Second look on the 2nd

I think I may just get in here for the 2nd if I am quick!!
I have chosen this post from May 2014 - sadly Dragons Dream is no more - it was one of my favourite challenges.
Other things don't seem to change much - it seems I was still not home much!!
I've missed taking part in some challenges of late, we were away of course! That said, even when we were home we were busy with grandchildren, appointments, parties and cinema trips so could only get in my crafty space on a few occasions!
I love the Dragon's Dream Tag It On challenges and until now haven't had time to play along!
The challenge this time for challenge TIO 165 is B and a Flower set by Elizabeth(her son Tom's idea, and I loved the inspiration from the design team!)
So here is my tag
The beautiful girl has a broken heart because her beau has b......d off(that's buzzed of course!)so of course she's feeling blue!
I used some packaging for my tag and as I tore it there were some interesting bits still clinging so they were left on. Everything was covered with a watered down gesso. I then inked through a couple of stencils(yes, I did use the new one!) The heart was one left over from the wedding invitations(there's a tale to tell but not this time!)- broken by scissors! The lady is a Lynne Perrella one that had been stamped onto a scrap and then not used and the layers of the flower were also from one of my scrap folders.

The words were on a small scrap leftover from die cutting and just jumped out at me as I was going to reject it(originally from hubby's King Arthur book)The fibres and net are from a box of random bits and pieces that sits at the back of my desk! The buttons(Ooh! another b!)are from my button mug!

I am joining Elizabeth for a Second Look on the 2nd
…and feeling the need for leaving some corrugated card out on my desk for tomorrow!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I finally have a few minutes to drop in and say hello. Oh how time does get away from me! I hope all your travels are going well, hopefully I will catch a post here today with a few pics.

What a beautiful tag! The corrugated background is fantastic, excellent way to add texture. The whitewash with the touches of blue and brown creates a wonderful vintage feel, so perfect for you heart-broken lady image! Love your story too. lol.
