'Grow' tag by Chris

This tag has become a favourite of mine. It’s a mixture of styles and elements which is what I love to do. It features a very recent acquisition to my tool shed, the ‘Dragonfly’stamp and die set from Sizzix.

If you’ve got the Tim Holtz Tornnotebook On the edge die and you’ve been discarding the debris from the cut then perhaps further examination of this tag might make you want to think again…..? Yes! I’ve been saving the leftovers because they make interesting features for your art and cards. This one is cut from cardboard from a parcel.

Grunged flowers (from Tim Holtz’ KraftResist paper stack)and a dragonfly outline (from his Core’dinationspad) serve to make the main features of the tag. I’ve used a few crystal and pearl brads to lift them a little.

I hope this has given you a few ideas, to view, print or download the instructions please click HERE. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great week.
