Tag, You're It ... Now in Teal, Lime, and Black

Pin It

Happy Wednesday, boys and girls! Today, while measuring card stock, it suddenly occurred to me that without geometry, life is pointless.

Okeedokee then. Today's tag project was created for this week's "Tag, You're It" blog challenge. This week, the amazin' Tag Ladies ... not to be confused with the amazin' Bag Ladies ... required players to create a tag using just three colors: teal, black, and lime green. I guess you saw that comin', huh?

I ran a set of Grungeboard wings through the Cuttlebug in the Script embossing folder, then painted the wings with Golden Fluid acrylic paint. I mounted the wings to my tag using black pop-up dimensionals.

TIP: Invest in some black dimensionals; they're perfect for using on dark backgrounds, such as my tag, but they also eliminate the unsightly view of those bright white dimensionals you're currently using. The black ones practically 'disappear' ... and I've discovered that yes, people do look under there! I KNOW, crazy, huh?!?

Next, I stamped my sentiment, (Tuscan Rose ... I think), on lime green card stock then cut out a heart using a die from the Nestabilities Classic Heart collection. Using more dimensionals, I mounted the heart die-cut to the wings.

Using this very kewl stamp from FontWerks, which I dearly {heart}, I stamped two arrows, cut them out and glued them to my tag, trimming off the excess flush with the tag.

Finally, I punched out three 1/2" circles and fitted them with teal brads; the black one was mounted on a lime green button. I added some funky fibers and finis! Quick and dirty easy!

On a different note, voting has begun in the Y.ou Y.ou R.ock "Rock the Cover" challenge! Head on over to the Y.K.Y.R. blog to vote for your favorite card ... and wait till you see these entries ... they ALL totally rock! And remember, it's one vote per person so every vote counts! Yup, yours too!

Thanks for spending part of your busy day with me ... now go Rock the Y.K.Y.R. Vote!
