K is for Key

This is my tag for the letter K in the Chocolate Baroque alphatags swap.  For the background I crumpled some Tim Holts tissue wrap (composer design) and adhered it to the tag with glue'n'seal, then rubbed some rock candy distress stickles over.  The flower was made from the same tissue.  The stamp for the key came from the Key to My Dreams set by Chocolate Baroque, embossed with silver WOW powder and cut out.  The distressed metallic 'lace' was cut using a Tim Holtz border die and the letter was a plain chipboard one inked and embossed.  Three tags to complete for next month so having various thoughts and ideas of what to do for L, M and N and I will have fun trying out the ideas.

Sunshine two days running has to be good and I managed the mammoth task of mowing the meadows (aka lawns) yesterday but it was such hard work due to not being able to use the mower for such a long time because of the rainy days which of course made the grass and weeds grow at an alarming rate.  Enjoy your weekend and hope the sun is shining where you are too.


  1. ANother lovely tag Val and cant believe you are down to K already....this would also make a lovely card topper


  2. Gorgeously stylish with the monochrom & the key combined with music. Our meadsows (lawns) are on a slope & the Woodland was knee deep....... Well done....I can't even get the mower moving!
