Over at Get Creative we have a few changes for you and one of them being the introduction of a new challenge theme. I am delighted to announce that every 15th of the month we will be having a tag challenge. I was so excited when I heard this as when I first starting my crafty endeavours tags where the first things I made and I thoroughly enjoyed making them.
So as it is our first ever tag challenge you have free reign to create whatever you like so no excuses lol !
This is a double-sided tag and I had so much fun getting inky and messy so much so that I made about ten of them ! A few months ago I bought the Fiskars Fuse Creativity system which for those of you that haven’t heard of it is a 12 x 12 die- cutting machine that can cut,letterpress and colour all at the same time. It’s a monster of a machine but it really does deliver. I firstly cut the tags and then coloured them with a variety of inks and a sponge, then passed them through the Fuse once again to deboss them. I then went over the debossed area with more inks and did a little stamping with some Archival ink. I made the butterflies from some of the other tags that I had made. I can honestly say I really enjoyed the process and quite like the result. So no moaning and whingeing from me for a change.
We would love to see you join our first ever challenge at Get Creative so why not pop over and see what my fellow team mates have come up with to inspire you all.
We are once again sponsored by Get Creative Embellishments .
Right am off to work, wishing all a wonderful happy and creative day
Beautiful tags Marie. I love the colours and the flowers at the top
Best wishes Chrissie xxx

Hi, there! I love love love the powerful colors!!! Thanks for your attempt to write me a comment for second time! Just to know that, after some odd comments I ‘d recieved, I turned on that adjustment that a comment must firstly get my approval to show! That’ s why you can’ t see your comment at once! Sorry and thanks!
These are stunning tags and I adore the little flowers at the top of them. Did you make them yourself? Vicky x
