Tag: Use LACE!

And thou shalt put it on a blue silk LACE,
 and it shall be upon the mitre,
 even upon the forefront of the mitre shall it be.
Exodus 28 : 37  (GNV)

Welcome to Thursday Totally Tags ‘n’ ATCs over at!  Every Thursday we on the Design Team will do a team post featuring Tags n' ATC's.  We will have a specific Theme each week featuring an element, technique or embellishment.  We’ll all come up with something excitingly different – using various types of tools, etc. to create our projects...i.e., Cricut, CAMEO, Spellbinders, punches, stamps, paint, material, lace, inks, etc.   The sky's the limit!  The only restriction...  If we use SVG's or Digi's, we will only use those from the vast selection at PCW.

Spring is a time of "new beginnings" and we love to see things "take root, blossom and grow”, we decided it was a good time to announce some changes to our Challenges and Link Ups.  Here is the link to Melin’s explanation of how things will work now.  Be sure to pop over there and be included in the creative fun! 

The Theme for this week’s projects is ‘LACE.’  I LOVE lace in all manner of ways – in, on, under, showing, not showing, even in cooking sometimes (Lacey Praline Cookies!) – I’m just a Lacy, Feminine Gal and always have been!  Making a Tag which incorporated Lace was a Treat and no problem for me -  ;-}   (Hahh!  Until I started working on it! )  Ideas have been swarming my brain and I knew the minute I saw one of Melin’s newest cutting files that I wanted to use it for this, I knew the colors I wanted to use and then when I looked for a relevant Verse to use at the beginning – something which I attempt to do for each post I’ve ever written – and I discovered the one above, I knew it was all going be all right.  There were some ‘technical difficulties,’ but I Persevered (my ‘WORD for 2013’) and am pleased with the final outcome.

*  I used two of the three layers in the file for the tag itself – the taupe Lacey layer - and the light blue inset layer.  I stamped the inset with a lace stamp inked with ‘Beige Opalescent’ ink and I inked the edges, also.  You can see the glimmer of the ink in this photo.

*  The large flower, tiny flowers, leaves and sprigs are punched and formed with an embossing tool.  The large flower center is a rolled rose made from light blue lace hem tape.  I added pearls to all flower centers. 

*  I made a double bow from the hem tape and adhered it to the top.  I added a twine loop to the top of the tag.  I can add a sentiment to the back side at a later time, depending on what and who I decide to give it to.

Here is the file I used -
