Hi Folks,

Hm.....Wish you were Near!!!  

Our challenge over at Try It On Tuesdays this fortnight is 'Anything Goes' and .........for my offering I have had a messy time with this one.

My tag was originally intended for Studio L3's CCV2, but didn't get finished, however I did like the white stamping and didn't want to waste my background. The Distress inks used were Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers and Squeezed Lemonade, and although its hard to see.lots of scrpt and swirl  images were stamped on the background with Milled  Lavender.  I embossed top and bottom with TH Bookplate EF.
My lady was stamped twice, I cut out a corset, added some lace top and bottom and shaped it, well she does look rather voluptuous!

I know this image is on the IndigoBlu  sewing plate, and she is an advert for corsets........but whenever I see her I always think of Mae West and her famous saying " Come up and See Me Sometime"  - hence my sentiment on the bottom attached with jump rings (hate these)
I bought some Metal Foil tape and this is my first attempt with the flowers and swirl, not too bad. (I hope you're not thinking - who's she kidding)
I used Eggplant AI and they do match in with the colours on the tag, but were a nightmare to photograph.
The silver ribbon was dyed with Eggplant AI.

Well, that's my 'Anything Goes' -  the rest of my teamies have plenty of inspiration for you, so please pop over and  also meet out 2 new Guest Designers, Michelle and  Birgit.  This month we are sponsored by

I think you've done a wonderful job with this tag - from the lovely inking to the beautiful image. It's so clever to use lace the way you've done with her corset.

Hello Avril, fancy meeting you here!! This tag is gorgeous but then I'm bound to like it because it has all the things I love: gorgeous stamping, stunning inky background, wonderful metal flowers and the little hanging sentiment at the bottom. Really love how you've made the most of her curves and the lace is a wonderful finishing touch. Texture and colours work so well together too. Can you tell I like it??
Thanks for joining in with the ABAC challenge Avril and I hope you'll share your lovely work with us again.
