Simon Says TAG IT!

wed-newchallenge-header

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Make Your Own Background Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,

TAG IT

you can make a tag or add a tag to a card/project.

We are showcasing TIM HOLTZ PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Rather than make a tag I made a card and trimmed off the corners to make it LOOK like a tag.  I punched a hole at the top and threaded through some twine (tip: cut a small slit in the fold of the card and thread the twine through it before tying at the fold – means you can still open it!!).

I used the Holiday Knit stencil and a few shades of blue Copic marker in the Spritzer tool to lay down the pattern on my card.  I then went over it with a sponge blender and white pigment ink.  I die cut the new Clearly Besotted Merry Christmas dies and Snowflake die three times from white cardstock and glue them together before adhering to the card front.  I finished it all off with a few clear sequins.
