Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Tag, You're It!!

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! I seriously can't believe it's August already. My gosh, I feel like I blink and a week goes by :)


The theme this week at Little Scrap Pieces is Tag, You're It!! We want to see your tags or projects that use a tag.


The tag was cut with a Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate Die with Strathmore Watercolor Paper. It was embossed with the Tim Holtz French Script Texture Fade and I followed Tim's instructions and cut a slit in the top of the folder to pull the tag through. The tag was spritzed with water and then colored with TH Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stains. Once the ink dried, the tag was sanded to remove the color from the embossing. The edges were inked with TH Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. TH Tissue Paper was adhered to cardstock and then cut with a Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary die. It was inked with Wild Honey and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Another bird was cut with cardstock inked with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and was then offset and adhered with foam tape for dimension. All of the edges of the bird were inked with Black Soot Distress Ink. The branch is a Spellbinders Mix'd Media Elements die cut in Kraft paper and inked with Gathered Twigs. The branch was outlined with charcoal. The ribbon is TH Crinkle Ribbon, inked with Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stains.


The sentiment is from Dylusions Quintessential Quotes stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  3. Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping by :)

My sweetest friend, this tag is extraordinary! It evokes such warmth and inspiration. The background is exquisite and I absolutely love that precious birdie. The text theme throughout the entire project is amazing... and the quote couldn't be lovelier. This makes me think of the most beautiful sunset, where we get lost in our dreams as we revel in it.
