Make a Tag




Having seen the beautiful tag that Meggymay posted I checked out the challenge called Fashionable Stamping and the DT have made some amazing tags! I  have only ever used tags for sentiments on cards and not as a creation in it's own right. I enjoyed making the ATC's so a tag is just a bit bigger, right?
Firstly I coloured the tag with Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet and then spritzed a flourish stamp from Creative Expressions with water and stamped randomly across the tag before blotting with tissue. I then used the same stamp and inked with the same inks for more definition. The glamorous lady  is stamped with SU Pretty in Pink and then again in Wild Wasabi and the hat cut out and decoupaged with foam pads. I added pearls and feathers and some glitter. The bag and fan are old stamps from a vintage cd set. The lace strip at the bottom is an old one from Glenda Waterworth and I used my Xyron to print the sentiment and martini glass. Leaves were stamped and added to a fabric flower. The tassel is attached with a fabric polka dot brad.
Sorry about the poor photo quality :(
Love to read your comments so please let me know you passed by:)

Great tag - you're really getting into working small although as youi say a tag is a bit larger than an ATC so must be a bit easier to work on.
