I've made a tag!

I haven't made many tags before, but I had so much fun making this one, with inks and mists and embossing powders! And I'm quite proud of having made a tag - at last! It's not my usual style or choice of colors. I started out spraying this the tag with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, color Peach Delight. Then I used a Panduro stamp with script and Old Paper Distress Embossing Powder. I stamped three times using the same swirl stamp and heat embossed with Zing Apricot embossing powder. For the sentiment, made with a Dylusions stamp, I used Zing Purple. I needed to add something white and yellow, so I decided to add the three flowers. To fill out the space I used a metal butterfly and some purple punched ones.

This tag is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #19 Photo
2) Flutterby Wednesdays - #239 Open
3) Crafty Creations - #221 Something old, something new
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Glad you step outside of your comfort zone to create this incredibly awesome tag! Great work


Marina said...

I love your tag, Pia. Great layered stamping behind your flowers and butterfly. What I like about tags is, they are relatively small and, unlike cards, not really meant to be given to people. Therefore they are great for experimenting with different styles and techniques and, if you don't like how it turns out, chuck it. You've made a beautiful one here. Marina

Hello Pia, yet another fab creation from you! You've used great techniques to make this very pretty tag. A tag is a small canvas to work on and you've put a lot into it but your tag is still really balanced and pleasing to the eye - great job! You should definitely make more tags I think!
So nice to see you at Inkspirational again, please come back soon! Ruth x

I don't usually make tags, either, but I LOVE this one! Like a mini art journal page! The quote is amazing! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational! :) PS: Pinning this for future reference for my art journal! :)
