Tag Time at FSC

Time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping, and its time for tags ! I love making tags and one of my ongoing projects (i.e. something I've started and never get round to working on!) is to make sample tags working through Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry 101 online class (that I signed up to a life time ago and haven't got round to finishing) So this fortnight's FSC challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to add another - 

The background is created using the perfect splatter distress technique - perfect pearls and distress inks. I've kept the tag simple to show off the background, adding a few bits of background stamping and the main image which is a flonzcraft stamp. I added some Stampendous shabby green embossing powder along the bottom edge, decoupaged the flowers and added some stickles rock candy glitter to the flowers also.  
I made two tags and left one undecorated.
Stuck them both in my CC101 album and added the instructions on the opposite page.

The rest of the FSC team have, as always, made some beautiful tags for inspiration, so do pay them a visit and it would be great to have you join our tag challenge - don't forget we MUST see some stamping, not just Digis, and the winner will be chosen at random and receive a voucher to spend over at FlonzCraft...Happy Tagging..Esther xx


  1. Hi Esther...Such a beautiful tag, with scrumptious colours ! I love this technique too from Tim, and such a good idea to make an album with the tags.
