Sweet Stampin' DT post - Tags

Good morning all,

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and this week we're looking for TAGS. You can make a tag (or tags) or use one on a card, the choice is yours!

The sponsors are

for the monthly prize, and

who will be providing the prize for this week's challenge.

I made this set of tags using the Funny Owls image from The Stamp Fairy.

I decided to make 2 pairs, girlie and masculine, and paper-pieced them with suitably coloured papers.   

The girlie papers are from "Great Expressions", a brilliant find in Poundland, and the boy's ones were magazine freebies.

I fussycut the owls and mounted them on white card with foam squares to give extra depth, and I coloured their beaks and the branches with Promarkers.

The tags were die-cut using Sizzix Framelits "Tickets" dies.

I then added an eyelet and length of ribbon to each to finish them off. Oh, and the eyes are covered in Glossy accents to make them shiny!

So, that was my take on the TAGS idea. So, what about you? I know you all want to go off and join in with this challenge, but before you do, go check out the lovely makes my fellow teamies have prepared for you!

I look forward to seeing your entries!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon
Crafty Cardmakers - Paper piecing
Eclectic Ellapu - Anything but a card

You've made these fairly simple tag designs look extra special with the paper piecing and shiny eyes - just so cute! I used to have a thing for owls when I was younger and have a collection of little owls in a drawer at home! So your tags were especially appealing to me :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
