Influences of the 20th Century

The Craftroom challenge at the moment is to create a project that is influenced by the 20th Century.

There were so many great events and historic moments between 1900 and 2000 that it was quite hard to settle on something.

I chose to do yet another tag, mainly because I am somewhat time poor these days and I really do find it a good medium to showcase techniques.


I had a new background stamp that came with a magazine and I have been itching to use it.  It was perfect for this tribute to Princess Diana.  I stamped it with Archival and coloured it with a combination of markers, leaving out the distress markers that I would normally use.  I added a scrap of lace, some pearls and the photo.  I used my Brother label maker with clear tape for the text.

Reasonably simple but elegant, I think.
