Shaped Tag for Tag Tuesday


Louise has challenged Tag Tuesday participants to create a shaped tag this week. She has a beautiful star backing up a snowman for her own tag. This poinsettia image was sitting out with stamping supplies I hadn't put away for the year....it's one from Eureka that I hadn't inked yet. I decided to stack three of the images into a tag shape, stamping and heat-embossing the poinsettias on 90 lb. watercolor paper before coloring with watercolor markers. After cutting out the images, I covered them in Versamark and clear-embossed them, adding gold Stickles to the centers at the last. This poinsettia tag is 6 inches long and 3 1/4 inches wide.
