Tag It....

Hi, it's time for a new challenge at 
Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this fortnight it is ...

All you need is a tag somewhere on your creation.

I haven't made a tag since last time we had a tag challenge
~ challenge #4 in Sept 2011....and that was my first one!
OMG, it's been awhile!!!!! I might have to do something about that! lol

This tag was heaps of fun to make...
but it sort of spilled out over the edge so I just added it to a card.  (I just couldn't resist!)

It is male orientated and steampunk inspired.

My favourite part is the off-the-edge cogs.
It was sprayed with dylusional brown and black, 
spritzed with copper mist,
run through a cog embossing folder
 and distressed with a little black to make the crevices stand out more.

Some words of wisdom, a bit of ideology
a splatter of paint and a flying man is all that is needed!

I hope you have enjoyed this piece of fun.

Flonz has a generous $20 voucher for the winner
along with the stampettes top pics, Saturday spotlights 
and the occasional guest designer who plays along with us. FSC is a busy place to be!

Please pop over to FSC and check out the awesomeness of the stampettes!!!!
They are amazingly creative people with some wonderful ideas.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

Well Dot, I do believe judging from this, you really need to make more tags as you are a natural! Love that torn edge and great stamping and layers! Tab-oh-licious!

I agree with Terry Dot, you have this wonderful eye for colour and design and your tag is superb. I love the textures you have created and the steampunk style, more please.
Happy Sunday.

Hi Dot, you really should make tags more often, this one is fabulous. Love the cogs and the way you have used Dylusions to give the texture/dimension - a very inspirational piece. Love it! Hugs, Anne x
