Ahoy There!

I really haven't been very good about updating my blog, but I will try to do better.

I forgot how much I enjoy making tags. I made this tag for the Tag challenge that's running concurrently with the "Peek-a-boo" challenge at the Bombshell Forum at Paper Craft Planet! You should check them both out, especially since you can win goodies! Goodies are good, right? :D

The tag uses the sailor girl and the sentiment from the "Ahoy Sailor" set by Bombshell Stamps. I colored the focal image with Copic markers then felt the need to shab it up with Distress Inks. The stars are colored with twinkly sparkly Spica pens. The bling just isn't showing and the colors are a bit off in this scan. I think that's because I have the focal image mounted on dimensional foam adhesive thingies, which confuses my scanner. The patterned paper is by Making Memories (on sale now at Michael's!), the cardstock is Core'Dinations, and the die cut banner is by QuicKutz. The ribbons are from my stash.

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Gorgeous tag. Everything about it is so cute - I especially like how you did the banner.

    I just got this stamp set last night so thank for the inspiration too :-)

    Happy Easter.

  2. Love the colors on this tag!
