Well I know I'm supposed to be in Melbourne but at the last moment I decided to stay home instead! I was a bit concerned about going down after my recent flu episode and then Walshie said he would be working all week-end so I thought I'd stay at home, make the most of my time alone and get on with a few jobs before we go away in June.
I spent some time today working on this 'tag' for the new Challenge Blog called "The Tuesday Taggers" check them out here.
The first challenge is called 'New Beginnings' so my tag is called 'Spring'.
For the tag I mounted Kiwi Kiss to some white card and using a white pen marked a border around the edge. I cut out flowers from some dp called We Are Memory Keepers and attached these with a button and some gems to the base of my tag, letting the petals sit up (not sure you can really see that in this photo). I also punched a couple of swirls to sit amongst these flowers. Just above this I used Delish flocked letters to spell Spring. Then I stamped a bird from a Heidi Grace clear stamp set and a butterfly from Hampton Arts Clear Stamps and popped them up with foam tape. The basket of tulips is from SU A Flower For All Seasons, I coloured it with Copics after clear embossing first. This I then cut out and mounted on a scalloped circle from SU. Some cream satin ribbon tied and bowed at the top completed my first tag - hope you like it........
