I was inspired by the Japanese Shinto wood charms for my tag. I used 3 different colors of distress ink, a Japanese script rubber stamp, a Japanese crane rubber stamp and a Japanese symbol rubber stamp. For my tag base I used a kleenex box that I cut the tag shape out of to give some stability as if it were wood. I then cut two more tag shapes out of a manilla folder. After inking both pieces I then placed one on each side of the tag cut out of the kleenex box. The back of the tag is inked with black walnut distress ink to help make the tag look like wood. I then chose to top off my tag with a Japanese Omamori Tassel knot. For a tutorial on how to make one, click HERE.
The second challenge I did was hosted by Margaret. She had us make these adorable little purses.
If you missed the crop this time....don't fret! The next one is coming up in November. There will be lots of challenges, games, a blog hop, prizes, not to mention all the fun and inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by!
