.... I've finally managed to make a tag for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC62. The sketch is super - a bit different - a tag designed by Anya Schrier.
I'm not great at tags and don't do them often, but I decided to give it a go. And I've kept reasonably close to the sketch too. I used my Spellbinders nesties to make the tag - the lovely Labels 4 - I used the smallest of the Grand Labels 4 to cut two tags, and the largest of Labels 4 to cut one more. I decorated the two largest labels - stamping one label with the gingham stamp and heat embossing with clear powder and the other with the flower trellis and heat embossing with white powder. I used some pale yellow ribbon to make a loop and then stuck the two layers together. I decided to make the flower trellis the front of the tag with the gingham as the back.
I attached a strip of ribbon (to match the loop) to the smaller label - it's stitched down (not brilliant stitching). I stamped the large and small rose onto some white card and coloured them both with Promarkers. I also stamped a couple of leaves onto kraft card and heat embossed with white powder. I coloured the leaves with just a hint of green. I stamped the sentiment onto kraft card, embossed with white powder and then cut them to make pennants. I added a touch of white distress ink to the sentiment and reverse of the tag.

I decorated the reverse of the tag too with the big rose. I do like the slightly rustic feel to this tag, and I think Mum will like it too. As it's decorated on both sides, she'll be able to hang it in the window. For the colour inspiration I've used CR84FN36 - just love these colours!!
I'm off to see the Physio again this morning - hopefully for the last time. My knee is feeling very much better. Will let you know later. Hopefully, I'll have a card for Less is More too!!
