Chocolate Baroque Tag Swap N & O

Published August 22, 2012 by isisimaginings

Happy Wednesday to you.  I have two more tags to show you today, continuing the Chocolate Baroque tag swap that has been running since January.  Sometimes, it has been quite difficult coming up with ideas & my ‘N’ tag is a case in point.   I don’t have a lot of CB stamps, so I have to make do with what I have.  I spent weeks thinking about it & all I came up with was ‘nature’ & when I found the quote by Shakespeare I decided to go ahead.

I left the background very simple, just using Adirondack inks as a resist under distress inks.  I made a background by stamping some of the Texture Fragments stamps onto white cardstock, stamped the butterflies from the Patchwork Butterfly collection on top & heat embossed with gold EP.  I cut them out & attached them to the tag with silicon glue.

This ‘Ophelia’ stamp is the very first stamp I bought from Chocolate Baroque when I discovered them a few years ago.  I stamped her on tissue paper with black Archival & then painted on the reverse with acrylic paints.  I painted white acrylic paint over the colour paints & used that to attach the tissue paper to the tag.


I created the tag background by stamping a texture fragments stamp with Versamark & embossing with white EP.  Then I blended Salty Ocean & Mowed Lawn distress inks over the embossed  tag.  The quote is by Shakespeare – again.  I love Shakespeare!!  The flowers are a Crealies die.



I’d like to leave you with a pic of a section of a little wall-hanging I made for  If you would like to see the entire piece, you will fnd it HERE .



Thanks for looking, until next time,

Love & light
