Just because...

I love this face stamp from Inkylicious, and I love making tags and this stamp is going to get a lot of use! Here I've smooched the tag in a distress mixture of Weathered Wood and Worn Lipstick then sprayed with Perfect pearls. The stamp has a lovely swirl on one side which I used separately at the top then the face part of the stamp at the bottom using grey ink. The peace stamp is part of a Lost Coast Designs stamp. I then used some mop up kitchen roll to make torn leaves around the edge(phaffing about as hubby puts it)
 Some ribbons and layered flowers from my little collection that I have up here just finished it off.
Earlier in the week Hels Sunday Stamper challenge was about faces, I hope I'm not too late with this but we went off to the Dickensian Festival in Ulverston today and stayed longer than we intended - an event well worth attending!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx

So beautiful, Chris... the delicate grey stamping of the face looks ethereally lovely against the delicate of the inky background; and the paper towel is a perfect frame. I absolutely love it!

Dreamy and beautiful Chris. I love that stamp (which I have) and what you have done with it is not pearshaped at all!! Great idea with the towels too. I haven't used that one for ages and I think you've done the technique far more justice than I ever did!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

The torn leaves effect seems quite original and I love your colours on this tag.
