Mum Tag

Hi everyone.  I've made a second tag for the Tag You're It! challenge.  I'm not sure that this qualifies, but hope so.


I have used Marcia's (Featured Designer) tag for inspiration.  I don't have any sweet images like Marcia used on her tag, but used her autumn theme.  I do love the colours of autumn, and the flowers, like the mum above.  Mums are so beautiful and last a VERY long time. :)

I stamped the mum bouquet off the edge of the tag, in medium brown ink and heat embossed in clear.  Then I used my zigs to watercolour the flower and leaves.  I used the same ink and clear embossing on the sentiment.  I added a bright green, tone-on-tone, polka dot ribbon at the top.

Here's the close-up.

There's only a few more days left for this month's challenge ... I hope you'll check it out and play along!

Paper:  Mixed Media paper (Strathmore 140 lb.)
Ink:  Brushed Corduroy (Tim Holtz); Zigs
Accessories & Tools:  clear embossing powder, heat tool, water brush, bright green ribbon

  17. Lovely tag, Loll! I love the shape of your tag and how the flowers appear on the tag. As if the tag was part of a larger whole. It looks so beautiful. And I love your way of coloring the image. ZIG's are great :-) and the light colors work perfectly together.
