Rough, Tag, and a Sketch

Hi, everyone! With my crafty time running out this weekend I combined a few challenges on one card. And I think it came out great! Links will be at the end of this post.


After making ing a few cards without a Crazy Bird on them I had to break them out again. I’m addicted to Crazy Birds, so I stamped one onto a tag die cut and colored him in with my Zigs. I love how you can color these guys anyway and any color and they still turn out awesome!! I popped the tag up with some foam dots onto a white card base that I ink blended first with some yellows and oranges. I didn’t want it to distract from the tag so I used a very soft coloring on the blending. Then I white heat embossed a simple “HELLO” from the same Crazy Birds set and popped that up also to add some rough texture. I wasn’t going to add any twine or string to the tag, but then I found some really fun gold thread and tied it onto the tag to finish the card.I absolutely love how the three challenges worked so fantastic together on this card. If you haven’t played along yet- you should!!! Here they are:
