Tag Tuesday ~ The Chair

This is my first entry for a challenge called "Tag Tuesday"......for this challenge you had to use a chair......luckily I remembered I had bought this bag of unmounted stamps last year at a garage sale.....I had no idea of what they were until I bought some EZ Mount and mounted them...I must say there are some rather strange stamps in the lot.......but in the mix was this "chair"...perfect......I cut my tag on my Cricut and then sponged 4 colors of TH distressed inks to make a "beach" scene.....the lace on the edge was white....I colored with more of the TH distressed inks to make it the color I wanted...the little star fish are from a punch that I probably would of never purchased, except I found it in a clearance bin for $1..........a simple tag.....but a fun one for a gift......now this is last weeks Tag Tuesday challenge, so there will be a new one posted tomorrow...will be fun and interesting to see whats next!

Edited to add:  I added a fourth star fish to the top of the lace...looks more "finished".....and the chair was to be the focal point...not the person in it...so just look at the chair...NOT the bathing beauty in it...LOL!!
