Tag Tuesday Challenge - Postage!

Louise's Tag Challenge for this week is to use a stamp on your tag. I have a large assortment of older cancelled stamps from my Dad's collection, when he was a kid. I decided to use this one from Italy - mainly, because I wanted to use the new stamps I got from Lost Coast Design. They are the ancient Roman women's faces - maybe from Pompeii. I used 3 different faces on this tag. I used a green paper background, stamped the burlap stamp from Oxford Impressions in brown and stamped script from Paperbag Studios in black on the lower left hand corner. I used a piece of handmade paper behind the middle stamp, and stamped the garland border in black, also from LC Designs. Stamped the main face on parchment type paper in purple and bordered with gold leaf. In the upper right hand corner, I ripped a floral piece of vellum, glued it to the corner and attached the leaves and brad.  I bordered the whole tag in gold leaf pen also. The background is greener than the scanned picture of it!
