RangerInk Link has reinstated the monthly challenge in the Yahoo group. This month the theme is to use Stickles (at least three) and our organizational skills. Well, I created a tag for Valentines day. I combined hearts, love, and Cupid for the tag. I cut a tag from Core'dinations paper, embossed it with hearts, and sanded the embossing. I adhered this tag to a manila tag for structure. I distressed the edges using victorian velvet distress ink and an edge distresser. I covered the entire tag with clear Rock Candy distress stickles (my favorite). The letters for the word love (unknown company) were stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder. They were cut out individually and adhered to the side of the tag vertically. A row of bling circles was adhered to the bottom of the tag and then heart gems were attached to the middle of the circles. Cupid and two hearts were die cut from a deep red paper. Cupid was covered with burgundy stickles and adhered with foam dots. The middle heart was covered with crystal ice stickles and the top heart was covered with worn lipstick distress stickles. The tag was finished by adding ribbon and a heart charm with the letters, l-o-v-e, hanging on it. With the embossing, the stickles, and the bling, this tag definitely has pizzazz.
The tag also qualifies for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge of using a charm and the Sweet Stamps challenge which is Love.
