Tag Tuesday Challenge #42 -- Arches


Welcome to Tag Tuesday!
Today's challenge is to make a tag that includes an arch.   You can stamp an arch or create an arch or make your whole tag an arch.   Interpret the theme any way you'd like.
Leave a comment here with your link when you're done so we can all come and see your tag.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can't tell from the photo, but my arch is popped out and the picture inside the arch is set back.  The arch stamp is from Invoke Arts and was black embossed.   I also included a metal embellishment which we had made on the cruise.  If you click on the picture and look closely you'll see what this man is remembering.  The background stamp on my tag is from Lost Coast Designs.

ETA:  The tag in the sampler labeled Michelle was actually created by Sharon.  Sorry about that, Sharon!

Gorgeous tag! Now to see if I can really get one done myself...lol. Arches is something I've never really done, should be interesting.

When I first saw your tag, I was certain the arch was metal, Louise! It's a fabulous tag!

My arched tag is made of parts originally intended for something else. Only the arch design was new today. Thanks again for a great challenge, Louise.

You could have fooled me on the arch being a stamp and not metal! I really like the way you put the surprise in the keyhole! Beautiful tag Louise! You can find my tag on my blog here:

I loved working on this challenge! Making an Arch always reminds me of the Olde World Era of knights in shining armour and damsels in distress!
