Blue-hug tag

 This time I have made a tag that l have named blue-hug tag,
made to chase those blues away.
It can also be used as a bookmark because I kept it flat.

I am looking forward to sending this tag to a special someone 
who needs a good hug,
you'll know who you are when you get it!
The message on the tag from North star stamps 
'sending you hugs and cosy-ness'

I made this for this months challenge
over at Trykk Pressa.

I first painted a kraft tag with crackle paint
colour 'weathered wood'( I just slapped it on leaving 
some of the kraft paper to show through).

Then made the smaller tag using a Magnolia 
heart stamp that I coloured using distress pens and 
a white gel pen for the dots.

I applyed rub-ons and washi tape to the tag
before distressing the edges and ageing it all over
with  distress ink -Vintage photo and walnut stain.

Lastly I coloured some vintage seam binding with 
distress ink refil - weathered wood,
and attached it to the tag.

Hapy days!!

  1. It's beautiful, Nina - I know your friend will love it!

    I hope it's not too cold where you are - it's freezing here in the UK! It's even been snowing down here in the South East of England - I haven't managed to get into work for the last two days. Shame, huh?! He he! Still, I can't wait for the Spring to get here eventually!

  2. Så enkel og SÅ nydelig Nina! Sikker at den heldige mottaker blir superglad for denne!
    Gleder meg til å tilbringe helgen med deg vennen!
    Stor klem
