We are celebrating our third anniversary over at A Vintage Journey. All Aboard - to see what the Creative Guides have made for the occasion. Simply Click here.
This time around we were challenged to make anything we like. I made a tag in anticipation of Spring with some bright - yet vintage colors. Nothing says spring like the arrival of flowers. Enjoy!
The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Tag You're It.
I will be adding my tag there as well.
While I'm at it, I'll add this spring tag to the challenge over at Frilly & Funkie.
They are having a Welcome Spring Challenge.
Here are some highlights -
I made my own tag by cutting a strip of manila cardstock 3.75" X 12". I placed the tag top through the Dotted Scallop Circle die, from Elizabeth Craft Designs, as shown above and ran it through my die cutting machine. After the top was created, I trimmed the tag to 7" long.
Using Distress Ink with an ink blender - color was added. I used Abandon Coral, Fossilized Amber and Twisted Citron.
When the color was what I wanted, I ran the tag through my machine with an embossing folder designed by Karen Burniston called Trendy Tiles.
Next the flowers were cut using the Lacy Poppies die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Then they were colored using Copic Markers and a little shimmer from A Wink of Stella.
For the ribbon I colored some Tim Holtz Crinkle Ribbon using the Twisted Citron reinker. To do this, drop some reinker on a craft mat, add some water to the ribbon and the ink. Dip the ribbon into the ink until it is colored. Dry with a heat tool.
Now all that is needed is to assemble -
Enjoy your weekend,
