Whimsical Wednesday Challenge ~ "Tag It"

Welcome to our Whimsical Wednesday Challenge!

Todays challenge is ~Tag It!
Make a tag and it must include bling.

I must say this truly was a challenge for me. I have never done a tag before and had no idea where to start or what I wanted to make. I don't think I have ever stressed about what to make for a project as much as I have for this challenge.

I started on it pretty late at night and was too tired to finish it so I took a sneak peek picture and left it on my table deciding I would finish it in the morning. Well, it turns out my 4 year old daughter did not like what I was doing with the tag and decided she needed to add her own special touch to it. needless to say I had to make a new one. (The second picture is of both of the tags.)

The tag I made today I made for my 9 year old daughter. (The fairy really reminded me of her.)

The tag was made using "Tags Bags Boxes and More" cartridge. (although there are lots of other cartridges that have tags on them.) The pink layer was cut from the "Love Struck 2010" cartridge. I added Lavender Stickles, and a purple metallic gel pen to highlight parts of it. The stamp is from Scrappy Moms stamps and the twine is from The Twinery. For the bling I used my i-rock and clear gems.

Here are both tags together. She took off all of the gems because she didn't like where I had put them. After thinking about it I decided she was right so when I made the second one I did the gems in a wavy patteren instead of straight.

To get all the detail about the challenge and to see the tags the other wonderful DT members have made head on over to the Whimsical Wednesday Blog.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
