By the Sea Tag

I had fun getting nice and messing creating this "By the Sea" tag over the weekend.  I've been playing around with a new debossing technique and I think I finally got it down but more on that later (wink, wink).  Anyway, here is my tag!

It's got kind of tear drop shape because I layered a torn piece of cardboard on my tag.  To create this tag, I use the Paper Wings Productions July Nesting Components kit, Lindy's Stamp Gang inks, #10 tag, cardboard, molding paste, stazon, twine and the Cricut Stand & Salute cartridge.

I started out by applying molding paste to the tag and cardboard then stamping the fish stamp from the Seaside stamp set.  Next I spritzed everything with Lindy's Stamp Gang inks.

I cut the anchor at 3.5" using the Stand & Salute cartridge and then embossed it with Zig metallic embossing powder.  The embossing powder really gives it the look of iron don't you think?!  After that, I just wrapped some twine around the anchor.

I fussy cut a couple of the clip art images from the kit.

I added some of the beautiful embossing powder from the kit around the edges and some of the rubons throughout the tag.

I also tucked in some white washed Pink Paislee Luxe Circles from the kit and tied the gorgeous trim to the tag.  I love the irregular shape and all of the texture that I was able to work into this tag.   The sea theme of this kit is just so much fun to work with!!  If you'd like to pick up your own kit, visit the Paper Wings Productions online store HERE.   You could even pick up the Lindy's Stamp Gang inks I used on this tag there.

Well friends, thanks so much for joining me on this little trip down by the sea!  Have a beautiful day!!!!
