It just so happens that the theme over at Tag Tuesday this week is "use the colour Purple" so say no more!!
I cut a tag shape from cardboard and matted with polka dot paper which I then distressed around the edges using my handy T.H. distressing tool. I then inked the resulting rough edge with a promarker pen. The buttons are made from shrink plastic and coloured with the same promarker before shrinking down. The bow is made from paper and is made believe it or not from a 3" square of paper. The tutorial for it can be found here. It is a bit fiddly at first but you do get the hange of it quickly and as Helen emailed and said Practice makes perfect!
The flower is from the mammoth rose production undertaken which I will be posting about upstairs( As Fluff puts it) in a mo. Centre tag is a Kaser craft journal tag that I treated myself to. (Well a girl has to have a bit of fun whilst under stress.) Entering this into Pixies
