Bronze, silver or gold ?

The end of another week and it's time for the next challenge at The Stamp Man. We're celebrating the Olympics, which have been fantastic haven't they ! So, for this challenge we'd like to see bronze, silver or gold, or all 3 if you want on your project !

I started by cutting a tag using theTim Holtz tag die and then I blended Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves DI over it. I stamped the flourish using the Tim Holtz Fabulous Flourishes stamp, the text is from the French Marketplace set and then I used the Haberdashery set for the dress form.

I stuck some Ranger Metal foil onto a piece of Grunge Paper and die cut the heart using a Sizzix die. I embossed it using the Victoria EF and then used Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and pleated it all around the edge. The swirl is made using the Elegant Flourishes die and I've blended DI over it. I then spritzed the whole tag using Perfect Pearls Mist Biscotti. The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Odds & Ends stamp set.

I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge, and if you're in the UK let's hope the sun carries on shining through the week end !
