Ruby's Rainbow: Tags


Good morning!  It's time for another fun challenge from Ruby's Rainbow!  This fortnight our challenge was chosen by Jacqui and I have to admit it was a tough one for me....  You see, I am not an out of the box thinker!  I really admire the tags that others design...but had a hard time coming up with a plan.  I finally decided to go with a birthday theme....

I used a fun Changito image...doesn't he look excited!  LOL  He is so darn cute!  I colored the image with pencils, used Nestabilities to diecut and layer, then added a some Swarovski crystals.  I used a PTI die to cut my tag out of DP, added some grosgrain ribbon, popped up my image and added a candle to finish.  I decided to re-purpose a Crystal Light container, so I covered it with number paper to carry out the birthday theme.  I forgot to take a picture of the top, but the lid is decorated with as well; I diecut a circle of DP and mounted it on a scallop circle.  This ought to come in handy; my daughter turns 14 later this summer, plus it always seems like there is always a birthday party for her to attend.  (She went to one last night and I was REALLY SURPRISED when she asked me if she could pick out a card for her friend!  You see, she usually makes fun of my hobby...I was touched that she wanted one of my creations!  I told her to pick anything she wanted....)

Image: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Selet, Berry Sorbet, and Dark Chocolate, American Crafts DP
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals, Wright's Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon, Berry Grosgrain Ribbon (my stash), Cake Mate Candle
Extras: Crayola's/Goo Gone, PTI Tag Die, Spellbinders Nestabilities, SU! Dimensionals

This is such a cute gift!! Love this Changito image. (I actually used a CHangito a few days ago!! Such a long time since I have used any of those images. I haven't blogged it yet, it has to wait a little bit longer before I can post it)

So Ivy picked a card from you! Woohooo!
