Tag Tuesday - Blue and Green

 Blue and Green should never be seen. I have never understood that old saying the two colours compliment each other and look stunning together.   So when I saw the theme for Tag Tuesday at Blog Challenge Garden just knew I would have to enter.

A little while ago at the sewing shop found some beautiful blue and green lace which formed the starting point for this tag.   Base tag coloured with Alcohol Inks Stream and Lettuce over the masked image of three ink pens, you can just see glimpses of these near the bottom of the tag LOL.   In the same sewing shop found a bag of fabulous green buttons, on closer examination found that the bag contained the same style button in three sizes, well had to add them!   A La Blanche stamp, stamped in blue onto white paper which has been distressed with DI 'Old Paper' screwed up and finally roller top and bottom.   Some paper flowers coloured with Glimmer mists and added to the tag.   When it was all assembled a final blast of iridescent gold just catches the high lights.

  10. One thing I have found in art is that there really is no place for "rules", as that silly saying illustrates. The tag is fabulous!
