A Spoon Full of Sugar - Tags

Well it's been a little while since I had some creation time but I managed to have a little play during half-term for our challenge today over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. This week the lovely Ingrid is asking you to create a tag... or to incorporate a tag somewhere on your card.

I used the adorable High Hopes stamp Peeking Kitty with sentiment "Cat's Meow". For a change I dusted off my Prismacolor pencils and used paper stumps and odourless white spirit to blend. I stamped kitty twice and the second time just coloured her paws so I could cut them out and pop them back on after adding the fence. The fence was cut using Martha Stewart punch edger fence. The pretty die cut behind the image is Marianne D Creatable Doily. I also added a little jute for added texture. The jute is now available in 7 colours over in my store. To finish I added a little stardust stickles to birdie's flower.

My tag also fits the current High Hopes Challenge where Debby is asking you to create for a females birthday. Still lots of time to play along!

As well as tons of inspiration from the High Hopes designers be sure to check out the awesome tutorials... this week Karen is showing you how to create a Paper Toil Flower.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
