Tag a Day project 9

Hello everyone, welcome and I hope you are having a good week so far!

My Tag a Day project is slowly reaching it's conclusion and I want to say again how much I have appreciated all of your support during the last couple of weeks. I am starting to feel much happier in my crafting again and if ever your mojo is low, I highly recommend something like this, just let go and play!
Now onto my tag, to be honest, I really don't like this one, and almost did not show it at all, for some reason it was also really hard to photograph, something kept going wrong with the colours...But then for me this whole project was about the process, not the result, so here you are, warts and all so to speak....
It's another one with a little pocket. Background like usual a mix of Distress Paints and Inks. Stamp is from Indigo Blue. I stamped it several times and fussy cut the flowers and butterfly to add more dimension and also to decorate the pocket.
The leaves are from the Tim Holtz  Autumn Gatherings die which has been on my wish list for ages and I finally went ahead and got it. I added the embossed bits with a stylus. The little tag was cut with an ancient old Cuttlebug die and enhanced with a Tim Holtz ticket. Here are some more detailed photos and I do hope you are not getting too bored with these tags, - 3 more to go....




Oh and just in case you have not seen this, I am hosting a little giveaway over at The Artistic Stamper, all you need to do is leave a comment there and here and you could win three colours of Distress Paints.

Thank you for visiting and have a good week


I am adding this to the Indigoblu challenge where the theme is Flowers

You know Astrid I've looked for those warts and I really can't find them. What I see is a beautiful tag with a great little pocket, fabulous flowers, leaves and butterfly and some gorgeous colours. Funny how we don't see what someone else sees. Great job.

Another great tag here Astrid. I love all the details you always manage to get into them, and always finds ways to show new things and ideas on them. This is awesome too.

Good Morning Astrid. This is one magnificent tag. I love all the colours and I might just take your idea and try a little pocket. The image and all the floral arrangements are just stunning. What talent you have. Hugs Rita xxxxx

Hello dear Astrid!
I don`t know what about this wonderful tag, you don`t like!!!!!
I think your lillac and rose/abricot together are so very impudent? (can I say that?)- LOVE it- the leaves and flowers are gorgeous, and love the stamp,too!!!wonderful with your pocket and embossed places... So I can`t agree with you, lol.
Wish you a lovely tuesday, here it rains, and we sooo need it for the garden :-)

Ah, Dear Astrid, even when you believe your creations to be less than acceptable, they are so much more beautiful than what most of us can create that we love them entirely. Keep the faith in yourself and press on.

Be Blessed!

More fabulous colour and that stamp from Indigoblu is so beautiful.

TTS and hugs

Diana said...

Dear Astrid, What a lovely tag this is. I have enjoyed all the tags you have done so far. The colors of this tag are awesome. I will miss the tags when you are finished. I will remember to use your ideas when I lose inspiration. A great idea.

butterfly said...

Nope... I'm having trouble finding warts, I'm afraid! The layering of the decoupaged flowers and butterflies works brilliantly, and the detail of the stylus embossing on the leaves is fabulous (glad you treated yourself to the die - I think it's a wonderful one), and the colours are so fabulous... I especially love that ribbon on the inserted tag, picking up the colours of the flowers - yum!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
