Tags, Tags, and More Tags!

Hi everyone! I'm here with another Think INK Tuesday Challenge from Artful INKables. Crystal Irwin is challenging us to make tags...any kind of tags. I recently saw a cute tag in a stamping magazine, and was thinking about making one similar to it. But then I got to thinking about a box of Avery tags that I had purchased to alter a log time ago, and decided to use some of these instead like I originally intended! I went through my AI stamps and looked for smaller images that would fit onto these approximately 2 3/4" x 2" tags. I pulled out South of the Border because of the Muchas Gracias sentiment and Holiday Treats and Tails for Christmas tags. These literally took me 30 minutes to make. They were plain white, and after I stamped and colored the images, I swirled some color on them with a soft brush and sponged the edges for more definition. I added star dust stickles to all the always makes them more special. I cut off the plain white string that comes with the tags and added this pretty red ribbon which was a scrap piece in my ribbon stash. Wouldn't these look so pretty on a bag or a box instead of the pre-printed ones that come with some bags? I think so!

So why not try one or two or three or four? LOL! You can post your direct link to Mr. Linky on the AI blog. If you use AI stamps, you get two entries! If you post to an online gallery, please use the code AIC07. Thanks for stopping in today!
