oooh a big Juicy Tag!!!

Papers and sentiment- Steam Funk from Funky Hand.
Morning everyone!!!

I have been sat at my pooter getting not a lot done since I dropped  Little Mo off at school this morning!! so I thought I would do something productive and share my big, juicy tag with you!!

I bought these huge tags last year from the pound shop ( well, I say huge... they are about 6" x 3.5" which is huge to me !!!) they kind of sat in the pile of mess on my craft room table until a couple of weeks ago when I made a christmassy one and thought to myself , hey I should do some more of these ....then I forgot!!! (..yup, I am that useless!!!) 

So when I found them again the other day I just had to use my yummy new Steam Funk papers, I love them so much because they have one of my fav colour combo's of all time, browns and creams! ( mmmmm cookies and ice cream....!!) and thus making them delicious to create with!! I also remembered that I have an awesome rolled roses file in my MTC that I hadn't used on a long time so I cut some out with my trusty cricut. 

While it was working hard cutting rolly roses I covered one of the big tags in a sheet of yumminess. If you look closely at the papers they have awesome little crafty words all over them!! I love it!!! I punched out some butterflies and leafy fronds and started off the glue gun on heating up (....not to self....making a cuppa and getting some dinner whilst forgetting the glue gun is heating up is not the best idea ever.....however it does leave a really hot toasty smell in your cold craft room which is quite warming........)
I layered up my little butterflies a bit with 3 layers so they looked all fluttery! they have crochet wool for antennae's to match the strings through the tag!!

The sentiment I inked around the edge and then screwed up (...and trod on it........just to make sure it was squooshed...) then I unrolled it and inked it again. It my favourite way to distress something.
Then it was just a case of splodging it all on the tag which was awesome fun and I love how it came out. Here's another piccy from a slightly different angle...
So I guess my big and juicy tag is me for today!!! I am popping off now to spend some time with the fur babies from my old nannying job!! I love them as much as the children and today they need a quick run out while their parents are at work and the children are at school so I get to have furry cuddles today!!
