Tag, You're It!
It's Monday! Time for another challenge from the Outlines Challenge Blog! This week the challenge is to make a tag or two using Outlines images that could be used on holiday presents. Make sure you play along with us this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.
I was able to make two tags for this challenge. Both were made using the Outlines images of "Wavy Poinsettia Large" (I-981), "Wavy Poinsettia Medium" (H-982), "Wavy Poinsettia Small" (E-983) and the sentiments from "Posy Winter Greetings" (F-1124). I stamped all with Marvy black dye ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I added color with Copic markers. The largest poinsettia was actually colored green for the poinsettia leaves, and the small and medium poinsettia images were used for the actual petals of the poinsettias. I did do some highlighting with a white gel pen and added some shimmer with some Pebbles Pearlescent Shimmer Chalks. I cut around the images. Some Stickles were added to the center of the flower.
Patterned paper from My Minds Eye was cut by the Cricut into tags using the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. Lace, sheer ribbon, and gold ribbon were added to the tags for the finishing touches. I paper pierced around one of the tags, and faux stitched with a white gel pen.

So glad you had the chance to visit my blog today. Have a terrific week!
