Make a Tag - 11 Dec

The lovely and incredibly talented Hazel has asked we all create tags for the next challenge at the Craft Room.  I know there is a great array of tag making around at the moment but to be honest I don't make a lot of tags (if any) so I have tried my best. We are this time sponsored by Flonz Stamps.

My tag is a jumbo sized tag in mountboard.  I first placed my chipboard letters on the plain tag before covering the tag with silver metal tape.  I shaped the metal tape around my letters and then coloured with a mixture of Stazon and alcohol inks.  The top part of my tag was embossed with snowflakes and then coloured in the same way.My chipboard circle has been painted with silver acrylic paint before being embossed.

Scalloped chipboard embossed borders were added to the bottom.  The image, courtesy of Flonz is lovely and I stamped this on card which has been coloured with distress inks before random sponging with white acrylic paint and crackle effect - the effect is not really showing that well but I think looks like frost/ice.  The image has been coloured with Promarkers.

The layered poinsetta die cut and lovely twine are courtesy of Marianne Designs.

I hope you can play along with us at the Craft Room - we are taking a short break over Christmas and will be back with a new challenge on 8 January 2013.

Would love to enter the following challenges with my tag:-

Come and Get it Challenges - "Tag"
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - "to die for"
Just us Girls Challenge - "Embossing"
