Nautical Tag

Howdy Crafters - I got out the TH Bookmark and Tag die and used blue acrylic paints to create this tag - thanks for dropping by and be blessed ~ Gail ~

TH Tag and bookmark die
Recycled cardboard for the base of the die
White cardstock to cut the tag top layer

Acrylic blue paints and brush - I let this dry until I got home from work
Bugaboo Digital Lighthouse with clouds and bird

Spectrum Noir Marker to color
Spellbinders Nautical dies - Sand-dollar [I added a button in the middle of the Sand-dollar] - Kraft cardstock - Ocean Waves - greenish cardstock - Anchor - recycled cardboard - Kleenex box that was grey - Bakers Red Twine

Spellbinders grungy labels die/stencil sentiments - Dream - Faith-Hope - First I ran them through the Cuttlebug to cut each one  using white cardstock scrap- then I embossed each by running them through the Cuttlebug - next,  I used Distress Vintage Ink to color them using a finger sponge - I placed Pop up tape behind each one and positioned them on the tag
I used Mod-Podge on top and behind the Lighthouse to glue it down on the tag
I added red and white Polk-a-dot ribbon and called it finished

It would be an honor to share with
