Tag, She's It!

Thought I would whip up a tag using a cool sentiment from Create with TLC. I have a wonderful digi image by MayzyArt, called Shawna with Latte, which I felt would go perfectly with the sentiment that I die-cut with a Spellbinders Labels 13 die.

I used a base of Bazzill Kraft CS, and layered it with a bit of burlap and some Stampin' Up DSP from the First Edition and Mocha Morning collections. The papers were distressed using my Zutter Distrezz-It-All and sponged with SU ink. Instead of traditional ribbon, I used twine, ric-rac, and MS baker's twine. The embellishments I chose were a SU mini clothespin, a Tim Holtz trinket pin, a Tim Holtz mini paper clip, a Tim Holtz philosophy tag, and a Tim Holtz chain tassel.

I colored Shawna with my Copics: G17, B23, YR20, W00, W2, W4, W6, W8, E000, E00, E07, E11, E13, E31, E35, E50, E51, E53, E55. Copics Opaque White was used to accent the image. Copics Clear Spica was added to Shawna's belt, earrings, and flower. Shawna's eyes were given a coat of Glossy Accents.

This tag was made to enter the Simon Says Tags or ATC's Challenge. But I saw that The Octopode Factory also has a tags challenge here: Toff tag challenge, so I decided to enter that as well.

Stay tuned for the TLC blog hop this morning! See you then!
