Tag Card

Hello and thank you for your visit.

First I would like to wish all those who are suffering with the awful bugs that are around a speedy recovery.  The coughs and congestion certainly do seem to last a long time.

I'm still catching up with visits after a bad start to the year.  We've had problems with the internet which seem to have finally been sorted  out plus a catalogue of  minor problems.  The freezer packing up last week being the latest.

For this card I used a snippet of white card which I cut into a tag shape.  I decorated it with blended oxide inks and some stencilling and spritzing then added pieces of washi tape just because I've got loads and seldom use it.

The image is a Visible Images stamp which I heat embossed then added colour to the soles with a Promarker  pen and white gel pen for the laces.

I stamped some splodges onto the card with grey ink and snipped off the top corner of the card.

I'm taking my card over to
Pixies Snippets Workshop Weeks 317 & 318  and entering the Sweet Stampin' Challenge - cards for men

This is really cool Barb, like all the elements on your card, that background is amazing. Glad your internet is back and running. My computer crashed this week, I think we have everything restored so I am catching up on my commenting this morning.

Really great card Barb! Perfect for a chap - they're always so hard to find something just right for and you cracked it here!

Been out to have something on my car sorted out today and there was another customer sneezing all over the place. Yuk! One day I'll end up wandering around like a Japanese worker with a mask on!

This is fabulous Barb and I love the pretty colours of oxide inks and the brick and dots stencilling together with the washi tape and black twine are great as a background to the VI image, and a really modern masculine image, and I love the way you have made it look like a giant tag too. Glad that your internet problems have been fixed, and then to have your freezer break down, so frustrating for you! x

wow - I love the dimension you've achieved using this stamp - it's great.

There is always something isn't there? I think right that's everything sorted now and then something else happens! Hope you're sorted with the freezer.
