Four Bathing Beauties


This is a tag made for the current Tag You're It! challenge on the theme of numbers. The stamp of the bathing beauties is by The Queen's Dresser Drawers and the 'squares' at the top and bottom were created by stamping Tim Holtz's scratches horizontally, and then again vertically. I got the idea for this from Hermine Koster in her new book Hermine's Choice. I love her work, she is a real inspiration! The number 4 is grungeboard which I have painted with acrylic paint and then added crackle accents.
