TAG IT ON #20 - text me in purple!

Hello my lovely fellow bloggers!!! Today I have a tag for you. Its already no20 over on the Tag It On Challenges. Where has the time gone? I now have 20 tags sitting in a box & am not sure what to do with them. I have thought about mounting them all on a canvas....just think of all the pretty colours together...yum!!! Anyway...on to business hahaha. The theme Frankie set this week is........TEXT ME IN PURPLE.I just LOVE always looks so rich, especially with gold!!! No...I haven't used gold today but a bit of brass hahahaha

The tag itself is some diecut chippie that I had...lovely shape too. I usedDusty Concord DI & overstamped with A mahoosive damask Sir Tim stamp I have. The text is an old favourite stamp by Hero Arts. The flower has a little brass looking flower in it (now that has to be bad english haha) , the centre being a lovely velvet brad. I used stickles round the edge & vlevet ric-rak to finish off.
Thank you so much for popping over....I love to read your comments, HUGS XXX

Oh how yummy, Karen... how pretty the shape too. Thanks for dreaming with me again this week. I don't have many of my tags as I add them to cards as the main topper and create round them... but I bet your set of 20 looks great. Any way to show us?? BTW THAT must mean you have done all twenty challenges... is that so? Bet there's only me and you done that!!!!

I love the purple tag you have made. Congrats on doing all 20, good for you.
I give my tags to a girlfriend with a bunch of the cards I made. She is always sending flowers, gifts, cards to people through her church. She loves the cards I send, and the gift tags.
I think a canvas of them would look really neat. Post photos when and if you make it.

Hello Karen, Its me Adele from South Africa. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I'm delighted that you love my creations. I'm just as exited about the fact that I now have a few crafting friend on the net (you being one of them) I do so hope that some of your friends will also visit my blog and we can all learn from each other.

Hi Karen. This is a great shape, I love it and purple is a yummy colour, I love the soft shade you've used with your beautiful stamps.
I have a box of tags too, but only 18, my hols got in the way of 2 of them but I do like looking back at them sometimes. I keep planning to use them on a scrapbook page, perhaps I'll just have to do a page about them instead, now there's an idea!!!!


Gini said...

Oh, I have a display idea for your tags! How about making a 3D card triangle with three flat sides (a very tall 3 sided pyramid) and stick the tags all around the sides. If you have one of those swivel cake stands it could even do a spin!
It could sit on a side table perhaps?

You're right, the purple looks really rich - great tag! You've added lots of lovely stuff to your blog in the last couple of weeks - love the little house especially!
