TSB Challenge #17 Tags

Happy Weekend everyone.  Sorry my post was delayed a day.  This week at The Stamping Bazaar we have a fun challenge for you.  TAGS!  You can make just a tag or a tag that's on a project.  This challenge was a little difficult for me as I don't do many tags.  But I loved how it turned out and I think I will be doing them a lot more.  This is such a fun project to hand out a gifts in a card.

For my tag I used the "Louisa" image.  She is colored with promarkers.  The papers are from Basic Grey - Hopstotch 6x6 pad.  The flowers are cut out using the same collection.  The gems are from Stampin' Up. 

Now head on over to The Stamping Bazaar Blog and check out what the rest of the DT did.  Remember you have until Wednesday 11:59PM EST to enter.  Happy Crafting!!!

Whoot!!! For the month of February I will be a Guest DT at Pollycraft so check back here every Monday!  I was really happy when Paula sent me the invite.  I just love the Pollycraft images and when I found out she also sells Promarkers it was a match made in Heaven.  Both her images and markers are super affordable.  You can go here to the store and check it out for yourself. 

The challenge this week is using a Sketch but there's a twist, there is a Love Theme.  Here is the sketch.

For my card I used the super cute image "Duck Love".  I used the Tombows ABT markers with a watercolor brush on watercolor paper.  I have been asked which type of watercolor paper I use.  It is Cold Press and I always use Strathmore.  The papers are from Bo Bunny - Crazy Love collection.  I can't believe how many cards I have whipped up with this collection.  One of the best collections for Valentine's out there right now.  The flowers are from I Am Roses.  The gem swirls are from Zva and colored with promarkers.  That gorgeous lace ribbon is unknown.  The ticket is from Whimsey Stamps.  TFL!
