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.
