Hello tag

Hi everyone! The challenge over at Tag you're it! is pretty cool this week and I decided to give it a whirl.

To create the marbled effect on the white cardstock, I took distress inks in spun sugar and victorian velvet and applied them to my craft sheet. Next I applied some rubbing alcohol and let them blend together a bit then smooched the cardstock into it. I let it dry then cut out the tag. I also distressed the edges with more victorian velvet so that it would stand out a bit.

Flowers are punched out using a light yellow and white cardstock. Leaves are also done using a punch. The hello sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Seam binding is tied onto the top of the tag. 

Off to try a new restaurant for lunch. I've been seeing awesome reviews on FB for it so I thought I see what all the talk is about. Might have to hit Ben Franklin while I'm out. Thanks for stopping by!
