I Should Be...


I should be ice fishing (brr....), I should be cleaning (bleh....), I should be doing something else but the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Tag Challenge was too tempting! I teamed the tag designed by Alli Miles up with the colors from the Playing In Paradise Challenge (thanks, and congrats Dana!) to make a clean and simple design. The tag was printed on cream paper, the petals colored with a copic marker and the center with a maroon marker and covered with glossy accents. Its attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

I suppose I put off cleaning long enough! I'll be back later tonight for a nice surprise.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Ivory) Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper: (Lil' Miss Collection) Pebbles
Stamps: (Digital Flower Tag) PTI, (Sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages) PTI
Ink: (Onyx Black) Versafine
Other:(Saddle Stitched Ribbon) SU, (Gold Marker) Copic, (Maroon Marker) SU, (Glossy Accents) Ranger
Tools: (Corner Round Punch) WR Memory Keepers

  5. I knew you wouldn't be able to resist, and your take is great. Since you've already had your own stamps made a set at PTI would be just another fabulous line on your creative resume. The cleaning can always wait.

  24. This card embodies your style so well to me Karen. Clean yet graphic, not too bright, but never dull. Perfectly adorned, but not excessive.
    You rock.
