Papertrey Ink AUGUST 2016 BLOG HOP CHALLENGE

Hello!
I'm Hopping along with the gals at Papertrey Ink:) for the  AUGUST 2016 BLOG HOP CHALLENGE.
And combining it with MAKE IT MONDAY #258: COVER PLATE TAGS.

Here are the makings of my tag:

  • I used the Cover plate and paper from MIM mini kit GARDEN GILD. The papers happen to have the perfect Colors to go with this month's Inspiration photo.

  • Placed the die just a bit above the Gold Foiled images on the paper to get a shadow effect.
  • Ran that through the BigKick with the Stitched Tag die.

I was able to get 3 tags from the A2 sized paper:))


The assembled Project:


  • I used the large tag for my finished project. 
  • Did some string art stitching at the top with gold metallic thread.. 
  • Cut some individual leaves and blooms to add to the top of the die cut cover plate portion for more visual interest.
  • Then chose some Chicken Scratch PP cut with the Noted:Scalloped Square die, trimmed and Watercolor paper die cut with the A2 Noted Scalloped frame.
  • The SCRIPTED die was cut from a Luxe Gold Adhesive Sheet and layered onto three pieces of CS cut from the same die to give it dimension.
  • Three Martha Stewart punched butterflies happily joined the floral party:)

Here is a close up of the string art stitching:

 I thrilled how this turned out:)
Thanks for stopping by!! Enjoy the hop!
