TOMIC 46 - Mini world and doo hickey tag

Hi everyone! There's a new challenge starting on TOMIC today which is to use any stamp from Magnolia mini world, a doohickey tag die as the base for the stamp and then the tag can be part of a larger item. Hope you can join us for the challenge and as always there's a gorgeous prize to be won.

 I've used the cute mini world Tilda from the new stamp club kit and I stamped her onto the doohickey tag which is cut from watercolour paper. I watercoloured with various media, inked edges, added stickles and mounted the tag on to the blue card then cut around it to leave a border.

I made a gift box, pizza box style which measures four inches square, it's my favourite box to make as it's so simple and can be modified to different sizes very easily. I think the patterned paper is October Afternoon, but not too sure and after decorating the box with that I added the tag on top of a Spellbinders fleur de lis die cut, added ribbon, flowers, pearls and a beaded tassel at the front.

This is one of the rare occasions when all the sparkle of the stickles has shown up in the photographs but it shows up a bit too much :D...........can't believe I said that!
