Visible Image - April Challenge Starts!

Think TAG!

This month on the Visible Image challenge we are looking for your creations around the theme of TAGS.

Big ones, small ones, singles, multiples, one off, collections, and anything else you can think of! 

I liked the idea of a set of tags that I could put on a card but having made a few small tags I didn't feel that they were doing justice to the stamps so I ditched the card idea and went for a set of large 'stand alone' tags.

What do you think? I haven't done anything with a moon for a while so I seized the chance with the tags. I also haven't done anything grungy for a while so I went with that too. 

First I made the tags by checking out the size of the flowers that come in the More than Words range. I used a cream coloured card as the base and then masked off the moon with some circles of paper cut from sticky notes using a punch. You will know if you have read my past posts that I like using sticky notes because if you cut them carefully they have a bit of built-in adhesive to hold the shape down. Then using my favourite Gentle Blend inks in Sage and Lavender, I coloured the tags. Gentle Blends can be purchased from a fab little shop in Rugby called DRAGON'S PAPER CRAFT  They also stock Visible Image stamps and regularly hold demos days and workshops.

Next came the jet black flower silhouettes. I had already got the Bronte Script and the Music Background  stamps out as they are brilliant for adding interest and I used them as supporting players.

Some sentiments, a bit of bling and ribbon and there we are! Once again I have used a whole host of Visible Image stamps! This is easily done as they all work so well together. (Just got to list them all now!)


Just for a bit of fun I also made a few tags using some of the little bits and pieces I had leftover from other projects and experiments. I love how speedy tag making can be if you do this. If you are like me and you have a stash of pieces that are too good to put in the bin then maybe you could do the same? I keep all my Visible Image leftovers in a box so that I can use them as part of my DT projects knowing they are all just made using Visible Image pieces. When you have plenty of bits 'n' bobs it can be an idea to group them into colours. It makes the tags, or whatever your project is, look totally deliberate and co-ordinated!

So, get making your tags! All you need to do is use some Visible Image stamps to qualify for entry into the challenge. All the details can be found over on the Visible Image blog. If you are a user of Facebook, then you can upload your entry into the group photo album. You will need to join the group which is really easy, just follow this link and request to join.

You won't have long to wait for my usual Friday Feature, only a few days, and I promise you it won't be a tag. At this moment in time I have no idea WHAT you will be seeing but trust me my cogs are whirring! 

Have a fab week, craft loads, and come back soon for more adventures with KimzKrafts!!
