Would You Like A Tag?


I took a little play time last night and thought I'd make a tag for the current Frilly and Funkie Challenge which is Kraft and Twine.  I also just got all the Dylusions sprays this past week and had to have a go with them.  I started with a Ranger #8 manila tag, sprayed it with water and 3 colors of Dylusions spray - squeezed orange, bubblegum pink, and melted chocolate, layed another tag on top to pick up excess liquid, pulled them apart and dried them.  So now I had two tags started and normally I would have thrown one off to the side for later use but decided I'd just go ahead and make two tags.  I continued to layer using stencils, sprays, inks, water, and then added some stamping... decided I'd like a lighter area for the quote and used Jenni Bowlin malted milk paint dabber to lighten an area large enough for it, dried it and stamped the quote (Tim Holtz) using Archival jet black.  Added a piece of old lace, a torn piece of corrugated (a free gift from Linda with an order from the Funkie Junkie's Boutique) with a little paint rubbed on, burlap string (another free gift from Linda), a metal filigree also from the Funkie Junkie, and a flower.  The flower is die cut (Tim's tattered floral die) from kraft glassine... I stacked 3 together - 2 are sprayed with squeezed orange and 1 with bubblegum pink - after sprayed I did NOT blot off any extra, I just dried them with a heat tool... Love the speckled color!!  Stapled the flowers together and then glued an Ideaology button on the top (shank cut off).  Tied a piece of jute (from my stash) at the top.

Since I now have two tags I thought I would give one away... just leave me a comment before I check the computer early Monday morning and I will randomly pick a winner... oh, and if you like one better just let me know which one in the comment.

Woohoo, Wanda, these are stunning! I absolutely LOVE the colors you have used - what a gorgeous color palette! Great work with the stenciling too. And that button (or brad?) that you used for the flower center is just gorgeous. I so love seeing what people make with the items from my shop. SO happy to have you playing in our Kraft and Twine challenge this week at Frilly and Funkie. And don't forget to link up with Sunday Share for anything you make with items from my shop. We don't have many people joining the Sunday-Saturday inky party each week so you stand a great chance of wining a 25% discount coupon to The Funkie Junkie boutique.

Hugs,
Linda

That is by far the silliest question I've heard this week. And I know my silly questions.
Of course anyone would be honored to be the recipient of any one of theste wandaful tags. Guten Tag, as they say in Germany, which actually means good day, but really fits here. A good tag equals a good day.

Kathy Eddy said...

Oh My Wanda! Beautiful! Love them both but the one on the right with more brown tones just really grabs me. Fantastic work!

Teresa Kline said...
