Joan's Gardens #16 Weekly Tag Challenge

And the winner of last weeks Tag Challenge is ~~~~~Linda P.  Congratulations Linda!!!  Please view her tag here.  Thanks to everyone who joined us for last week's Challenge


My tags for this week's challenge are different than any I have done before.  I have a new line of products that I will soon be introducing called Kanban. All of these items are foiled die-cut punch-out embellishments and are gorgeous.  There are many different designs too. All items are acid and lignin free.   My Granddaughters will love these and they were sure fun to design.

I started out with Ranger's tag an added several different distressed inks to get the right color.  I also added DG3 Art Gel (shown under tools) which gives the tag a classy look to go along with the embellishments.  Then I decided which embellishments I wanted to use and how I wanted them placed on the tag.  I loved the look when I was done.What do you think?They run between  $2.50 and $3.60 per package and there are lots of different designs.





Making your Tag: You have until Sunday, May 1, 9:00 PM to enter the Tag Challenge. Anything goes. You can make whatever kind of tag you want to make, any color, use any stamp...your own thing. Then once the time ends to enter a tag, the voting will start and will last until Tuesday morning May 3, 6:00 AM.
This is simply a fun thing and something to help you have tags for your gifts or even a tag to send to a friend. I know, I am sure enjoying it!!! I love making tags!


The weekly winner, (the tag with the most votes) will be sent an award badge to post on their blog which will show them as a winner. In June there will be a drawing for a grand prize that will be awarded to one of the weekly winners. Won't it be nice to have a head start on all those tags needed throughout the year! I'm looking forward to seeing all your creations. If you need help in posting your tag, please contact me by email or calling 574 656 3663.
