Tuesday Taggers No 7


Wayyyyy out of my comfort zone this week with a distressed look as the theme, it's just not something I do, most of my cards are bright & modern & I wasn't quite sure what to do with this, but really fancied the challenge as it was so different for me.

In the end I kept it simple, cut a tag shape out of cardstock & distressed it using Stampin' Up! inks Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel & More Mustard (I'm on a diet and those inks sound so yummy!!!), I then used a swirly stamp I've had for ages and never used, inked it up with Close to Cocoa and printed it twice, and then cut out the image which I printed from my computer (and apologies as I don't know where I got it from) and raised it on the tag with SU dimensionals. I kept wondering if I needed to add anymore, but left it and hope it's ok.

The challenge this week is sponsored by The Craft Barn and you can view their fab website here how nice to win a shopping spree!
