Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day! Hope you’re not too cold wherever you are… we woke up to 1 degree this morning and they say it feels like -14 degrees out there, lol! So it’ll be a cozy crafting kind of day for me today! I’ve popped in this morning with a super fun tag I created using the Twistoon Margarita digital image! The Twistoon Digi Stamps Facebook February Progressive Challenge is underway and this image is being offered free to challenge participants, so go check it out! As I have mentioned before, if you love twisted cartoon images, this is the place for you! I literally LOL’d the entire time this tag was in the making – this chick obviously spent a little too much time in the tanning bed and used a little too much Sun-In hair lightener on her hair! Remember that stuff?! Bahahaha!
First of all, I scanned the image and cut it with my Scan N Cut. My cardstock must have shifted because it was ‘off’ slightly when it cut but I thought it added to quirkiness so I went with it! I cut four more shapes and adhered them on top of one another for a nice thick image which you’ll see in a moment. I colored the image with Bic Mark-It markers and embellished it slightly with a white paint pen.
I cut a 3×5 tag and ‘stamped’ with bubble wrap over the front of it with dried marigold distress ink which created a nice subtle background that didn’t take away from the image. I created a sentiment on the computer and printed it on 60# Hammermill copy paper, trimmed it and layered it on red textured cardstock, and adhered it across the bottom of the tag. I created tag hole reinforcements for the front and back using 1/2″ and 1/4″ circle punches, and then looped red, orange and white ribbon through the hole and tied it with bamboo cord. I adhered the image to the tag and finished it with several tiny iridescent gemstones.
I told you this image was thick – five cardstock layers thick! ;)
And one more look… this was SO fun to create – from too much time in the tanning bed to Sun-In hair lightener overkill! I really DID laugh out loud the entire time! ;)
