Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge


This is the LeBlanche Stamp Set used for this tag:

Tulips On Script
LB1168



It is time for another tag challenge at Joan's Gardens.  I have something very different from my normal style but it was a lot of fun.  I receive this pretty LaBlanche stamp from Joan's Gardens called "Tulips on Script" and decided to try my hand at a vintage style tag.  I used a manila shipping tag and used Tim  Holtz Green, Orange and Yellow Distress Inks to press directly onto the tag to give it a multi colored background.  The LaBlance Tulip was stamped with Memento black ink  then colored with Copic Markers.  Just the head of the largest tulip was stamped again and part of it cut out to apply over the one on the tag, to give it some dimension.  A few pieces of black pearl swirls were added.  A piece of green and orange trim was wound around the bottom of the tag then copper cording wound on top of it.  Joan sent me a package of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology "Philosophy" tags so I tied one around the trim on the bottom.  Three rows of the copper cording were added around the top of the tag and a few K&Company puffy embellishments were added.  Some "frilly" green and orange trim was added through the hole in the tag.

Joan has posted some more new LaBlanche stamps on her blog.  You can see them here.

I hope you will join us in this fun tag challenge.
