OCC - Tag Challenge


Today's challenge over at the Our Creative Corner Blog is to use any sort of tag on your card. The tag can be large or small and it doesn't have to be the focal point of the card if you don't want it to be :) I decided to go with the Spellbinder's Tag Dies because I needed something that attached across the width of my card.



I pulled out my Pressed Petals set from Artful INKables and borrowed this sweet sentiment to go with my new Hollyhock Bittybloom by Stamping Bella. I adore the sentiment and thought that it fit very nicely with my bella :)



I added some dimension to this little cutie pie by popping her up and added an "out of the box" balloon with some crystal effects for shine. The image has been watercoloured with an aqua painter and some of my re-inkers in various shades.

Pardon me while I keep this post incredibly short. It's very late here and I am off to bed after prepping 56 cards for 2 card classes that I am teaching. My hands hurt from cutting up so much paper...you know me...I can't just leave it at one or two layers! lol

Don't forget to pop by to see what the the rest of the OCC DT has created just for you :)
