By the Sea Tag

I wanted to share a tag I made for Tag Tuesday this week, where the theme is "Seaside".  In the vintage photo I used, this elegant lady was sitting on a rock at at the beach, but I wanted to give her something more exotic to sit on, so I stamped a lovely shell for her.  The tag background was made from blue patterned paper, and has a border-type stamp near the top.  I found some lacy vintage gold ribbon to put behind her to give the appearance of waves, and gave her a little sparkle on her umbrella with some stickles.  There is a spritz of Smooch Spritz Spray on the shell area to give it a little more dimension.  I think she is dreaming about swimming in the turquoise blue water of the Caribbean (oh no, wait, that is me dreaming about that!).

Lots of blogs are having tag challenges, so she is going to get around!  Check them out, there are some great tags to see.
