The quote is from John Milton, which makes me look a lot cleverer than I am (we did read some of his poems when I was in school - he wasn't my favourite. I think my opinion was coloured by his attitude to the women in his life; in fact he was a real MCP!)
Sunday Stampers challenge. I had lots of ideas for shiny things...but none of them included stamping so didn't meet the challenge criteria. Then I remembered the Flitterglu and the Kanban Steampunk stamps and the Problem Was Solved!
The large crowns were cut with Spellbinders dies. The tag is actually greener than it looks in the picture, being coloured with Peeled Paint, Pine Needles and Evergreen Bough DI's - the gilding flakes I used were from Crafy Notions (Variegated Green) and I wanted to pick up the green tints.
Thanks for visiting - I hope you liked the tag.
