Tag Your It

Hello again.

This is a very exciting post to share with you.




Yes I was asked to be a Guest Designer at Creative Craft Cottage
on their current challenge which beings today.

The theme is: Tag Your It
The Sponsor is: Robyn's Fetish


I have used a lovely image from Robyn's Fetish called Dragonfly Day which has been coloured in with Copic Markers.

Once the image was coloured, I cut out the flower and the dragonfly to place them separately on my card.

I used a fun paper for the background which inspired my Copic Colours used.  The paper is by Fab{u}lous Simple Stories collection.

The cardstock used is SU Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron.  The ribbon was from my stash SU Crumb Cake and Island Indigo.

For the Tag on my card I used a laser tag I had and layered some paper on top, folded over a corner added a peg and some ribbon and then added the flower image on top.

Here my card:



The dragonfly was added so he looked like he was just flying about. I also added some pearls to his wings.

The lace and pearls were from my stash and the sentiment is from SU A Dozen Thoughts.

The punches used were SU Small Oval and Eyelet Border.
