Don't Forget to "Tag" It!

You have another week to submit  your entry into my "Tags" challenge.  Everyone loves to decorate with tags.  Don't forget they can be stand alone tags, attached to a card or package, or a holder for tags.  Your entry may have a single tag or it may have multiple tags.

Remember if you cannot find the current challenge,  that you can always find the shortcut to the current challenge at the top of my sidebar.

Now let's take a look at some additional ideas the Design Team has for the challenge.
My tag uses three images from Gecko Glaz.  I put a little "zing" on my mannequins,  One has a border punch around the waist, another has some red rafia around the waist, while the third has three punches out dots on the chest and a flower at the bottom.  The images were put on a tag made from a sheet of a legal pad.  Also on the tag were pieces of paper trim and measurement notations.  Some twisted yarn and feathery yarn were attached at the top.

I am also entering this into Simon's Stamp and Show's "Anything Goes".
I made another tag using an image from our challenge sponsor Vintage Image Madness. This very dramatically attired actress is reaching out for something -- so I gave her a butterfly! My blue tag is stamped with a french script stamp from Stampin Up and I've added designer paper and embellishments. I anticipate making this tag into a triptych later, but one tag at a time!

I have 2 tags for this week - the first uses images from Lisa's Altered Art and has been made in shades of "white". I just love this young lady and her "oversized" hair bow!!
My second tag uses a beautiful gypsy image from Dezinaworld along with patterned paper scraps and a little gold leaf charm. I used little tiles to amke the word "Dream".
A sweet lady adorned with flowers - an image from Prima Marketing stamped on Scrapcake paper. The embellishments are some crochet lace, a Prima Marketing flowers, some pearls and a little label. The image is layered on corrugated card which is slightly covered with Distress Stains.
Hi you all, Valerie here. The background paper for both tags is a freebie from Free vintage digital stamps. The steampunk trunk and animals on the first tag is an image from Inka Heaton at *Altered Artifacts*, the other images are from my stash.
Have a good week you all!

I am excited to have as my sponsor for this challenge Vintage Image Madness. Casie's site has a huge supply of one of a kind vintage images. You will have to go to the link above and visit her site. The images are very affordable and she even has a subscription plan if you wish to get a number of images.
