Challenge 40 on Allsorts blog is to include a tag, or label on a card and it just so happens that I've made a couple of cards with tags this week after reading an excellent tutorial on background techniques and tags in the Graphicus Guild newsletter. Adirondack dye inks and Perfect Pearls have been used together with stamps from Elusive Images and background paper from Artylicious. The rose on the tag was made from punched shapes using a small flower punch and being small it was seriously fiddly to make.


  1. Hi Aquarius

    What a beautiful card. It must have taken ages to make.

    I love your background paper and the tag is stunning.

    Thank you for playing along with my challenge at Allsorts this week.

    Love Jules xx

    p.s. be careful with the roses - they are addictive!! LOL!!
