The challenge this week at Delightful Challenges is to USE A TAG ON YOUR CARD. This is my last card as a designer for Delightful Challenges as I am stepping down from the design team. I want to thank Wendy Hall for the wonderful opportunity and her lovely friendship. Thanks also to the rest of the team for their friendship and I plan to continue lurking around their blogs to see what they are up to and I hope they will visit here once in a while.
The sponsor this week is our own Digital Delights by Louby Loo with a $10 gift certificate to the store.
I had fun making this card and tried something different. The tag is hand cut from a piece of plain blue card stock. Then I sponged a couple of distress inks randomly over it and spritzed it with water. The result was this cool mottled look, which really came alive when I embossed it.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers - Embossing
Paper Sundaes - Pop It Up
