Joans Challenge Tag Week

Good Morning Ladies,
I am up and at it. Dogs have been let out and fed. They are now waiting for me to finish this post so they can have their second round out. I will be at a dog show this weekend. I am not showing but it will be fun.
It's Joans Challenge Tag Week over at  So click on the link and come join us.
The requirements for this week is to created tags and they must use at least one thing you can purchase at Joan's. Fairly easy since this is my favorite place to shop. And Joan has the coolest dies around!
Here is my first entry.... Poodle Window Tag....
 I created this tag starting with a manillia tag base. The tag base was covered in Tim Holtz Broken China Distressed Stain. It was swiped in streaks over the tag. You can buy distressed stain at Joan's. I then stamped snowflakes randomly on the background using a tim holtz distressed ink pad. Joan has these also. My poodle dog was stamped on bristol paper from the art dept. and colorized with prisma pencil and gamsol. He was then hand cut. A piece of dsp from lost and found was cut with a Cheery Lynn die from Joan's. I placed this piece over the stained and stamped tag base. I added a little stickles at the bottom of the window to create frost. The poodle was then popped up in front of the window. Rolled flowers cut from a Memory Box dies were created to finish this tag off. The rolled flower dies can also be purchased at Joan's.
This is a second view just a little closer.
I love making tags and have not done many as of late. Tags give you a chance to try out new products and ideas in a smaller format. What a great challenge! Thanks Joan and Selma!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
