Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!

Hello friends and welcome to another "Tag It Tuesday" featuring My Creative Time.  I love making and decorating tags.  They're typically a smaller size so they are much easier to decorate.

I used the Chunky Stitched Tag Dies, which is one of my favourite sets and is back in stock!!  While I did make a tag, I used it as a focal point on a card.

I used Strathmore Mixed  Media paper for my project today.  I love this paper because it's bright white, smooth and can handle water.  I die cut a 4 X 4 inches panel and did a simple watercolour wash using Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink.


I embossed the tag die with an embossing folder that has tiny flowers on it.  I thought it would be fun to add a bit of colour to each embossed portion.  I used the same purple ink and added some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink.  I am definitely going to try this with other embossing folders!!!

I added the tag onto the watercolored panel with foam tape. I used the Big Hello Die for the sentiment which is just a beautiful die!  The small "friend" comes from the Fun Notes Stamp and Die Set.  


It needed a bit more of the Peacock Feathers Ink so I die cut a small butterfly with a die from the Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Die Set and loosely watercolored it.


I added the focal panel to a 4.25 X 4.25 inch grey card base and also a bit of sparkle to the large "hello". 

There are many ways to use tags or tag die and this is just one of the way!!  I think this tag would be beautiful on its own.

Thank you so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!!

See you soon...

Laurie
