A tag for a change

I used to make tags as if they were going out of business - I loved making them, but unless I could find a swap to take part in, they never actually got USED for anything so in time I lost interest. However this week the challenge at CD Sundays is to make a 6" x 3" tag, so I had to dust off that corner of my imagination and get tagging.

The backing paper and topper I used are snippets left over from a previous project, printed from the My Craft Studio "Flawless Florals & Sentiment Toppers" CD which I think came as a Create & Craft Club freebie a couple of years ago.

The bird cage is actually one panel of a box intended as a wedding favour - I've added a touch of sparkle by gently painting it all over with a product called Opal Dust which has lurked in my stash since before the invention of the wheel.

  5. A wonderful creation Jane. Your Opal dust sound a bit like the Oofle dust I use on parchment. Actually it is Glamour dust but Oofle sounds more magical.
