Let's Play Tag
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. I hope you are enjoying your summer so far and are managing in the oppressive heat happening in many parts of the United States and Canada. For those of you in other areas that are not so hot, can I come for a visit to get some relief? Thursday, we had a humidex of 48C or 106F. Thank heaven for central air conditioning and for an air conditioned car.
This week our challenge to you is TAGS. You can create a single tag or put a tag on your card or other paper crafted creation. Don't forget we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge blog and would ask that your project be in one of those styles.
This week a random winner will receive a digi or our choice and a badge to display on her blog. The Design Team will also choose one project as Card of the Week and that creator will also receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.
Our designers have created some lovely tags for your inspiration and if you want to check out the details, just click on their names and you will be taken directly to their blogs.
I did some playing in Photoshop to create the pram in the background. I found a photo of the pram (sorry, I can't remember where) and then I chopped it out of the background, which was more work than I expected because I had all sorts of stray bits to erase. I changed the colour and I found some grunge brushes online and made it look scratched and sort of like a vintage stamp. It was fun to do but when you don't have a clue as to what you are doing, it can be time-consuming. Finally I printed it directly onto the floral paper.
