Tag...You're It!

It's been a while, but I had a bit of time up my sleeve today (I know!!!   I really should be catching up on housework, or on some sleep, but I just had to play LOL) so I decided to join in with the great "Tag" challenge for this week over at Simon Says Stamp and Show" challenge blog...Did you know that they offer a $50 gift voucher to the winning entry?    What better incentive than more toys to play with : )  And there's always plenty of gorgeous samples made by the DT to get the inspiration flowing...
I was finishing off some ATCs so I had my white embossing powder out and decided to use that as my starting point.      I began by stamping my images with Versamark ink, and embossing them with white embossing powder.    I then rubbed various Marvy and Distress inks onto the tag, adding the sentiment (which was embossed onto vellum) and using my sewing machine to add a border.     I completed the tag by adding some red ribbon, some sparkly threads and a red and white button...and here are some photos:





I've used the following stamps:
Tim Holtz "Urban Chic" set
Darkroom Door "Wildflowers Vol.1" set

I hope you are enjoying the weekend wherever you happen to be at the moment...

Hello! I think your tag is just lovely. Love the vibrant colors you used in your background. And the white embossed design is so striking set against such a vibrant background. Thanks so much for deciding to leave the housework behind for a little bit and share your tag with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show! <3 Candy
