Sam's Debut tag

Not blogged for while but when Sam came up as Guest Designer, my little friend who has helped me to build my blog and help me with crafting in general then I couldn't not have a go.

I love her tag and admire her style and the way that she plays with different materials and techniques. You can tell that she just loves to play.

I started with  size ten tag and brayered like Sam but using Chartreuse and Bora Bora. Then I stamped a background using LPC022 and used Cornflower blue Archival. Finishing off with white pen highlights like Sam.

Next I made a tag from corrugated card and brayered some Bora Bora onto it. Stamped and cut out 3 faces also from LPC022 and stamped some circle patterns from LPC024.
I coloured with red pen around the faces and on the cheek and cut them out . I was going to colour the eyes red to match mine but thought that it was going for the sympathy vote a bit too much.
I stamped onto crunchy wax paper, scrunched it and glued it to the tag.
A bit of arranging and gluing and  few threads and Hey Presto….Back on the circuit. Feel a bit wobbly but pleased to mark Sam's debut!!


  1. Hi, Hazel - not sure you're meant to be crafting - hope you're taking care - but LOVE this, the colours are fabulous.

  2. Oh wow Hazel, way to go. Your tag looks stunning and that red really makes a statement. Thank you so much for your kind comments and I really am honoured that you'd found the energy to play along this week as I know how anxious you've been.
