Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge using Anastasia

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!! Hope everyone is starting off their week well! Our weekend was spent mostly trying to relax and keep the family healthy from the colds we keep passing back and forth to each other! My hubby and I did have a chance to have a little date night and watch Silver Linings Playbook. And the good thing was that it was just in time for the Oscars on Sunday!  Jennifer Lawrence did a great job and I'm so glad she won!

So this week's challenge theme is Create a Tag or use a tag on your project.

Our fantastic sponsor is QKR Stampede!

Here are some pics of my project...

Tag Envelope and Tag

I found an old Seven Gypsies open envelope in my stash and decided to make a tag holder for my tag! The beautiful girl I have on the front of my tag envelope is Anastasia by Make it Crafty. Isn't this image so pretty?!! I can't wait to get the other images! I stamped her with my memento ink in Black Tuxedo and colored her up with my copic markers.  It was definitely a lot of coloring but so much fun! The paper collection I used for my project is another Glitz favorite called Muse! These are beautiful vintage looking papers. I edged all the papers with my distress inks in Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany since there are a lot of reddish tones on my project.  The flowers are a combo of Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. I added some pretty pearls to the middles of the teal flowers and sprayed them all up with my Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold. I glued them all down using Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect.
The tag I kept plain because I'm not sure whom I will give it to yet.  I did add a smaller tag to it which has a Rose digi by QKR Stampede.  After coloring the rose with the same colors, I thought it matched perfectly with my Anastasia image and all the roses around her.  I also used some pretty Teal ribbon which I found at Michaels  to tie on top of the tag and also added a small butterfly charm. The pearl trims were also added to further embellish the project.
