  12. Wow, what an amazing piece of art you have created. I have to say my mouth is hanging open here. I love everything about it - would adore having it hanging on my wall! I've been holding out on getting that Core'dinations paper, but you have definitely enabled me. So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Hope to see you back with us again next week!

  13. Nancy! This is spectacular! Talk about the perfect combination of gorgeous elements and details. The chipped enamel frame is just beautiful, and the image stamped on the text looks great-- it's like we're seeing the thoughts running through her head. The embossed Core'dinations looks fab, and the little hinge is such a cool touch. Great use of the tinted fragment, too. Seriously, this is just wonderful, and you should show it off every chance you get!

  14. I really love this! I can't stopping looking at it. All of your tags are really beautiful.--Thanks for sharing your art with us.-Shawn

  15. This is lovely I like the domino technique it's so effective

    Love Dawn xx

  16. You are SO talented! This came out awesome!

  17. Hello Nancy,

    a real nice project ! I love how you stamped the face on the domino and layered it on top of the stamp. The colors you use on the domino are really soft but also colorful and takes your attention when you look a the tag.

    The chipped enamel pieces are gorgeous too . The more i see this technique the more I like it and I wished I had more metal stuff to alter in this technique !

    did you make the metal frame yourself ? Embossing on metal and then doing the technique and then cutting out the center to make a frame yourself ?

    greetings from belgium

  18. OH MY....your project is just STUNNING!!!
    thanks bunches for playing along with the Design Teamies and Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!!

  19. Love the colours and the layers on your tag, and the chipped enamel.


  20. Nancy, this is BEAUTIFUL! I love the effect the image on the domino lends to the whole piece - VERY cool!!
