Tag - you're it!

I was lucky enough to win some stamps from Lost Coast before Christmas so I thought it only right to use one to play along with a new challenge!

The current challenge is "tags" - make a tag, use a tag on something else, use a stamped image of a tag... details here.

I went for an "office supplies" vibe with the pencil border stamp, a tag and some string. Black and white with just a tiny splash of colour keeps things simple.

The tag is stuck on with gel glue so it's raised just a little from the card base but is still plenty flat enough for regular postage.

Stamps:
Pencil tops Border (Lost Coast Designs)
Say It All (Hero Arts)

Paper:
Bristol board

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)

Other:
Stitched tag die (Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us)
Copic markers
Black Fineliner
Corner Chomper
White crochet thread
Pinflair glue gel

There are always prizes on offer in the Lost Coast/Carmen's Veranda challenge and there are still a few days to play if you fancy doing something taggy!
