Tag your it!

As both my DT duties are the same weekends (at the moment)
I am having more time to just play along with challenges.
Today I am incorporating 4 challenges;

 I haven't made a tag for ages!!!
Creating your own background is way easier than most people think.
 I had this piece of card that I had just been testing
 my mini ink pads on to see if they still worked...
so base layer already done :D
 I've been seeing "background segment" stamps for sale.
I have background I "segmented" one.
 I chose a piece of the "ink blocked" card...
 and over-stamped with the  segments,
before blending with distress inks.
 Pretty easy to select colours for my image using the backgorund
as a guide.
 Then I remembered the "stitching part lol
So I over-stamped again with stitch stamps from
Joanna Sheen's Haberdashery collection.
 Then it was just a matter of colouring with my promarkers,
tearing into a tag shape and adding embellishments :D

So why don't you go try making your own background..
it doesn't have to be a messy process all the time :D
