Postage stamp tag

Haven't done a tag for Tag Tuesday for a while. I did make the decision to stop making so many tags even though they are of my favourite things to do as I never do anything with them,they sit gathering dust on the dresser and eventually end up stuffed in a box somewhere out of sight.   The challenge this week was to use a real postage stamp and for your tag to be about it, well our stamps these days are pretty boring but I knew straight away I would use Artistic Outpost stamps for my collage background.The tag was very quick to make but I did spend a lot of time going through a large box of used stamps that mainly came from my Dad, there are some very old stamps in there ,including an EdwardV111  (the one who abdicated) and lots of very pretty worldwide stamps but i don't like to use them (one may be worth as much as a Penny Black postage stamp - in my dreams LOL)

  3. This is delightful!

    I used to wonder what to do with the tags as well. Now I use a lot of them on cards I make and send them to folks. All I have to do is create a background on the card for them!
