 Hello everyone,

A new challenge just popped up over at Tag Tuesday and I try to play along each fortnight, I love to make tags and they sell really well at my son's garage shop. quick to make and fun.

The theme this fortnight is, a form of transport...not hard at all..

and it is not hard because I have the new..
 Stamperia Ephemera packs, whoop whoop..for once I got in early..
These are called ..Songs of the Sea..

And here are a few I wanted to use, although I didn't really want to open the packet, 
that was really hard...the background was from my collection of backgrounds I made on Background making day..😂

So I plopped a few down to get the feel..
book, boat, coins and starfish, in that order, for layering,
 then added.. the bottle and

This fabulous anchor, in the other set this anchor is thick and heavy..
then I added some string and glued it all down.

had a little play with stamping onto glitter card stock, it works and looks lovely, although, even with the blackest of inks it is quite pale...

There's my tag all finished with the tag sticking out..
and a scattering of coins from the other pack and glass beads for bubbles..

and the final photo, with the tag laying on top..
"The Voice of the sea speaks to the soul"

and there we go, done..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

You did a fabulous job layering all your new goodies. The background worked great for your theme, neat how you added the string too!

It is hard to open precious new stuff, right? Iʻm very proud of you for following through and what a gorgeous card you have created.
