Tag Tuesday - a tag on a tag

This is my tag for Tag Tuesday, actually a tag on a tag. My main tag features an image that is a TAP transfer (Transfer Artist Paper by Lesley Riley) onto muslin that is then sewn onto the cardstock tag stamped with a row of a damask pattern (Memory Box). This is my first experiment with TAP and it's so easy to do! It's an inkjet printable surface that you then iron onto your receiving surface. I was working with this technique for a fabric project and had this transfer left over to be used elsewhere. I even found that I could add color to the flowers of the transferred image with colored pencils. My little tag is a stamp from Stampin' Up.

I love Lesley Riley and I have been lucky enough to attend several of her classes....before she was so well known.
The was a period of time where I was So addicted to TAP and Lutrador....now I feel the urge to play with it again.
