I love this tag. It's so soft and pretty! The little girl image is perfect on this piece. The soft background really makes the hearts pop out. Very nice! Thanks for the tag and for participating :)

Very pretty! So soft and elegant! I love how you matted the tag; it really showcases it doing that little detail!---great idea! I really like the writing--how you can barely see it---great effect!

Great job and TFS the details!

This is very pretty! I love your collage of images and the way the sentiment is featured. I also really like how you framed the tag in the pink color, it really adds a lot!

How pretty! Lots of 'technique' but the technique doesn't take over.

Terrific job, Christin!

I started by squirting Colorbox Burnt Copper pigment ink refill onto my craft mat, spraying with water and mixing a bit, then I cut a 6.25 x 3.175 inch tag shape from watercolour paper.
I stamped some Hero Arts French Script stamps with Versamark, dried and then swirled the tag through the watered-down ink.
When dry I stamped the girl (from Artistic Outpost, My Favourite Book) in Memento Sweet Plum, and the hearts (lightly) in Burnt Copper and Versacolor Bark.
I stamped the sentiment (Grant Archival) in Sweet Plum on cream CS and cut it out. I attached some plain twine to the base, and stuck the sentiment over the top.
Finally, I cut a slightly larger base from burgundy CS, punched a hole and then a reinforcement from the same colour, then tied some burgundy ribbon and extra twine through the hole.
Although the hearts ended up being a minor part of the design, the whole design was inspired by a larger script-patterned heart, which ended up being too big to fit on the tag.
