Two Challenges

It seems I'm back to some of the blog challenges!

First, Kard Krazy's Tag Tuesday - this week's theme is "Front and Back". 

Here's the front of my tag:


All the stamps used on this tag are by Artistic Outpost, "The Outpost" and "A lovely day".
Tag was sprayed with Glimmer Mist (sunflower and oriental poppy) and stamped with Distress inks (spiced marmalade, barn door, mustard seed, fired brick) and Stazon (timber brown). The punched out maple leaves were stamped with the tree, using Distress inks.

This is the back:


It was fun to work on both sides of the tag, and I still am not sure which side I like better.
I think that tree looks really good.

On to Tuesday Taggers, theme "Taste of the Orient". I decided to make a Chinese card:


If you go to Kard Krazy and Tuesday Taggers you can see way more fantastic pieces of art.

Great tags, Carola. I love your two sided wraparound tag that was entered in Louise's TTuesday challenge. Nice tree stamp. And your Chinese tag is beautiful.

Beautiful! Love the outpost on the first tag with the gorgeous colors in the background. (Why didn't I think of that!) The second tag is lovely too with the charms.
