Valentine's tags....

This week the Tag You're It! challenge is Love and Romance - well with it being Valentine's day tomorrow what other theme could there be? However you don't have to make a Valentines tag - any interpretation of love and romance is allowed.
This week we have a fantastic giveaway donated by Sugar Nellies stamps - we have 3 of their fabulous stamps for one tagger who will be chosen at random next Friday.
So in celebration of this the design team have used Sugar Nellie stamps for their tag this week, I have in fact made two tags using the wonderful Leanne Ellis stamps;


I think I overdone the pearls on this one a bit!





And this has to be my favourite stamp;




I have to admit to not really being a stamper - I use stamps for sentiments but rarely use images, but there was something very therapeutic about colouring these images, I am a complete beginner with the colouring in thing - I didn't know what materials I should use so I had to experiment quite a bit first. I tried Marvy le plume pens - which I have to say were a bit rubbish actually I thought they were just like kids felt tips! So I abandoned those and used Letraset Promarkers (luckily I won some of these a few years ago and have hardly ever used them but they worked really well) and I just used the tiniest amount of watercolour for the faces.


Why not join in with the challenge this week - it's a fab prize and someone's gotta win it!
I look forward to seeing all your tags!
