Inky Impressions - Tag It Challenge

This week our challenge on Inky Impressions is to make a tag or make something with a tag. Each month there will be a fabby Inky goodie bag up for grabs. To be in with a chance of winning you must participate in each challenge for that month. 

For my DT submission I made a Tag with a Tag, lol. 

 I made the tag using kraft card and distressed it with brushed cordoroy ink. The music not paper is from a bundle of offcuts in my stash, not sure of the manufacturer, and it's also been inked. Behind the music paper I added some cream jute and then layered up with lace, scrappers floss and a flossed button. 

For the vellum tag I just disrtressed it with ink and used a Waltzingmouse Stamps sentiment. I'm not sure where I got these tags but they are by Craftime, and there are a few each of different sized white vellum tags in the pack. 

My image is Winter Marlee, but I've only used her head, lol. I covered my card with a piece of paper before stamping so that I only got to shoulder level onto the card. I coloured her using all earth tone copics - 

Skin: E00, 02, 21, 51
Hair: E50, 51, 43, 53
Hat/Scarf: E70, 71, 74, 77
Sweater: E40, 41, 42

Then I cut my image out using circle nestabilities and adhered it to the tag using 3D pop dots. 

This challenge will run until next Tuesday, January 25th Noon Eastern Time.
