H2H Challenge: Tag, You're It!

Hello! This is my third challenge this month as the guest designer at the H2H Challenge Blog, and it's a fun one called: Tag, You're It! I decided to make a trio of spring time tags that I can use on gifts or even put it on a card.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the tag and decorative layer from page 50 at 4" out of the beautiful new Chantilly papers. I also cut the flourish from page 50 at 1", and from page 51 I cut the bird and wing out at 1 3/4".

The bird and tag were cut out of Buttercup Cardstock which comes with the Chantilly Paper Packet.  I then used the Universal Backgrounds stamp to add the woodgrain image on the tag and the written words image on the bird with Buttercup ink for a tone on tone look that adds some extra dimension.

I then inked the tag layer with Cotton Candy ink, and added my two favorite accessories: Shimmer Trim and Zipper Lace!  I used 3-D Foam Tape to adhere the layer to the tag.

I then added the flourish to this layered piece.

For the bird, I added a Bitty Sparkle for the eye, and added the wing with 3-D Foam Tape.

I added the bird on top of the flourish with 3-D Foam Tape, and adhered a Trinkets Wooden butterfly shape to the top. Below the bird I added a clear acrylix flower and put some green glitz glitter gel in the center.

The final touch was to add a strip of the green Chantilly Textiles to the top of the tag.

I hope you're inspired to play along with this week's H2H Challenge....Tag, You're It!

Happy Crafting!
