October Diva Dare ~ Day 6

Tag, You're It, October Diva Dare

Morning Verve friends! It's Andrea checking in today on this lovely Friday morning with  Verve's monthly Diva Dare challenge which is in full swing...this month's theme is called "Tag, You're It!" Your project can either be a tag, or inspired by one. I love to make tags every now and then...I feel like I have much more control over the size of the 'canvas' to fill. I've got two tag projects to share today, one in my predictable shabby chic/girly/vintage style and the other in a fun, festive Halloween theme. First up is girly....


I stamped and cut out the butterfly from Verve's Each Day stamp set twice, inked up the edges and sparkled them with some coarse glitter. I then mounted one on top of the other with some dimensional tape.


To Maja Design's Vintage Autumn Basics collection paper, I added pearls, flowers, lace and crocheted stickers.


Then I decided, appropriately so, that since it's October, I would go with a Halloween theme. This tag features Verve's Boo to You stamp setPolka Dot Basics & Summer Sailing Ribbon collections:


I glittered up the cute little ghosts after inking up their edges:


The ghosts are mounted against a medallion made with Ranger's Rosette die and to finish off the look, I added a perimeter of Platinum stickles:


 These flowers were on clearance at Michael's and I've been hoarding them...until now:


I thought that the Polka Dot ribbon looked great against the orange flowers:


Ok, now you can check out the deets....
