Tag Tuesday Challenge - Valentines!

Louise's Tag Challenge for this week is to make a Valentine Tag!
I stamped part of a Magenta tag on dressmaking paper, ripped it and glued it to a  wooden heart that had been sprayed with glimmer mists. I added some papers to it and bordered it with Krylon Gold pen. I cut out a bigger heart, covered it with paper, stamped stars on it, embossed the flourish in gold and glued on a piece of paper.  I made an arrow out of the inside of a Starbucks sleeve, glued it to the heart and glued the wooden heart over it. Punched a hole in the top and added ribbons.

Tag Tuesday Challenge - Winter!

I did give a little groan when I saw the challenge topic this week at Louise's Tag Challenge! Even though I live in a snowy ski town, I just couldn't bear to do anything with snowmen, snowflakes etc. I have put all my Christmas stuff away, and was not going to go down in the garage to dig some of it out. So I decided to create something with birds and evergreens, a bit cheerier for me and hopeful.  Here it is:

I stamped an evergreen stamp by Delta in 2 different color greens on the tag. I took a small piece of small bubble wrap, dipped it in gesso, whipped it off, and stamped it on to look like snow. I stamped the bird from Invoke on blue scrapbook paper, cut out, colored in, added gold and bronze paint and glued on. Cut out a bird from an Oxford Impressions sheet and glued it on. I stamped the music stanza in sepia. It is from the same Invoke set with birds. Brushed sepia ink on the edges and more gesso. Stuck 3 feathers through the hole and taped in back. Winter in Park City!

Tag Tuesday Challenge - Fabric!

This week at Louise's Tag Challenge is the use of fabric on your tag. I wish she would do this theme for a few weeks running!  I had a ton of fun making it. It is very vibrant and interesting in person.
I completely covered a tag with a piece of tea dyed muslin. I painted a whole bunch of deli papers last week, and kept the strips of paper I cut from them when I was trimming them down. So I glued 5 different pieces across the tag. I stamped a French Script stamp from Paperbag Studios. I stamped Torso Collage, a stamp from Acey Deucy on polka dotted vellum. I outlined it in copper Krylon pen and cut it into 3 pieces. I glued a piece of  tea dyed lace on the bottom and "fringed" it. I glued the stamp pieces down and added 3 black beads on the bottom. The flower is punched from 3 of the painted papers, with a tissue paper flower on top and a hook.
Enjoy and thank you for your comments. They are all appreciated.

Tag Tuesday Challenge- Mosaic

I had alot of fun making this tag for this weeks challenge at Louise's Blog.  I took a square punch and punched out a bunch of different green papers. I glued them on the paper, cutting when necessary and filling in a spot, but leaving space between them like a true mosaic. For the "grout" I used a gold Polymark paint. I stamped Happiness on mulberry paper, ripped, distressed and glued to tag. I cut out the bird and glued on also. Raffia on the bottom, tissue paper and cork Prima flowers layered on top and 3 black beads on the side!!  We have more than our share of snow here, so I think this was my Ode to Spring!
