Tag You're It' at Crafty Individual




Hello and thanks for visiting,  I've actually managed a little play time this week and made a tag to join in the challenge at Crafty Individual which is 'Tag You're It'.  I've made a double tag, although that wasn't   my     original intention, as  I wanted to use some 'pansy' card that I'd made earlier in the year -(this technique was in Craft Stamper magazine last year) - but the card was only 4 x 6" as I'd used the Cuttlebug as the press. (I do wish colours in photos wouldn't 'change' - the picture of the pansy tag looks very blue. although its not. )     


                                                        
I made a larger tag for the base, which was clear embossed with CI 182 Swirl.  I used Bundled Sage, Iced Spruce and Milled Lavender DIs to colour this, before Stamping Dream a little Dream, which was a little freebie with an order.  My main fairy image was stamped onto white cardstock and coloured.  I also stamped the image onto vellum and used an embossing ball tool to emboss the back of the image around the swirls, flowers and her wings, I fussy cut some of the black background away before attaching this over the image.  The sentiment was stamped in Iced Spruce and heat embossed with clear powder.

I am also entering this at:

Hope you have a great weekend whatever you're doing.
