Liberty Tilda, Freedom Background, Eagle and Scroll



Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend, here in the UK we've been basking in hot sun, a bit too hot for me really.

I have a tag to show today with the sweet new Liberty Tilda (not actually sure of the names as yet), the Freedom Background (I believe this name is correct), the eagle and the scroll. I'm sure my friends in the USA are going to love this set too :). 

Tilda is coloured with a mixture of distress markers and water colour markers as is the eagle. I've used the Freedom background stamp in three ways, firstly using it to make an acrylic paint resist background. I also used a Tim Holtz stamp right at the top of the tag. The second way of using it was to add faded jeans and festive berries distress ink randomly around the stamp and then stamping onto the die cut Tilda's Lace and onto the scroll which I'd stamped and then cut out and for the third way I stamped again with the same inks onto some seam binding ribbon. 

I'm entering my tag into the Papertake Weekly Challenge theme of true colours which is a patriotic theme or to use the colours red, white and blue.

Thanks as always for your comments, they're always appreciated.
