Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge 53 - Anything but a card

 First off I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers of those victims of the Moore, Oklahoma  tornado victims.  The news is horrific and I can't imagine what these poor folks are going through and will be going through in the days to come. We are sponsored by Saturated Canary this week!!!  We'd like to thank them for providing our design team with some fabulous images!

I'm really sorry with this post being late, I forgot that yesterday was Monday and my only excuse is we had a long weekend here in Canada. Anyways my challenge card is a tag. I started off using a manilla tag that I used added some Rub Ons Remnants by Tim Holtz called 'Words' and then used Tim Holtz Distress Stains that I swiped on my craft mat and drag my tag thru. I used  Peacock Feathers, Seedles Preserves and Dusty Concord. I then overstamped using Tim Holtz distress stain called Salty Ocean uisng his stamp called chicken wire from the set called 'Mixed Media'.  For my image I chose 'Whispy' from Saturated Canary and colored her using my Prismacolor pencils. I then use Ranger's Embossing ink Dauber to add some embossing ink in a couple of places so I could add some Stampendous Frantage Embossing Kit using Shabby Blue for my base which I heat set underneath and then added in some Royal Purple Glitter and some blue glitter by Melissa Frances to add some bling on my tag. I added some purple and blue ribbon by May Arts to complete my card.
