and colored it. She then stamped it on some Bo Bunny Father Christmas paper for the dress and began to cut it out. Many swear words later - due to the darkness of the paper with the black ink and Alex's failing eyesight - the dress was glued onto the image on the tag. The rose was cut and pieced as well. Alex used her markers to create a bit of additional shading on the dress. Distress inks in a couple of colors were used to color the tag.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. It is already in the mail on the way to a new home. Alex keeps most of her tags and I love looking them over and over. This one, however, will be loved by someone else.
