January Beautiful World Tour

Hello everyone!  And welcome to chilly Vancouver, Canada!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!  I can't believe that 2012 has come and gone and now, it is time for the January Beautiful World Tour!

If you have arrived from Iwona's Blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

One lucky winner is chosen from the comments each month to WIN their choice of Flourishes stamp set.  All you need to do is follow the hop and leave comments along the way.  You do not need to comment on every stop, however, the more you comment on, the bigger your chance of winning!

This month, Meredith has challenged all of us girls to create a tag.

Here is what I created:
Since it was my dad's 58th birthday yesterday, I decided to make a masculine tag which would work equally well for NYE as it would for his birthday.  I tried to keep it simple and elegant.  I used the Flourishes Moments In Time Stamp Set stamping the clock face in Versafine Black Onyx ink and cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Circles.  I sponged the image with ink, using the die as a stencil before mounting it, with foam tape, on a piece of black cardstock which had been cut-out using the Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die Set.   I then stamped the sentiment, aslo from Moments In Time, in the same black in and cut it out using the other die from the Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die Set also sponging it with ink and using the die as a stencil.  I then doubled up some foam tape and mounted the sentiment on top of the bottom portion of the main image.  To finish it all off, I added a few clear rhinestones and attached the tag using a silver mesh ribbon.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your stop here in, you're off to visit...

Happy Stamping!
