Dual purpose tags...use as a bookmark (as a gift or for yourself) &/or use them on a card or layout. I used Glimmermist & a mask then stamped onto a plain sheet of card then cut out pieces to stick onto the tag. The tag was inked using distress inks in 2 colours. Ribbon, lace, stickers, flowers & metal pieces were used to embellish the tags. This project is good for using up left over bits & pieces. Take the time to cut out a stack of tags to have handy & that way you can complete one while you are scrapbooking, inking or stamping.
On the back of these tags I stamped a piece of card with "For You" & "To" & "From" to make the tag into a card itself. This makes a nice gift & one that you can send in the mail for any occasion.

I may have to rescan these cards as they look a bit surreal-maybe the settings were changed! The first card is a white base painted with a colour wash Then inked around the edges and stamped with a script stamp. The chipboard doilley has been inked then coated with chalkboard mist. The flower & the embossed scallop edge are made from Tim Holtz glassine paper( a bit like thick wax baking paper) with perfect pearls dusted over & heat set so it doesn't rub off.
