Tag Time

Checking out my email this morning there was one from UK Stampers reminding peeps about their current competition.  I've not visited the group for ages but something about a tag with eggs on it stirred my imagination.

I was already thinking of making a tag, they are so much fun to do.   Now I had a subject to base it on.   I've still got some old clock cards and decided to use one of these cutting it with my TH tag die, the edge was then die cut again with one of the TH edge dies.

A trawl through my stamps located a Prima set with egg images, a Magenta bee and a Stampendous image of the nesting birds.   Using the reverse of another clock card the eggs were stamped in Brilliance ink, Sky Blue.   The main image stamped in brown Momento and coloured with Promarkers.    Some Art Quest distressed dst and glitter added to the frame of the image and the smaller of the eggs added to their nest.  Florist moss stuck to the lower part of the tag with the other eggs nested in it.  The bee stamped directly onto the tag.

The idea of a Tag came from Crafting by Design who are looking at tags this time.   I love Promarkers have an anything goes with Promarkers challenge, as Promarkers are my colour pens of choice why don't I enter this challenge more often?   Finally Addicted to Stamps who have asked for entries coloured with Markers.

Thought I'd also share this with
Happy Campers - Add Dimension
Simon Says Stamp - Spring/Easter
Papercraft - Birds

Now there are stacks and stacks of spring challenges at the moment but I've resisted!

Now as snow stopped me going to the NEC and it is to windy for this little old lady to go out practicing on her bike what to do?
