Tag You're It! Challenge #67

Today's project is on a smaller scale than a regular card...a tiny tag! I love working on tiny canvases and when they are CAS, they're very quick! I made my tag for the "Tag You're It! Challenge", where you make a tag inspired by the work of the featured artist. This week's tag is by Marion Vagg, check it out...

I was inspired by the tag shape, the dies/punches, the boxed sentiment, the thin ribbon and the slight off the edge element with the dies/punches. I couldn't work my idea into a vertical tag, so I flipped it horizontally.

The whole red bird paired with black and white is one of my favourite colour combos and if I remember correctly I made a card quite a few years ago that had red birds too.
I used a mix of stamps and dies to create the tag and did some faux stitching along the edge with a black journaling pen.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
