TAG - C as in ...

Calligraphy

Hi and hello to everyone out there.
Suzanne here again, sharing a TAG with you

ingredients
stamps
ink bottle CP Q474
ink splatter CP E182
thinking N3703NS 
large pen nibs from PLATESW160 hardware findings 2 

others
distress ink pads 
Tim Holtz pen nib
black feather
script stencil from crafter's workshop
some wire
 The background is sprayed with some shimmery orange and colorwash butterscotch through a script stencil. The edges were sponged with distress inks vintage photo and walnut stain. I wrote the word myself and hope that it looks a bit like calligraphy LOL - the paper was distressed with vintage photo too.
The woman (non sequitur stamps) was stamped separately and colored with watercolor pencils and distress inks. The ink well and the blots are by cherry pie (stamped separately and cut out), the pen nibs from de stempelwinkel - colored with DI iced spruce and a bit of cosmic shimmer silver, then sealed and cut out as well. Finally a feather was glued to a TH metal pen nib and wrapped to it with black twine.

I'm entering this TAG into the DragonsDream challenge #162: the letter C and metal


I hope you like it a bit and wish you a good week.
Thanks so much for stopping by ...

Hugs, Suzanne xxx

A beautiful tag. I think your 'calligraphy' is beautifully written and I love the image of the lady. She looks as if she is really agonizing over what she is going to write next! Thanks for dreaming with the Dragons! Julie Ann xx
