Tagged & Tied

I love fancy, vintagy tags but never take time out from card-making to make one. So this week, the challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday was to make a tag and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was a challenge in which I was going to participate. A short time later, I was on the Copic Creations Challenge Blog and amazingly, they were having a botanical challenge sponsored by Flourishes!! What a perfect combination, especially since I recently purchased this set and haven't tired of it yet!

So here is the result of the two challenges. I really love this set and plan to use it a few more times before I file it away in my stamp closet. Flourishes also has a fabulous new strawberry set that I have on order but won't receive in time for these two challenges. If you love strawberries, be sure to stop by their challenge blog and vew the DT samples. They are really gorgeous!

The two layer tag is cut with two Spellbinders dies - Mega Rectangles and the Classic Frame Frameabilities. The designer paper is from Stampin' Up! as is the Script background stamp. The image was stamped with Mememto Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White paper, sponged with More Mustard and Creamy Carmel and colored with Copic markers. The tie is some wonderful brown lace ribbon I picked up recently at Jo-Ann's and the jumbo eyelet is from SU!
