Love is in the air

Hi there, ooooh i'm in love! I've got some gorgeous new LaBlanche stamps and they are fab-u-lous, they are so detailed and stamp sooooo beautifully, I'm totally in love with them lol. Today I'm sharing a tag I made using 'Woman with flowers'  

I've used this lovely lady for my tag for this weeks challenge at Dragon's Dream Tag it on where the theme is Romance. I started off with a kraft tag and stamped my favourite text stamp from Chocolate Baroque Paisley Elephant  themeplate in sepia versafine ink. I then stamped a large swirly border, also from Chocolate Baroque in versamark and embossed with clear EP. Next I added lots of dusty concorde distress ink . I stamped the beautiful La Blanche Lady with sepia versafine and again distressed with more dusty concorde ink. I tore the lady's face out and attached it too the tag, adding some cream lace and purple velvet ribbon. The flower is cut out from the same LaBlanche stamp,with the addition of a couple of paper flowers. To finish off i've added some faux pearls and some purple braid.

I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps: Ribbon and lace
Crafty Emma's : Roses and ribbon
Fabulous Fridays: embossing
Gingerloft: Lace, fabric or felt
One Stop Craft: ribbon and lace
Polka Doodles: swirls and pearls
Scrappy Frogs Challenge: use kraft cardstock
