DCM - Tagged

This week's challenge was set by Rhi: Everything we buy has packaging, some of it excessive, some of it beautifully designed. Tags, labels, stickers... all sorts of bits and bobs that we can recycle onto cards.

I dare you to make a card using a tag, label, sticker or anything else you can find, thats from packaging and would normally end up in the bin. Of course you can ink it, change it, distress it and add anything else you like!

If you're feeling brave, I DOUBLE DARE you to make it a card for a man!

This is what I came up with:

On a white hammered base card, I stamped Rhonna Farrer Flourish V:I swirls in: mustard/green/brown/black and gold inks. This ended up looking far too stark, so I chalked a couple of shades of brown to tone the contrast down a bit. Onto some brown textured card, I randomly stamped a gold Penny Black Happy Birthday greeting and inked the edges. The leather, chained tag came from my work safety boots which I mounted onto some pearlescent card smudge stamped with the same colour inks as before and randomly stamped with the Happy Birthday stamp. This was mounted onto some gold then onto some of the brown textured card. And voila! A man's tagged card - double dare accomplished!
