Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge




Time for another tag challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week I have used a new Sizzix embossing folder "Birds & Wreath" set to create my tag.  There are two embossing plates in this package.  A brayer was used to add blue ink to the inside of the embossing folder so the background would be colored and let the embossing stand out.  Oh no -- just remembered I forgot to clean the ink off the embossing folder with a baby wipe.  Will go do that as soon as I get this posted.

The lace along the bottom of the tag was die cut with the Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" die.  The top flourish, and the frame for the sentiment were die cut with the new Spellbinders "Floral Doily Motifs" dies.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Elegant Frames" stamp set and the little flourish above and under it are from the JustRite "You Inspire Me" set.  The sentiment was attached with a dimensional.  Three small flowers were punched with the small "blossom" flower punch and shaped with the tools from the Flower Tool Kit.  The stamens were punched with the small sun punch.  A small yellow pearl was added to the center of each stamen.  A Martha Stewart Butterfly was added, and a bow at the top, to complete the tag. 

A new Tag Challenge begins every Tuesday.  Hope you will join us this week.  There are no special requirements - create any style tag and enter it at Joan's Gardens.
