It's a Man Thing is winding up as the week's theme at Tag Tuesday.
I decided to use this clever digital image that I received in the Gone Fishing digital set from Stitchy Bear Stamps as part of my prize when I won the random draw at Mema's Crafts Challenge. I kept my tag CLEAN AND SIMPLE.
You can see all the tags from the players at Tag Tuesday HERE.
I started with the Stitchy Bear image and printed it on white card stock, positioning it lower on the page so that I could cut it into a tag shape. I colored the image with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers: crushed olive, broken china, tumbled glass, and antique linen as well as Prismacolor 197 Green Tea.
Then I ran some Fancy Pants 1/2" chalk tape through a Darice embossing folder for my measuring tape across the bottom of the tag. I used a Sizzex embossing folder to add some circle "fish bubbles" to the top of the tag which I decorated with some half pearls (you always find pearls in the ocean, right?) If you have this embossing folder, then you know the circles are different sizes so I randomly placed 3 different sized half pearls in their matching circles.
The trim is from a black vegetable bag, and the green is some trim I often use in beach projects because I think it looks like a fish net. Really putting that fish necklace to work that I was given at the Neptune Wine Festival. It's been cut up for embellies and placed on several of my projects. I finished with a bit of baker's twine to resemble fishing line.
Entering these challenges:
Tag You're It: Challenge # 3 sketch challenge combined with CASe this Sketch Challenge #87
As you can see, I flipped the sketch so the white space is on the left as part of the image; and the stripes are horizontal rather than diagonal, again, part of the image.

Country View Challenges: Word Play This is not a sentiment. I thought this cheeky digital image was perfect for this challenge!
