Welcome to Tag Tuesday's 13th Challenge. Our challenge this week is not what you think (if you're thinking Halloween). The challenge is to recreate or be inspired by your favorite background paper. I had the chance to do this with the black and orange harlequin designed paper from Crafty Secrets and thought it was great fun! Feel free to create a tag of any theme you like, but let's see your favorite background papers recreated. And if you can, show us the paper itself!
that I love!
Story behind this week's tag:Last week I won Kris' amazing blog give-away. I wanted to send her a little thank you and this is how this week's tag challenge came about.
Don't know what I was thinking, but I decided to send the Queen of Halloween a halloween tag. I know she loves this paper from Craft Secrets. I've also seen one of our taggers with a background lately that reminded me of this paper. (Sorry, I don't remember who it was to give credit.) Anyway, I recreated the paper using orange cardstock, a text stamp from Hero Arts and then a small harlequin stamp from Technique Tuesday which I black embossed. Voila!
After that I proceeded to finish this pocket tag with a stamp by Queens Dresser Drawers which I embossed in white. I added a Halloween dance ticket inside the pocket.
Sorry, Kris, this tag won't reach you as a complete surprise, but I really wanted to share it along with this week's challenge.
