JustRite "Tag, You're it!" Challenge

I have not made a dozen tags in my scrapping "career".
They are something that I normally find restrictive, or limiting.

So, it was with great trepidation that I grabbed my
stamps and started in...

Not so bad, actually.
A tag is just a small card with the sentiment written on the backside...

I have been waiting for the chance to ink up the
lighthouse from
I'm not quite ready to stop making summer cards, and embrace the holidays just yet!

I pulled out all the "goodies" for this one!
The pattern paper is Graphic 45, "Playtimes Past",
The mica and glittery "sand" is Stampendous,
The cord is from my Hobby Lobby stash, and the starfish is actually a REAL dyed starfish that I covered with clear embossing powder!
I found a piece of OLD, OLD Rusty Pickle paper that looked like weathered blue fence for that little bit of background.


I also chose to mat the lighthouse stamp in red with
Spellbinders, "Labels Twenty-Two",
just to change it up a bit.

I love the way the JustRite stamps pick up every little detail, especially when heat embosssed!  I also swiped over the whole image with VersaMark
and clear embossed that to look more like a bottle label.


So much fun!

LOVE that corrugated tag, Jan, and how you've heat embossed the JR stamp. Your real star fish, sweet little banner and sand all add up to a FABULOUS tag!!!
