Spring! Is it Your Thing?

Spring Tags with Homemade Screens

My Craft Spot

Monday Challenge #93 - Tags

I love, love, love tags, so entering a spring-themed tag for MCS's tag challenge was a no brainer!  I tried something new by creating my own screens cut out of basic office supply store acetate with some fun Cricut cuts.

I then inked them with combinations of LSG's awesome sprays and Distress Inks.  I used copies of amazing vintage papers to cut out the images and just adhered them down with Zip Dry.  A final touch with some sentiment stamps and an additional chipboard element and voila - beautiful, layered, collage-inspired tags with bright spring colors and themes.

Cardstock:  Petersen Arne
All tags cut from Plantin Schoolbook on my Gypsy.

Homemade stencils from various carts using ordinary office supply acetate.

Some of my selected carts.
