Catch the bug - Tag You're It - use a tag

Thursday July 18, 2013
 
We are winding down on our week long Christmas in July at Catch The Bug I hope you all have been having a fun time and playing along. I've seen some awesome cards submitted for the daily challenges. There is still time to get your cards in, so enter. Lots of fun prizes to win.
 We have another challenge today it's TAG YOU'RE IT - USE A TAG
 
I used AKV Santa for my image and made a tag.. I thought of a tag used on a card but my mind did not want to work so I kept it simple.
I used ranger inks and smeared them on my plastic sheet and spritzed with water and laid the tag in the ink mix to get the card background. I wanted a tree on the card so found some dcwv paper that had that tree look and used my pti tree die and added it to the tag. It kind of blends in too much in the photo but in real life it stands out more. I fussy cut out the image and adhered to the tag. Got some of my favorite ribbons/yarns out and added them to the tag. little stickle and bling and done..

The background on your tag is amazing. I have never played with these inks so you may have convinced me to add them to my stash!
