number on tag

I really have to stop this last minute entries . . .
~ Ü ~

This tag started off with the challenge at Try it on Tuesday. Use peel-offs with a wonderful technique on a tag. Not sure about the wonderful part, but this is a first for me. Creating a background with border peel-offs, 
as opposed to using it as a border.

I'm sure there's something wrong with this batch of embossing powder. It's more granule-y than powdery. I've had a hard time using it with stamped images, so I thought I'd try it with tape, instead. Yay, it works! I just got this tape a few weeks ago, and have been itching to try it out!
I combined these glittery stripes with border peel-offs 
to create a base for the tag.

The main body of this tag is embossed pink scrap. Time was running short, so I just picked up one of my misting extras on the table. You can still see the flower outline. One of my favoured backgrounds techniques is to emboss the paper, and ink it over. I can add visual layers 
without actually adding papers.
This week's challenge at Papercraft Star - a number. So I've added a numbered mini tag and I think that's all the tag needs!
 The numbers have been die cut with tape on top, and embossed with the same embossing powder. The mini tag has been edged with 
gold acrylic paint for definition.

I like the way the light is reflected on the peel-off sentiment.

This tag is also playing at these challenges
Jingle belles - stick-y & sweet (peel-offs are stickers, yes?)

Thanks for stopping by!
