Postage themed tag

For this week's challenge on 'Tag You're It' the guest designer Penny, chose the theme of postage. I love the tag she made and as I've never made a tag before, thought I'd enter. The scrap piece of white card is covered in Pink Petticoat paper (which is upside down!!!!!) and sponged with black distress ink on the edges. I used my postage stamp die to cut out the stamp from a scrap of lilac Bazzil Bling and embossed it with one of the folders that came with it, this was also sponged on the edges, and slightly over the embossed design. I stamped the sentiment in versafine ink, punched a hole with a flower shaped punch and tied the ribbons. I enjoyed making the tag, it was quick and I used only leftover scraps which is a great way of using them up. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
