Tag Challenge February 2011

Mothers Day Tag Challenge.

This month I've taken part in a Tag Challenge hosted by Helen at A Crafty Kind Of Truffle

This Tag was such fun to make, I really enjoyed it!
To make the Tag I used a Tim Holtz alterations die cut Tag. Dusty concord Distress ink was used on the tag base, and Walnut Stain Distress ink used on the eyelet ring and label.

The Label is a Nestabilities Label #10, and the flourish is a Tim Holtz die cut flourish cut from Chipboard and coloured using Shabby Shutters. (it came out quite dark on the grey chipboard).
The edges of the flowers were distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink again, and a button added using Raffia.

The Book corners are my favourite. These were made using the Martha Stewart Photo corner punch, which fold around the back of the page so caneasily fit onto thick items like chipboard or grungeboard. I embossed the punchies with a cuttlebug embossing folder, and added Walnut Stain distress ink.
Bronze Perfect pearls were rubbed over all raised areas to give a bronze, aged look.

Im going to be adding this tag to the front of a card to give to my Mum for Mothers Day (along with an altered photo frame I made for her, which will be added very soon!)
