A Tag/Sign for Anna!

A friend from Twopeas in a Bucket sent me a huge RAK, and inside was this wood mounted stamp of the lady in the tag. So I made this as a part of my way of saying thank you. 

Again I used aluminum foil backed with chipboard and colored it with a deep red alcohol ink. Then I added layers of different colors of Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels! After that was dried I used Staz On ink to stamp french text on to the aluminum foil. I stamped the image of the lady on to a piece of cardstock and backed it with chipboard, distressed it, raised it up on some pop dots and adhered it to the bigger tag. Added pearl trim, Prima Flowers, lace and a stamped distressed quote from Tim Holtz Stamps. Suspended the tag on chain, added some charms, and walla this is what I got!!!

Hope all of you have been enjoying all that you see on here. If anyone ever has any question on how I did something, please leave me a message and I'll do my best to answer it. Everyone have a Happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Please remember all the Sailor, Soldier, Devil Dogs, and Airmen who have paid the ultimate price in keeping our country free!
