Live the life you've imagined
Hels' song of choice for this week's challenge (#113) is from Queen. I'm not familiar with the song but it has to do with loving and living; I think it's called 'Love of My Life'. I smudged several pink, blue and purple distress inks (light colors) all over my #8 tag. The large 'Live' is a Sizzix die. I cut it out then placed it on the tag and smudged more ink through the letters; stamped some of Tim's flowers on the 'L' with Plum Archival Ink. With the negative portion still in place I faux stitched around each letter with an ultra fine point black Sharpie. A strip of torn paper was added to one end, Tim's calendar tissue tape to the other; the edges were distressed further with darker distress inks (same color families). Tim's umbrella man was stamped in Dusty Concord on manila card stock, cut out (what a pain to cut between his arm and body and around the brolly!), pop dots elevate his stature. Tim's sentiment was stamped in Plum Archival Ink and Dusty Concord Distress Ink for a shadowed effect. Tim's line of birds sit on top of the smaller letters while a Martha Stewart bird punch (black with Dusty Concord Distress Stickles) sits at the end. Ta da!
