Creative Cutting Challenge: Anything Goes

Time for another Creative Cutting Challenge!
The theme this time is Anything Goes! So
any project made with an SVG type cut file
(no cricut cuts)
I made this tag: 

Someone sent me some plain tags in the mail, so I decided one would
work well with the cutting file I chose for this project... 
I crumpled the tag, put some ink on my craft sheet,
I used Tim Holtz Distress inks in Black Ink and Peeled paint.
I ran my crumpled tag through the ink, then added a spritz of
water and ran it through again. I dried it with my heat gun, then ironed it to
get is somewhat flat again. I cut my shapes (Gear Frame from
tag from the library built into the Make The Cut software)
The gold parts were a pale yellow green card stock, I added 
Gold Gelato to them. The Silver part was gray, I added Silver Gelato.
The crinkle ribbon is some I ordered from 3 Girls Jam
while back. The jute twine is from My Life in Arts n Crafts.
The writing on the tag is my own. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Such a great distressed tag! Lots of cool elements make it "Great Grunge!"

  2. I love the tag! The metallic colors are perfect with the gears!

  3. Hi Pam, this is awesome tag. Super great job, wish I could create tags, but not my expertise. Thank you for sharing.



I love hearing from you!
