Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens
Happy Sunday and one hour less day!!! Hope you got some rest because I guess we will need it in the morning. Thankfully it doesn't take long for my internal clock to readjust.
I have a tag to show you this afternoon, I made it last night and had to wait on some better light to take the picture, I don't know about you but I struggle with something this small. I need one of those flower frogs everyone uses for this. At Joan's Gardens she has a tag challenge where you create a tag, anything goes and then starting tonight (yes I am getting it in late) everyone will start voting for their favorite.
There was a few steps to this but I really like how it turned out. I mounted a book page to a piece of Kraft card stock and cut it into a tag shape, which I then used Tim Holtz distress inks and water to age. My image is by Stampin' Up " Happiness Shared"...I stamped 3 times cutting parts of the flowers and leaves, so that I could layer the flower. I also cut a portion of the image before running it through the big shot with my oval die. The lace and ribbon is from my scrap stash and the buttons are GinaK. Hope you like it...I left the back open so that I can write a note to someone. Enjoy the rest of your day and see you tomorrow with Paper Cupcakes.
