Hi again with a tag for the current Lost Coast Designs Portal to Creativity challenge:  Tag You're It!  Simple challenge for the first half of February - just make a tag in any theme you like and be sure to include some rubber stamping on your work.

For this tag, I used the Butterfly Set stamps - the set includes 5 stamps but I chose to use the three smallest for this tag.

I stamped my butterflies onto a piece of clear acrylic using Stayz On black ink so the stamped images would not smear, then cut this into a tag shape.  For my background, I took a page from a vintage book and using Modge Podge, I adhered to it a decorative paper napkin with leaves and branches.  After that dried well, I glued my acrylic tag atop it and trimmed around the edges.  I thought it needed some kind of defining border, so I layered it with a tag shaped piece of black card stock. 

Final touch was to punch a hole in the top and thread a variety of ribbon and twine in colors of gray, cream and silver.  I love the way the butterflies on the acrylic let the background of the paper napkin show through.

So get your tags and stamps and art supplies out and see what kind of amazing tags you can whip up!
