ABNH--Tag! You're It!




Challenge #12 at A Blog Named Hero is to incorporate a tag into your card or project.

I love making tags. Love that you can scribble a message on the back and tie them to a gift, or just attach them to a card.




Several months ago, I won Hero Arts' Square Pattern background stamp from Cheiron and decided to--finally!--use it for my tags.

After inking it with white pigment ink, I stamped it on kraft cardstock and cut out tag shapes.

The flowers were embossed in white and ink distressed with Distress inks, trimmed and adhered with dimensional tape.

The Heydey Sentiments were stamped with Archival ink and I tied on some contrasting rayon seam binding that I dyed myself.




And I learned something new today: While it bleeds like crazy with Copics,
Georgia-Pacific's inexpensive white cardstock from WalMart ink distresses beautifully!

Thanks for visiting today...
