Wedding Tag...

 New challenge goes live at 613 Ave C this morning - ATG/Optional Twist of a Wedding Stationery Item.  They are looking for tags, cards, mini albums, bags, boxes, invitations, etc.  Lots of wiggle room here!  This is a two week challenge so you have time to get something made up for the June weddings in full swing!  If you need some inspiration - check out the ideas of the Front Porch Gang at 613!
Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring this challenge and is providing the winner with SEVEN digital stamps!  That is a generous prize!

  • "Balloon Bundle" was provided for my use by Bugaboo Stamps.  
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give it dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • The sentiment "Celebrate" is a very old red rubber stamp that is not ID'd as to the source.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • SU Punch used to shape the tag base at the very top.
  • The fabulous silver Ribbon is sewn down the middle with elastic and is from my hoarded stash!  
  • Duo Glue / Gold foil for confetti.
  • Platinum EP used for the highlights on the balloons.
  • "Egyptian Gold" EP from Judi-Kins used for the sentiment.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Shadows were hand colored with Copics Cool Greys.
