Gingersnap Creations Challenge: Quotes

A new challenge has started on the Gingersnap Creations Blog today and the theme is Quotes.

I chose to quote some lines from the Rolling Stones song "Ruby Tuesday". I'm not much of a Stones fan to be honest, but I really love the Melanie version of this song, and listened to it on repeat while I worked on this :) (You can hear it here if you're interested).

The text around the edge of the tag and the notepaper were computer generated (the notepaper having been stamped first with a TH stamp and then scanned into the computer). "Ruby" is one of my favourite stamps in my collection, a PaperArtsy image that I come back to time and again. She was stamped with a black Memento ink pad then coloured with Promarkers. The background was Promarker'd, distress inked and stamped with a TH scratches stamp. The notepaper was stamped with TH's small coffee cups and my handy fingerprint "stamp" :)

Check out the Gingersnap Creations blog to see the fun ways in which the other Design Team members have interpreted the theme! Go on, you know you want to! :)

Wow Dan! I really love your tag. I love the quote and words around the edge. I am a fan of the Rolling Stones - not particularly the song but this has made it more meaningful. TFS. ~Glen~

That's lovely Dan. I wish I had a fingerprint stamp that only worked when I wanted it to. At the moment I will just have to put up with strategically placing things to cover it up!

I'd forgotten all about the Melanie version- used to play that back in the 80's in student digs, brilliant- brought back a few memories!
Love the tag too...nice approach using the lyrics in that way.
