3 Colors & a Tag

Finally had time to play to enter the Mod Squad Challenge . Although black and brown are not colors I usually use together, I was afraid the tag would be my undoing. Yesterday I went to one of our two remaining stamp stores in the area and found a wonderful gingham stencil by Newton’s Nook. I used GKD Warm Cocoa ink on GKD Heavy Weight Ivory – close to cream IMHO to create the background. I matted it with Black Onyx and used an Ivory card base. The tag dies I had were either too big or too small, then I found this one that came with my Gemini Jr. and it was just right. I cut apart the birthday sentiment from Massive Message to fit the tag. I decided the tag needed something else, so I drew around the outside of the die on Warm Cocoa CS and fussy cut a mat. I really like how this turned out and will probably be making more to use for masculine cards.

  1. What a super plaid background. You qualify for the 2nd best person to make plaid – Bonnie is the first – sorry. Love how this turned out and your tag is perfect. In the past when I haven’t found a die that fit something I wanted I’ve created it on the computer in a graphic program or adapted something found online. You might want to consider that for a future effort.
