Tag For a Man in Blue

Hi.  Susan from the DT here.  I wanted to make a tag for the man in my life.  He is fond of blue and so it fits the Rubber Dance challenge theme of this month!

First I put black acrylic paint on my craft sheet and gave my # 8 tag the first layer with my brayer, then blue and white until I was satisfied. I stamped the edges with the sewing machine stitches stamp and black archival ink.  It looked pretty good.  I embossed the tag with a texture folder from Spellbinders. The butterflies are stamped with chipped sapphire distress ink and then cut out, the same with "my" man in the photo frame. The heart is a Tim Holtz die and I have stamped my silk ribbon with Love Forever.

Thank you for your visit to the blog and I wish you a very good day.
Hugs, Susan

  2. Awesome man in blue tag, Susan! I wish you a nice and creative weekend :-)
    Hugs, Anita ♥
