Tags, Scraplings, and a Recycled Item!

Hi everyone ~
This month at Virginia’s View it’s a Tag and Scrapling Challenge with a little twist ~ we should use a ‘recycled’ item! So, here is my tag: 





Please excuse the dark photo. We've had a lot of rain and overcast skies, so I had to use my light box. 

So, to create my tag, I used leftover cardstock from my stash, die cuts that I had set aside from previous projects, and for my recycled item, I used twine that was wrapped around supplies I ordered from an online store. I used distress inks to create a sky for the window, and stenciled the stars with white pigment ink. I had a lot of fun making this tag, and I plan to use it to attach to a gift.

So, that’s it for me ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!

Barb

This is such a cute tag. You have packed a whole lot into such a small space, and yet it does not look crowded at all--rather quite inviting.
