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!

     Good morning and Happy Mothers' Day my pretty Peacock's!  Pinquette Mary here hoping you are all enjoying your special day whether you are a Mother yourself, spending time with your Mom or having fond memories of your Mom in Heaven, either way I hope you have something special planned. Speaking of special, oh my goodness what great projects on this hop. If you just came from Kimberly then you are in the right place! Today I wanted to share with you an with a easy way to preserve those beautiful invitations you receive without ruining them and of course dress it up with beautiful Pinque Peacock supplies.

     I knew as soon as Jessica showed us the new products for the hop that Nana's Pillowcase would be my favorite and it is. The colors matched my grand daughters invitation perfectly and includes all the colors. Since chalkboard art is so popular now, my daughter used this invitation to the First Communion. Bold and yet soft enough for the occasion.
     In order to preserve all the info that was also included on the back of the card I decided to add a band of card stock, dress it up and tack it down on either side with flower brads. This way I could always remove it without damaging the card.

     I just love how soft this flower is and I couldn't believe how perfectly it goes with the card stock I had on hand. I also had some "spare" leaves hanging around and added some lace and this epoxy frame to really draw attention to the fabric Splendid Swirls flower. You can purchase them HERE
     Lastly, I needed something to balance off the lower right hand corner so I used a piece of lace for consistancy and I had an embellishment in the Mind's Eye stack I had but it needed something. Of course sparkle...bling... rhinestones... and...Stickles!!

     So there you have it a simple yet elegant way to save this wonderful card. It will be fun to look at this in later years. Be sure to hop on over to the ever talented Rebecca and be prepared to be inspired!
