Tags, tags, tags

Debi from Country Lane taught us not to waste ink in last weekend's class. When we were creating our backgrounds for the main project, she encouraged us to capture the extra ink by blotting onto manilla tags. I was pleasantly surprised at how gorgeous the tag backgrounds ended up looking and decided to use them for some additional projects. Debi also taught using magazine pictures as part of interesting collages (wow, didn't we do this in elementary school?) and I LOVED this idea. I have to pay more attention to the crafts my boys are doing in school as there are clearly some great ideas that I've forgotten! Here are the tags that I ended up with...
All 3 tags use Dylusions stamp elements that are coloured with Tombow and Copic markers. The tag backgrounds are all Dylusions spray inks combined with Dylusions stamps. I suspect that I'll end up adapting these tags into cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids but we'll see...


  1. These are fantastic!! Love all the different little images on them and the way they all come together. Cute yellow hair on that one too! Wonderful tags and for a great cause.
