Tag...you're it!



What an exhaustive week  the lead up to Easter was.... and for me, it hasn't finished.... but... this week at For Fun Challenges... we are having  a TAG Challenge! We would love to see your creations containing tags, or Tags that you have created!


I created a Gift Tag, using the Cirque image from our super sponsor The Paper Shelter....

Ingredients: Metallic Gold Cardstock, white cardstock; Glitter Pens, Glaze Pens; Lace; Organza/Satin Gold and Cream Ribbon; Rhinestones; Pearls...

After a daughter/liquid accident... I had to remake the creation.. the layout is essentially the same though. I used the individual coloured image and the coloured background. I printed them with the image at full colour, and the background at less intensity, so that she seemed to stand out.

I then added extra colour with glitter pens to her clothing, and glaze pen to her shoes and the feather/leaf in her hat. I used rhinestones to create a necklace, and added them to her shoes as well, with pearls on her baton, and her hat...

I trimmed out the printed image, and added a lace border. After sealing that, I added it to a metallic gold card,  then finished off with an organza satin/gold ribbon, in which I tied a bow, and left a large loop to add it to a pressie!

I hope that you'll enjoy the show of creations from our design team this week (they are a fabulous team!).... you'll find them at our blog... and of course we'd love to see your creations too, so please play along in our challenge! Thanks for peepin'!
