Let's play tag!

Hello everyone :0) It's only me :0)
Today I thought we could play tag ... I think tags are highly under rated ... don't just think tag ... you can add this to a card ... hang it off a gift ... add it to a scrapbook page ... the list is endless ... so without further ado this is what I used ... and how I made it!
Stash requirements:-
White card for base tag and heart ... I used 300gsm but any thick white card will do.
Grunge paper for the rose and leaf
Jet black archival ink
water and mini mister
Idea-ology embellishments

1. Blend Spiced marmalade and aged mahogany on your tag with cut n dry foam then spritz your heart stamp with water and stamp a random pattern on your tag. This picture really does not do this technique justice ... you really need to try it at home. Dry tag with heat gun.

2. Stamp the valentines text in jet black archival ink in the bottom right corner

3. Stamp the heart onto white card with archival ink and blend with Aged mahogany distress ink. Spray the mini mister into your hand a drop water onto the heart. Dry with a paper towel and cut out. Make a rose out of grunge paper ... there are loads of tutorials available for this ... but I use the one on Mr Tim's blog!
4. Assemble your tag and add a leaf to finish.
I told you it was easy :0)
See you all next week :0) Have a great weekend ... and don't forget to check back daily for some yummy posts from the rest of the Kreative Kaboodles and Creativity Boutique design teams!
