Tag Tuesday Challenge -- Front & Back

Well, I'm thinking with the two weeks we had since the last Tag Tuesday post, everyone should be really ready for a challenge!  I hope so, because I've got one for you this week.
Inspired by one of the new stamps I acquired on our visit to Stampland (see post below), I tried stamping half of a stamp on the front of the tag -- and then continuing with the other half of the stamp on the back of the tag.   In my case, it was a two-fold process because the stamp I used of the woman painting came with a blank canvas.  I had to then insert another image (the two girls) and carry that over to the back of the tag, too.
I had quite a lot of fun creating this tag and am pleased with the way it turned out.






So this week's challenge is to include something on the front of your tag that runs over to the back of it.  It doesn't have to be stamping -- it just needs to go beyond the front to the back of the tag.

Hi, Louise, I am here after following JeanFB's link of here beautiful snowball tag. I also have your artist stamp and I love how you used it for this front and back. Great colors. And how cool to see the pics of your visit to Stampland. Getting to meet the owners must have been delightful. It reminded me I had a 'wish' list from there which has now been fulfilled!

I've linked my tag to the challenge, it was fun to do.

Helen said...

Not had a good week ( as you will see) but managed to enter, this week!

Such a fun idea, Louise! Your tag looks great!!

OK....I am a NEWBEE and one who has NEVER done a tag so this is going to be a great way to learn. I sold my huge collection of stamps about 5 years ago....probably at least 500. Yes, that was stupid of me and I regret the decision now that I have gotten over my “stamp burnout," but I cannot cry over spilled milk. I will just have to learn without using stamps. Do you all use the little tags or the larger ones. I went to Michaels yesterday. They had 2 sizes so bought both. This is going to be great fun and I really do look forward to giving it a try. Yours is gorgeous, and I love the idea of carrying tie image to the other side of the tag.
