best wishes tag

I love tags! I have them dangling from my handbag, my kids' bags and all over the place. It's a wonder I've never had one here.

This is a Sizzix diecut tag. I started out with chipboard, which was inked and stamped all over. I actually stamped the main image as well, but it did not come out as strongly as I wanted. Instead of restamping, I went over the image with a fine-tip glue pen. Which I then heat-embossed with glittery powder. It's an interesting effect, really textural.

The tag is finished with a sentiment (which was also distressed), ribbon and plastic flowers.

This tag is playing along with Papertake Weekly (fancy a punch? oh yes!), Creative Card Crew (May flowers), Top Tip Tuesday (flower frenzy), Tuesday Throwdown (use diecuts), Charisma Cardz (no cards allowed), Paperplay (show us your style), Crafty Catz (quote/sentiment), Allsorts (3 different stamps), Secret Crafter (dust off your stash - plastic flowers), Let's Ink It Up (embellish it), The Paper Shelter (Bling it up!), Divas by Design (Anything Goes).
