Tag, You're It

Hi all. I am here to do the last challenge for Love To Scrap that I can enter for prizes. Why is it my last? I am excited to say that I have been invited to be a permanent Design Team Member!! Whoot, Whoot!

Any way, when I saw the challenge on their blog, I didn't think I would have enough time to get a tag done, but I put my other projects on the back burner and decided to give it a whirl. I was looking at different blogs last Friday and saw someone do a fantastic black and white. Since that is also our theme for my February card club meeting, I decided to try my hand at it. Here is what I came up with.

I was really pleased with the results. Now I just have to do 13 more for Card Club. I have to add a splash of red for Club, so I am switching out the black baker's twine and sentiment for red ones. I also decided to change the stickles that I used on the flowers. I used Frosted Lace, but it didn't make it very sparkly. I switched to Stardust.  Here are some close-up pics:

You can't see the stickles at all, but if you look closely you can see the Mr. Huey Color Mist that I used on Tilda's wrap and the the heart. I must tell you that the fiber I used is some that I have had for at least 8 years. It is one of the first ones that I ever bought when I first started scrapbooking. I thought it was really pretty, but then just never had the desire to use it very often. The list of what I used on this tag is as follows:

Tag: Cut using Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge cut at 5"
Image: Magnolia's Tilda Captures Stars
Dies: Magnolia Doohickey Heart Swirl
Punches: Creative Memories 1" heart punch
Sentiment: Close To My Heart "Wonderful You" Set
Ribbon: Glitter Tulle, Baker's Twine, White Lace Ribbon Tape (J & Bobbin), Patron Allure Yarn "Diamond"
Flowers: White Paper Roses by Mikie's Favor Embellishments
Stickles: Frosted Lace
Ink: Memento Black
Markers: Distress Black Soot (stitching), Copics E0000, E00, E21, R20 (skin), C1, C3, C5, C7, C9 (hair and wrap)
Misc: Mr. Huey Color Mist "Shine"

I am entering the following challenges: Bling It Up (I used Glitter Tulle, Stickles, and Shimmer Mist) Anything Goes + Option Use Real Ribbon Celebrations (I'm celebrating my wonderful friends at Card Club) Use Text Stamp w/ Edwin or Tilda
