Friday Focus

A tag card to share today.

It's a double challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch this week as they've joined up with a new challenge blog at Tag You're It. So I've used their layout and a tag, but I'm also entering my card into CASology's theme of stripe and The Male Room's theme of using pink.          Grab our button for your blog

The first thing I did was to die cut a stitched tag and then out came the Gorgeous Grunge stamps again.  I double stamped them to give two tones of the same colour.

My pink element is the sprinkle of hearts using just one half of a Clearly Besotted stamp and once again double stamped. Can you see where I caught the edge of the stamp by the grey sprinkles? I decided not to re-stamp as I thought it sort of matched the grungy style anyway.

Next I stamped the sentiment thinking the 'me' and 'you' would represent the two figures from the sketch. I then stamped a trio of open hearts to highlight and draw your eye towards the sentiment.

I finished off by stapling a ribbon to the tag and attaching it to the base card with foam pads.

Stamps: SU, Gorgeous Grunge; Clearly Besotted, Design A Tree
Inks: SU, tempting turquoise, melon mambo; Memento, London fog
Die: Lil'inker, Anytime Tags
Embellishments: ribbon from my stash; mini staple
