I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

Tim Times Ten Challenge - Day 6

And on to day 6 we go.

Today's challenge is for you to make a gift card holder tag. The gift card pocket must have at least 2 of it's corners punched with a corner punch. You must show in your picture the "card" in the pocket. The tag must contain at least 3 handmade flowers (meaning no Primas or other pre-made flowers -- you must make the flowers yourself with paper/scissors/glue), a sentiment, and the background of the tag must be inked -- not covered with paper. You may use Color Wash or other spray type ink, or pull out your stamp pads and sponges. The inking technique for the tag background is your choice; however, the background must be created using only ink.

Check out the website for more details and to see the other creations:
For my tag, I used Coredinations Brown and Blue Cardstock. I use a MS punch ..Laurel Leaf PATP . My background stamp is one of the new TPS rubber stamps - Secret Garden Collage which I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I inked all of the edges with the same ink. The flowers are ones that I made with a flower punch and layered them about 6-7 flowers, rolled the edges under for the look that I want. They were sprayed with glimmer mist. I'm not sure if the shimmer shows up in the photo. I had to add a little bling. I created it so that it has 2 pockets versus one. The blue cardstock was left with the top open so that you could put the giftcard there, or it can go under the patterned background paper.

This shows the full tag with the gift card tucked under the background paper.

Now who wouldn't want to get a Michael's gift card.

Here is a close-up of the flowers with the glimmer mist.
