Happy Birthday Tag

 


One thing that I very rarely make is tags. I have all the wonderful ideas about making matching tag to go with a card but very rarely do I do it.

However Imagine That Digistamp is currently celebrating their 8th birthday and Kris is having some extra weekly birthday themed challenges to celebrate. If you take part you get a specially created set so it is definitely worth participating.

The prompt this week is to create a tag with a birthday theme. It was a so and so to photograph as it was either too bright and the light shone one the gold card, or not bright enough and you couldn't see the twinkle in the paint. I hate not being able to take photos in natural light but the days are very dull here at the moment.

This tag has been made using lots of offcuts that have been recycled from shop bought cards. The centre image is a very old rubber stamp from Penny Black called Spring Air. It has been stamped onto some scrap white card and coloured with Promarkers and H20's were added to the top for shimmer. This was coloured many years ago. I have a folder with lots of images that I coloured but they have not been made into anything so it is nice to get this little cutie out. The hedgehog is sniffing the air above his head. When I fussy cut around it it looked weird so I cut the air off and decided it would look cute with little butterflies instead.

The pink circles have been cut with some generic stitched circle dies from scraps of card that have been recycled from the inside of shop bought cards. Quite often there is an insert and the card has got some good quality coloured or even patterned cards that can be used for crafting. I sandwiched a scrap of gold ribbon between the pink and a circle of white card on the back of the tag.

The Happy Birthday die is from Spellbinders. I had already cut it out of some gold textured card in the past but not used it so added the red heart stickers, the stamped image and a couple of little butterfly stickers that are some of the most used stickers I have had in my collection. They are so small and in many colours so compliment a lot of colour schemes and projects.
