Read in order to Live

This month at Gingersnap Creations it's "Tell it like it is" with a focus on faux techniques. This week's challenge is GC138: Masking Tape. The month is being sponsored by Rouge Redhead Designs. They have such wonderful stamps, as you will see. If you have a moment , please check them out. Come play with us at Gingersnaps Creation, there's lots to see  from the Design Team  and you might even win a prize! As you know, I'm always reading and that was my inspiration today Right now I'm reading  "Wolf Hall'.  Just started so, I  haven't gotten my teeth into it yet. (get it wolf ...teeth?) LOL.

So this dimensional  tag uses masking tape, can you see it? Well, it's the pretty blue ruffle!  I wanted to do something different, so I made up with is tag template using some patterned paper and stamped the sentiment " Read in order to Live." on both side edges. The lady image is from  a Retro Cafe Art collage sheet called Pretty Women. The books and the sentiment are from the Relish Reading RougeRedhead Designs RRD001 sheet.  After stamping the books, I fussy cut them out and water colored them to match my piece. The bling on the tape and on the woman's wrap is actually chunky sparkle nail polish my daughter left behind. Hope she won't mind me using it for art projects.  Some tiny rhinestones and silver Stickles add the additional needed shine. A crystal bead hanger and my reading beauty was all set..

Hope you will get to escape with a good book this week.
yours truly, gerri
