A little taggy waggy :)

The new challenge at Just Some Lines is Create a Tag. Only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

For my tag I’ve used the adorable Party Dog by Just Some Lines and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers.The balloons have had a good coating of 3D Crystal Lacquer altho’ it only really shows a little on the top of the green balloon in the pic.I decided to cut him out with the same shape tag as the base and inked around the edges in Sepia Archival Ink for definition.To create the layers of DP I cut them from the same die as the kraft base,embossed them and then trimmed away the excess to reveal the border.I also tore the edges for a ruff look (couldn’t resist!).The sentiment was stamped onto another die cut from the set and the edges were inked on that too.I added the brads and folded back the arms,legs (or whatever you call them…lol) back so that they would not be seen from the front.Some baker’s twine was tied to the small tag and some more along with a length of grosgrain ribbon onto the tag base.

    I love your birthday tag…well actually tags since it’s kinda two in one 🙂 I guess that makes it doubley awesome! This would look great on a birthday present for someone! Your colouring is fantastic and I love the inking around the edges! Great work!
