Under The Sea

Under the sea is the challenge for Tag Tuesday this week ~ for my tag I used a piece of Cordinations that I ran thru my Bug and then sanded it....I added a piece of torn sandpaper to the bottom, a MS anchor punch my hubby bought me for Xmas one year, stamped a sea turtle with a $1 stamp (you know the ones...I have tons of them but never use them) I added a glitter pen to him for sparkle, though it doesn't show up in the pic....then I added a piece of vintage shell jewelry at the bottom......I now have a cute summer tag for a gift...I am getting quite a collection of tags!

I went to Joan's Gardens today and made a haul of goodies...will show some of it later...now wish I would of bought more!

Diane, this is so cute and so creative. I love the turtle, but the antique "embellishment" is just wonderful.

Torn sand paper, what a great idea! I love the "bubbly" background you've achieved, very effective♥
