As I Wandered the Forest Tag


I made this tag for last week's Ways to Use it Challenge over on Split Coast.  The challenge was to do collage stamping.

Collage stamping is a great way to create a decorative tag.  This could be used as a bookmark, a card or a gift tag.


I used 4 stamps from Rubbernecker for the collage part - a wire grid background, a Victorian Damask background and two foliage stamps.

I also stamped a sentiment on a tag and hung it from the ribbons with a piece of twine.

The sentiment says "As I wandered the forest, the green leaves among, I heard a Wild Flower Singing a song.

I did lots of sponging on the tag and layered it to two pieces of colored card stock.

To see a step by step tutorial on how I made this tag -  check it out over at the Rubbernecker Blog!
