Tag tuesday - backgrounds

Backgrounds is the theme for this week at Tag Tuesday which Pam is hosting. Thanks Pam.




I love distressed backgrounds with tone on tone stamping, just to give that background emphasis. I used other colors here to stamp some flowers, but its still a one layer background, without any embellishments.

If I would have to finish the tag I would probably add a sentiment and could even add an small image of some sort. I agree with Pam that it is a shame to cover up backgrounds with too many embellishments.

  1. Your tone on tone background is beautiful, Jacqueline. The addition of the stamps and varied colors makes it complete and ready to use, I think. Wonderful bunch of stamps and inks.

  7. Totally "Jacqueline-elegant"! Not only is the layering of images just perfect, but inking the edges of the tag is a beautiful final step!
