I was SO excited when Loll first asked me, that I started making tags left and right! And of course, being my own worst critic, I kept telling myself I could do better, so I kept making more tags! I'll share some of those with you in the gallery later next week, but the one I chose for today ended up being one of the more simple ones and I just really like the way it turned out!
Next I die cut a piece of TH Woodgrain cardstock (thanks Bonnie!) with a Gina Marie Designs Birch Tree die and then layered that over my watercoloured piece and die cut together the tag shape using PTI's Basic Bookmark #2. I love the dimension the Woodgrain cs gives to the tag shape!
Next came the fun of decorating the tag and I used a couple more Gina Marie Designs dies for the tree and deer. The tree was cut from Pinefeather cs and then embossed in copper. The deer was cut from kraft cs and then sponged with Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress Inks. I added a little tag to my dyed seam binding ribbon using PTI's Tiny Tags and stamped the sentiment from Tag It's #9 stamp set (also PTI). The little pine bough branches on the tag are from the Holiday Greens set that I used for the top of the watercoloured tag portion. A little red enamel dot on the tag and some twine
and iridescent sequins finished off my rustic looking tag.
I hope I've inspired you to play along with Loll and the other special GD's...you can see their BEAUTIFUL tags and find the challenge info all right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
