Tagging an Arch...

I love the colour purple and the theme of 'Tag your Arch' for Gothic Arches combined so well with the theme of 'Purple' over at TYI that I combined both to create this piece. The background is created on purple card with a range of images stamped in purple and cherry Stazon. Then the stamped tag and wording was layered on top with mount pads to raise them off the surface.

I made sure I was all tucked up and cosy this evening to create this piece - the weather has turned arctic again, with the snow front from Russia finally hitting us!! There is an even layer of snow all around, and I am hoping that it either stops so that I can get to work tomorrow safely, or that it keeps snowing hard, lays thick and I get a snow day!!! Here's looking forward to a winter wonderland at 6.30am tomorrow morning....
