Life tag

We don't always have the time we'd wish for, for our crafting so you'll often find quick and simple makes here from me. Today is no exception with this 'Life' tag...

Choose an image to make a mini tag and a piece of tissue tape, add some colour to both with DIs (I've used Tumbled glass and Scattered straw):

Take a manilla tag and, using 2 colours of DIs, blend and mist before adding stamped images with black AI. Add the tissue tape diagonally with a strip of ribbon and a washer over the punched hole:

Take some stains and a paintbush and start painting your stamped imagery:

Edge the tag with Vintage photo DI and a blending tool before adding the mini tag with a feature brad:




It can be just as rewarding to make something in an hour as something that takes days, sometimes we just HAVE to make the minutes to do it, lol!

Have a fab week!
