A Tag At Last!


I hope your weekend is going well!  World Cup Fever has taken over in our house so I am taking refuge in my craft room :) 

I have been wanting to play along with Virginia's latest challenge over at Virginia's View.  I was a bit stumped as I am not one for making tags and there is the added requirement to use something recycled.....

After much messing about, this is what I came up with:

I swooshed each of the tags through distress stains diluted with water and love the backgrounds this created.  Each of the tags features Hero Arts stamps - I spritzed the ferns with water to get a softer look.  The recycled item on the first two is text from an old dictionary that I had saved for die cutting.  There is nothing recycled on the last one, I was just having so much fun making tags!!  I really enjoyed getting inky - thanks Virginia!
We are off to visit my father in law for Father's Day - best wishes to all of the wonderful Dads out there :)
Thanks for stopping by!
