Simon Says..........Tag It!

wed-newchallenge-header

It's Wednesday and another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!


This week our theme is Tags, and the design team are using Ranger products.   I had fun making mine this week!  It's that time of year when we gardeners start longing for growing things, so I chose that for my theme.


I used these Ranger products: Peacock Feathers and Vintage Photo distress inks, Verdigris embossing powder, and a manila tag.  The largest fern is simply stamped with peacock feathers ink, and the other to the left was stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Verdigris powder.  They are very close in color, but the embossed one has a golden shimmer to it.   Other supplies: Hero Arts Silhouette Fern, Traditional Butterfly, and the subtle script is from the Artistic Windows set, sentiment from Impression Obsession's In a Garden set.  The clock motif comes from an old Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection stamp set.  I dyed my seam binding with some distress ink, and added some natural twine to it.

And here's a 2nd one, using roughly the same colors, but with a bird and music theme:


I started with cream cardstock that was trimmed to fit inside the kraft tag and stamped some music across it, then used this Mini Flower Frenzy stencil to add some broken china details.  My sentiment is from a Hero Arts set, Essential Messages, and my branch is Simon's Small Forest Tree; the bird is the Perched Reed Bird by Memory Box.  Then I added Lawn Fawn sequins, an October Afternoon button, and some lace and twine to finish.  Ranger products used here are Vintage Photo and Broken China distress inks, and the kraft tag.

ETA: I'm adding this 2nd tag to the Moxie Fab World's Styling with Stencils challenge.
