Inspirational Quotes, Tag Book

Here are the first two tags in my book. I've uploaded them the wrong way round the second one is actually going to be the first in the book!

The tags are chipboard covered in thin white card. Once they are all complete, they will be punched & attached together I'm thinking a ball chain rather than book ring for the closure.


Tag 2, is inked in 3 shades of distress inks; Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar & Worn lipstick.

I used the Cracked TH embossing folder. I think I inked the edges with Weathered Wood to give a bit of depth to the pinks.

Tag 1 is inked in 4 shades of distress inks; Broken China, Dusty Concorde, Tumbled Glass & a touch of weathered Wood. It is also gessoed to give a faded look to the trees in the background. My main tree CI209 is then stamped in Rangers Black Archival ink.

I will share some more in a few days time. I'm hoping to create at least 12 of these tags for all the really important quotes I have.
