Crafters cafe tag challenge

Last week I went to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party
and we did a gift exchange... I made some fabulous bath salts and sugar scrub for my white elephant
I also made this pretty tag.  
The Challenge at The Crafters Cafe
Is a to create a Tag.
I was in a major time crunch to get this little beaut done in time to scram out the door
first I stamped the background with perfect medium, and then I added some 
gold embossing powder and hit it with my heat gun.
That gave this really pretty flowery pattern.
Then I added the digital image which I had colored with my copics, 
and then cut out using my Big Kick and a Spellbinder's die
I added a little bit of color to the edges of the cut out, and then to the edges of the tag as well 
(I know you can barely see that color on the tag)
The flowers were added using pop dots, and the bow was hand tied and added to the bottom.
This tag was inspired by tag 12 at the funkie junkie... I loved Linda's gold embossed background, and that was my main inspiration for this tag!

Remember her challenge is being sponsored by her shop The Funkie Junkie boutique
Which is currently closed but will be reopen ing in January!
Please check out The Challenge at the Crafters Cafe!  I know you all are making tags to go on your perfectly wrapped gifts right??  Why not put yourself in a drawing for a fab prize while you're at it??

  1. Wow, Diana, that gold background is absolutely sensational! I really love the way it came out! Beautiful coloring on that digital image too! I'm so delighted that you decided to join in the fun with us this year for the 12 tags challenge. Congratulations on making it all the way to the finish line. Best of luck in the drawing next week and Merry Christmas to you!
