Edwin with Derbyhat


Today I have something different for you. It's not a card, it's not pink, it's not for girls, it doesn't have pink flowers ..... well, it's a tag for a man! lol

I wanted to do something with this Edwin ever since I bought it (a few months back), but just didn't have the right idea. When I was looking around blogland this morning I saw there is a paper piercing challenge at Magnolia mania and that was it!!! Here we go ...

For this tag I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design
  • stamps: Edwin with Derbyhat (Little London coll., 2013), Postmark & New York (With love coll., 2013)
  • dies: La-la land - stitched border, Cherry Blossom Branch Die, Magnolia Doohickey - Jungle leaves; Tim Holtz - townscape
  • flowers from I am roses
  • white lace
  • natural cord
  • metal telephone embellishment.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Bunny Zoe's crafts challenge: Flowers and charms
  2. Marvelous Magnolia: Flourishes
  3. Lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia: Use a charm
  4. Magnolia Mania (I WON): Paper piercing
  5. Creative inspirations: Tag it
  6. Crafty catz: Anything goes
  7. Divas by design: Anything goes with Magnolias
Hugs, t.
