Tag it

Hi crafters,
There's a great new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week, our lovely Lorraine has chosen 'Tag it'.  A nice easy one, just add a tag to your creation!
We are kindly sponsored by Cowling & Wilcox this week and they are offering the lucky winner a 12 pack of promarkers (steam punk).
                                                        Cowling & Wilcox
My card for this challenge is a Birthday card for my Dad and he's always enjoyed a bit of DIY so this image was perfect for him.  It's a digi from Ella's Design which is on the Boys 2 Men CD.
I coloured the image with my promarkers to match his Black and Decker tools (other brands are available!) and used some papers that I got on Saturday (thanks Clare!).  I cut out a tag shape and embossed the top to add some texture.  I inked the edges with a 'Stormy Sky' Distress Ink.  I added some craft candy in matching colours as well as a saw charm that I've been saving for ages for one of Dad's cards.  (I wonder if he would mind me asking for it back sometime lol!!).
I also added some glossy accents to the image but my photography skills fail me I'm afraid!
So why not join in with this week's challenge.  Just make sure you use your Winsor and Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme.  I look forward to seeing your creations as always.
Hugs, Karen xx

I chose the top line for my card - polka dots, kraft, punches or dies and I made a new baby card for a friend.

I've used a gorgeous LOTV stamp which I've coloured in with my promarkers and I've added a variety of different die cuts to my card!  I was really chuffed when I found the little wooden teddy which went with the image perfectly!!  Forgot I had these little shapes!
There are some great cards by the Design Team to give you inspiration this week so why not join in with this great challenge!  You can enter using any type of creation, it doesn't have to be a card.  Just remember that to be eligible for the prize draw, you must use your Winsor and Newton (formerly Letraset) products and of course, follow the theme.

I'm looking forward to seeing your gorgeous creations!
Hugs, Karen xx
