DT project for Crafty Catz

Hi sweeties....

This weeks theme over at 
is a great one! 

We want to see 
bags or tags

We got two lovely sponsors this week
A big THANK YOU to

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.
Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects, or visit our blog they use nothing but ribbon.  Go on, have a try... It's worth it !

Challenge Blog


Digistamps4Joy SHOP

South African crafters are new to the digital stamping world, with the first South African online digital image store launched in 2010 – Digistamps4Joy (or DS4J) In May 2012, Margy Kieser took over ownership of DS4J, and there are now two South African artists who contribute to the more than 500 images available. Margy has taken the store to new heights and the store now stocks digis that are cute, whimsical, artistic, sometimes serious, and sometimes humorous. In addition, one of our own South African rubber stamp companies granted us permission for one range of rubber stamps to be converted into digistamp images. The store has PAYPAL, PAYFAST (South African) and EFT (South African) facilities. Digistamps4Joy offers a monthly freebie on the first Friday of every month, and holds regular bi-weekly card challenges that draw entries from many international card makers.

I used one of the sponsored images to make this tag

I used a bigger Prima tag and then coloured the image with my ProMarkers and Faber Castel pencils. Used a metal spoon bought at a second hand shop. I also added some lace from Marianne Design, flowers and butterflies punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. A bit of a cheese cloth and some yellowy rhinestones. Last of all I added some copper coloured stickles around the image. I have also aged the tag and image by adding some chalk around the edges.

I would like to enter this tag into following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Let´s make it Anything Goes
Chalk N Stock - November Challenge - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenge - Anything but a card
Lady Anne´s Challenge - More than one layer
Loves Rubberstamps #79 - Shabby Chick or Vintage (hope this is vintage enough)
