TAG IT ON 45 - METALLIC MODE!

mmmm....why is it that you think you have something and when you go on the hunt you just can't find it??????   Grrrrr!!!!!  I had a great idea in my head but am frustrated that I couldn't do it!!!  So this tag isn't really what I had in mind as I had to use some other metal embellies that I had :(  Never mind eh...

I cut the shape randomly and then inked up with distress inks & overstamped with a Tim Holtz stamp.  The metal flowers & the fairy charm were a pressie from a crafty friend x  I added the blue ribbon as I needed a contrast.  Not too pleased with this one as I still have that idea in my head hahaha!

If you pop over to FRANKIE'S TAG IT ON CHALLENGE BLOG you will find more tags using metal.  Thank you for looking today, HUGS XXX

Oh, isn't it annoying when that happens - you'll come across what you wanted when you're looking for something else. However, I love the tag you've done x

Actually, this is a really clever tag. Tags are hard for me to make, so I am always in awe when someone makes one, and this one with the ball chain is very clever. Those metal charms, with their blue centers are perfect with the ribbon.

Well it worked out fine eh?? I love your freeform tag, but you could have used other stuff and made it look metallic if that would have helped!!!!
Huge hugs
