Set Sail Tag with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie here today and I am sharing another bit of inspiration for our challenge this month - Tag It!

I chose paper #106 from the Anchors Aweigh collection as the main back drop for this tag.  I love the lightly drawn ships on the light green cardstock!  I cut it slightly undersized and then backed it with a full size navy tag cut from paper #107.

I stamped the male figure onto a neutral cardstock and trimmed him out.  His clothes were then stamped unto other papers from the same collection.

When I cut the clothes out I made a point to cut just a tiny bit outside the line and used a black marker to darken the edges.  That way when I layered the clothes onto the male figure they completely covered the clothes beneath.

Next I added die cut words & an arrow, a stamped sailboat, and a ticket from the Anchors Aweigh Chipboard Die Cuts!

I decided to custom color a ribbon to use on the top of my tag. First I, pulled the ribbon across the Peach Tree PowderPuff Chalking Ink pad. I spritzed water on my craft mat, swirled the ribbon in it to more evenly distribute the color, then dried it with a heat gun. I repeated the process using the Aqua.

When I tied the bow at the top of the tag, I trimmed the ends and used Zots adhesive to hold the tails in place.

Be sure to get your entry in the Tag It Challenge #62 by April 25th to be eligible for a chance to win!
