A Quick Tag

Welcome

I would like to welcome Annabel Lee as my latest follower - her blog is here
(She writes in Spanish, but Google will translate)

This was a quick tag to make, I didn't have much time, so was very pleased that it did come together very quickly.   
We have a small group of women at church who meet once a week, and we celebrate each others birthday with a small gift (there is a price limit), and this tag was needed for that!



I cut the tag using a Paper Rose tag die


Embossed the sentiment useing Wow Metallic Gold Sparkle ep., and the rubbed the edges with 
versamark ink and dipped them in the ep, and heated.  Unfortunately the heat gun blew some of the poweder over my desk...


The poppies - Memory Box Prim Poppy - were already cut and were in the pocket the die was in, so I decided to use them, and tapped them in the ink, then into the spilt powder... loved the results.


The above photo  gives an indication of the sparkle that the embossing powder I used


And here it is attached to the gift.
