August 2016 PTI Hop & MIM #258: Cover Plate Tags

 Sneaking in on this month's PTI Blog Hop & thought I'd incorporate the MIM challenge as well!

I've used a tag die & the bitty butterflies covreplate. The colors were achieved by watercolor shimmer paint as well as ombre ink along the top border. After cutting each piece I tried to ink/paint them in the same manner.
The spatters are acrylic paint. 
I heat embossed the 'smile' sentiment with clear powder after stamping it with navy ink. A few clear sequins and some navy twine finish it off!
I finally bought a little antique frog to hold my tags for photographing while we were finishing up our vacation in Poulsbo, WA. Love that little town!
Here's the inspiration pic:

Happy Hopping! 


  1. Oh, I love this, Jen! Wonderful take on the inspiration photo and on the MIM challenge!

  2. This tag would look striking attached to a simply wrapped kraft package! Love the details!

  3. What a pretty tag - really like how you added just a bit of color at the top and bottom. And the splatters are a great touch!
