For the Love of Tags!


Hello friends!  Marie here with my new project for you!
I love tags!   In my opinion, one can never have too many tags!
Today I will share a tag I created with paper from Paper Temptress and a featured image from
Sherri Baldy's new April release!

The digital image is
Big Eye Big Head Dolls image 577
I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card - I love this for my Copic coloring.
It is super smooth and really makes blending a breeze.
The tag base was cut from Grape Jelly Pop Tones.  
I darkened the cardstock to coordinate with my image using Memento Grape Jelly Dye  Ink.
This provided a rich dark color.   I created faux stitching with my Signo Opaque White Pen.
I created the flower using X-Press It Blending Cardstock.
The smooth texture makes it easy to sponge.
My die was Cherry Lynn Black Eyed Susan Strip.
It is amazing how different the flower looks depending on what color you select!
I used Tim Holtz  Dusty Concord Distress ink.
I heavily sponged the center and tips of each petal.
I molded the flower with my McGill molding tools and molding  pad.
A light coat of  Ranger Glossy Accents was applied to the flower after assembly.
The leaf was cut from my stash (love using up my leftovers!)
I sponged the leaves and stem using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
This is my finished tag.  I hope you enjoy tags as much as I do!
I love embellish presents and gift bags with colorful tags!
Have a great day and take some time to be crafty!
