Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge #8



It is time for another tag challenge over at Joan's Gardens.  I have been wanting to try making a rose with "pear" punches and that is what I did for this tag.  I used three different size pear punches and I love how it turned out.  I believe it is the most realistic rose I have made so far.  These punches can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  Joan created a beautiful tag using punches to create violets.  Using punches to create flowers is so much fun.

As before, I used a manila shipping tag to work with.  A piece of design paper from my "scrap" bin was used for the background.  Making tags is a great way to use these smaller pieces of design paper up.  The edges were distressed with the Zutter Distrezzer.    A piercing tool was used to punch holes all the way around it then a black maker used to draw "faux" stitching.   The very top of the tag was embossed with the Cuttlebug dotted Swiss embossing folder to give it some texture.  A small piece of white lace was sprayed with Walnut Ink to give it an antique look.  Two Cuttlebug leaves were die cut, colored and shaped, then placed under the rose.  A couple of K&Company embellishments and a silk bow were added to complete the tag.

I hope you will go over to Joan's Blog and enter the challenge.  You may use anything you want for making your tag and you have a chance to win a prize from Joan's Gardens.  . 

Do you like how my rose turned out?
