Tag Challenge #24


Last week was all about paper -- piecing, that is. Today's challenge (and I think it will be) is to create a tag without using ANY paper ANYWHERE! That means you have to create your tag out of something other than paper. For example, I used grungeboard to make mine. You may use chipboard or cardboard if you'd like. But no background papers, no paper ephemera, no paper embellies of any kind!
My tag: I added distress inks to my grungeboard background. I stamped on it with stamps from Oxford Impressions. I then dry embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Filed the grungeboard to let the dots show.
After that I added the ruler piece, the metal flower and some of the Tim Holtz film ribbon at the bottom (that stuff is too cool).
I'll have to throw some of that into next week's give-away. To see how to become eligible for that read the following post!

It's a lovely Tag indeed.

Can anyone participate in this challenge and do the tags have to be a specific shape or size?
