The Mystery House


Linda Cain is back again over on the PaperArtsy blog.  To say she is a favourite of mine would be an understatement, I love how she bases most of her art on tags, probably that's why I'm a fan!!!

So this tag has used some of the techniques Linda has incorporated.  Linda does state in her post that it was a shame to cover most of the background, so I didn't!!

The house looked lost on the tag so I mounted it onto white card and cut it out with a border.

I used various stamps from the Ink and the Dog plates and Urban Snapshots.

Super tag, the background looks stunning and topping the house onto white card really was a great idea.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
