By now many of you should know that I don't do tags. For some reason the small canvas just freaks me out! But I've been getting a lot of ideas from blog hopping and from magazine scanning...so I opted to try a tag for the Anni-verve-sary Challenge #5~ Anything but a Card challenge.
My inspiration for this tag came from the tag on page 46 of the Sept/Oct 2012 Paper Crafts magazine.
I started with a plain white tag and used the negative from the Little Leaves Sizzlit die and stippled some New Leaf ink over it like a stencil. I used the Elegant Flower Plain Jane by Verve for my blossom. I stamped it on a pretty peach paper in the Howdy Doody pad of the Miss Caroline line by My Mind's Eye. Once I added it with a dimensional, I stamped the sentiment (from the Sunny Days set). It naturally needed some bling and I was happy to find some dyed peach seam binding. I'm not 100% in love with the seam binding, but it was all I could find that I liked or matched.
I have NO idea what I will use this tag on...LOL! That's the biggest problem I have with them! I make them and then they just get stashed! I don't give out a lot of gifts and when I do, I usually DON'T have the right kind of tag for them! LOL!
