Well actually it officially started at the beginning of the month (lol)

Hi all,
Kat here, AKA Kat's craft creations
I'm here with my final project of the month,
this time I thought I would make a tag
(one of my favorite surfaces to work on)
this one is to commemorate being a fully fledged member of the design team,
so I guess it should have been the first project of the month but never mind (lol)

here it is,

I started with a manila tag
stamped & embossed the Harlequin background
& clear powder,
(I showed you how I altered the stamp to get this affect
in my first project of the month)

next I stamped the Music & Stipple Backgrounds
& distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Paper Distresser

onto my Craft mat, sprayed it with water,
then smooshed my tag into it,
& dried it with my Heat Gun,
I then blended the whole thing with
to get this affect,

Here's a close up of the finished background,
I added a paper ruler piece from my stash
near the bottom of the tag,

I embellished the tag with,
Tim Holtz dress form off the Haberdashery stamp set
I stamped it with Coffee archival ink

cut it in half, put 4 holes in & added the
pearles from the Baubles idea-ology set
(on offer this month at a fab price)
& stuck it with foam pads to give it dimention,

I stamped wings off the Crowning Glory set
& added them to the top of the dress form,
I finished her off with a heart locket from my stash,
from my computer, screwed it up into a tiny ball,
opened it again & blended
cut it out & added it to the tag as shown,
I added twine & more Baubles to the hole
to finish off.

Hope you like it!
that's it from me for this month,
I'll be back next month,
untill then TTFN,
Kat x.
