Tagging....Tim Holtz & Lavinia Stamps

Not the first pairing of stamps you'd think of, is it? Tim Holtz & Lavinia stamps. But they seemed the perfect match. I decided it was time I used up some of the tags I'd inked up an Ice Age ago. Browsing some of my Tim Holtz stamps, particularly the wordy ones, this combo sprang to mind:

The tag is coloured with Adirondacks, Sunshine Yellow, Citrus & Meadow. I split the wording of the Tim stamp, and used a Distress Marker, Vintage Photo, to make that easier.
Which left me room in the middle for my main image, from Lavinia stamps. The ivy around the edge is also a Lavinia stamp.Both stamped in Onyx black Versafine. Stickles in Diamond added to her wings.I also added Black Diamond Stickles to the ends of the flower stem.

Stamps used:
 Tim Holtz Stuff to Say, CMS110.
Lavinia Stamps Flower Fairy
Lavinia Stamps Creeping Vine
Adirondack dye inkpads, Sunshine Yellow
Citrus & Meadow
Versafine Onyx Black
 Distress Marker, Vintage Photo
Stickles Diamond & Black Diamond
