Back to Black...

Great idea of Hels Sheridan to have a Sunday Stamper tribute to Amy Winehouse. This is my entry for that and for tag it on .The Graphic 45 curtain call papers and my non sequiteur Art Doll stamps were perfect for this. I started with two giant cream tags, one larger than the other. The base tag was inked and embossed with distress inks and clear embossing powder, Then stamped  creative expressions miniswirls and clear embossed them. I added a strip of black velvet ribbon and the sentiment along the bottom from creative expressions Vintage child stamp set [from which I also used the musical symbols and Saxaphone]. The 'back to black' and 'fallen angel' wording was computer generated onto safmat.

The Angel wings and roses were digital images from itkupilli. I resized them in serif craft artist, printed them on safmat and stuck them onto the graphic 45 patterned papers. Yumm . Used pinflair to give the wings dimension. The top tag was inked with old paper distress ink and stamped with a paperartsy script stamp. Then collaged and stamped and added a ragged black ribbon to top it off.

Rebel in peace Amy.
