Welcome to the first Sunday in March

Morning all,

Not really sure what happened to January let alone February and now we're told it's MARCH!

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all those mum's out there, enjoy your well deserved day of pampering!

I have a few birthdays coming up and have some gorgeous green and gold swirl wrapping paper but no tags to match ..... so, this morning's snippet challenge entry happens to be a few tags to accompany gifts wrapped in said green and gold wrap!

My batch of tags
The snippets, leftovers from two pieces of A4 once two 13½cm squares have been cut from each
One piece stamped with my  image and the other cut in to tags
Coloured with radiant pearls and twinkling H2O's
My tags swirled - to match the wrapping paper
The front and back of my tags
Materials used:
  • Snippets of white card
  • JOFY JM27 cupcake image stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Fiskars "TO" and "FROM" stamped on the reverse of the tag using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Radiant pearls in sugar plum and oyster shell used to colour cup cake image
  • Twinkling H2O in mustard green used, water colour style, to colourwash the background
  • Copic Atyou Spica glitter pens to highlight 
  • Faber Castell Pitt pen (SX thickness) to define the edges
  • Visible Image mini flourish (Craft Stamper free image sometime ago) stamped around the outer edge of the tags using Delicata golden glitz ink
  • JOFY sentiment from set 14 stamped using Versafine onyx black ink on to the back of the tag and across the stamped and coloured image on the front

I'll be entering this for the following challenges:-
  1. Pixie's Crafty Workshop - challenge No. 219 - SNIPPET CHALLENGE
  2. Creative Fingers - challenge No. 104 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Crafting with an attitude - challenge No. 13 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Simply Papercraft for all occasions - challenge No. 24 - ANYTHING GOES
  5. Friday Mashup - challenge No. 244 - USE A SHIMMER PRODUCT or COLOURS BELOW or BOTH

And the paper I was trying to match? I wanted to capture the spirit of the design as I knew I would struggle for an EXACT colour match, hope you all think I've succeeded or at least come close!

Enjoy your Sunday

Brilliant tags, they co-ordinate with the paper fabulously. You're so organised making tags to match, very impressed. Cara x

They are fantastic tags Kathy. That's a lovely Jofy stamp and I really like how you've coloured it. Great swirl backgrounds too. Barbxx

I think your tag swirls succeeded admirably in capturing the swirl design in your wrapping paper. Very clever idea that you had, and the tags are lovely. I really like the gold swirls on the mat, and what a pretty sentiment, enhanced by the luscious cupcakes! Hope your Florida weather is as gorgeous as we had. TFS & Happy Sunday.
