Crazy 4 Challenges- Tag your it!

Happy Saturday!

Joycelyn has a fun challenge for us today- make a gift tag or a card with a tag on it. I made this Paris inspired tag which is actually the gift for the person I made it for. I didn't start making it for them but with my sweet niece helping me each step of the way..well..when she said how much she 'really really liked it' how can Auntie say no to that! She is going to use it as a bookmark as well. I love when she comes to visit- she is a hardcore crafter like me and she is only 7! A girl after my own heart!

I used a Ranger tag and used about 3 different shades of Tim Holtz Pink distress inks then decided it needed to be broken up a bit and used that gorgeous teal distress ink he had come out in his Summer set. I always tell myself I am not going to get them this time and then I can't resist hee hee. I loved how the teal turned some areas purple when I put it over the pink. I spritzed water to add some texture and also added some opaque white spritz. I stamped my tag in Versafine (my fave) and added some of Timmy's film strip to add to the vintage feel. My niece loves bling so I also added some Tattered Angels Pearl glimmer mist and this gorgeous crystal ribbon slide to the black satin ribbon. She loved it!

What kind of gift tag..or tag that's a gift are you inspired to make? Hop on over to the C4C blog and see what other Tagalicious goodies the ladies have cooked up for inspiration for you today!

Cheers, Andrea

Magnifique. Qui? C'est Bon!! I love it. You hit spot on with the Teal. Brings perfect drama and glamour in to sound off with that bling she is loving, no doubt. The opaque white gives a feel of a night sky in the City of Romance. I have been out of the loop a bit though. What effect is "Versafine" ink? Could you reply me back on that. Thx. Andi/ S.L.C.,UTAH
