Altered Tag

Pinque Peacock Challenges & Link Ups
     Welcome ladies for our 5th Challenge: Altered Tags. Pinquette Mary here with my submission for this challenge and of course I used a layered Garden Beauties.  I already used a Splendid Swirls for my layout on the hop and knew I would use the Garden Beauty for my tag. before weget started I just wanted to include the link for where to find my personal favorite from this month's release: Nana's Pillowcase. They are absolutely gorgeous! You can find them at the Shop HERE . I digress, lol, Let's take a look at my tag shall we?

     I love how bold this flower is! For this tag I started with the flower and built everything around it. I started with a Tim Holtz manila tag as the base and found some cardstock with the same color and tiny pink polka dots on the background. It was perfect to do some heat embossing with this script lettering stamp.

   
     I found this saying in a my stash of quotes and loved the saying as well as the colors. Just a little matting with black and yellow to set the saying off but it still lacked something, but what? Well of course, BLING, duh!!! I had these perfect hot pink pearls and decided to off set them from each other. Why? It's because I am the artist, the creator of this project sooo...I can that's why, lol. My word of advice just try it. If you like it perhaps someone else will as well.

   
     Now it's coming together! I added a punched border and found this wonderful birdcage sticker and it seemed perfect for this tag. All there was left to do was to add some inking to the edges of the tag base, adhere and add some 3 girl Jam ribbon and there you have, my altered tag.
     Now it's your turn to enter this fun challenge. You can do that HERE. I can't wait to see what you create!
 I have entered this tag in the Anything Goes challenge @ 3 Girl Jam. You can enter HERE with your magnificent tag!
