Shark Tag

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - TraceyM #6773 - thank you for joining me!  Today I'm sharing a shark tag to match the shark card I made the other day.  To my regular followers, please know that my usual cute cards will be returning right away, so don't worry!


This shark image is from JessicaLynnOriginal called Shark Week. I coloured it with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop it up with foam tape. Just as with my shark card, I created an underwater background with watercolour markers (Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, Turquoise Green, Persian Green, Blue, Persian Blue, and Peacock Blue). I added some solid stamping from Newton's Nook Shark Bites and a number of sequins from my stash.

The tag shapes were die-cut with My Creative Time Tag Dies and Tag Die Layers. The sentiment from Newton's Nook is heat-embossed in white. I added some black ribbon and multi-coloured eyelash ribbon to finish off the tag. I think the card and tag make a cute set!
