My First Real Tag!

I don’t know why I’ve had such an aversion to tags up until now.  I liked them when other people made them.  I just couldn’t see myself being able to make attractive ones.  But I’ve been really inspired by some of the tags Alex has been making lately, so I thought to myself: “Self, you really need to try to make a tag.  Sooner rather than later.”  So I did.  And this is how my first real tag turned out…




I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix folder to emboss the brick pattern.  Then I realized I didn’t have any yellow colored Distress inks, so I used a Copic instead to make it look like a yellow brick road.  The “good witch bad witch” stamp is from Artful Illusions.  The paper is from Graphic 45.  The metal hands pointing in different directions are from my stash.  And the awesome Dorothy digi is from The Octopode Factory shop.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:  TOFF #6 Girls Girls Girls

Thank you for looking!  Hopefully I will continue to get better at making tags!:)
