The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew




Tag You're It! Challenge

Altenew is presenting a wonderful event highlighting challenge blogs, and Tag, You're It! is excited
to participate!  I hope you will join in on the hop.  All projects feature Altenew products and there are prizes to be won!

Here's my tag featuring two Altenew stamp sets with a lot of masking and partial die cutting:
 My tag was inspired by Tag, You're It! challenge #17 featuring Gayatri Murali's beautiful card:
Tag You're It! Challenge: Tag You're It Challenge #17:
I loved the arrangement of flowers and decided to imitate that with Altenew's Beautiful Day and Painted Flowers stamp sets.  My tag is basically one layer except for the sentiment.  I first stamped the outlines using the MISTI and masking.  I then stamped the layers of the main flowers and leaves and colored the rest with Copics.  It was at this point that I thought the Altenew inks would come in very handy!  I cut around the flowers and leaves and then partial die cut the tag.  The center flowers were cut around with a craft knife so the sentiment could slide on through.
Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Altenew Beautiful Day, Painted Flowers
Die:  Poppystamps Stitched Mainstreet Tags - 2nd largest
Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, HASI Red Royal, Pale Tomato, Soft Leaf, SSS Schoolhouse Red, W+9 Mojito
Copics:  R20, 22, 24, G20, 21, YG0000, 61
Paper: Scraps of unknown origin
Embellishments:  Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins, Paper Studio twine
