#89 ...Only Us Bunnies. Gulp! Tag
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - tags
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle Shop - $10 gift certificate
This week I am using this fun image from our sponsor, Digi Doodle called 'Turkey in Disguise'. This 'dinner-in-waiting' has donned some bunny ears & gone undercover to hide his identity & comes with a few free fun one liner sentiments to illustrate his predicament - whether for Christmas or Thanksgiving . Of course, being in the UK, for me he is on a Christmas themed tag and has been coloured with Promarkers to what I hope is at least something vaguely turkey-like. LOL. I don't know about you, but I normally only see them when they are all plucked & in a shop freezer. LOL. I made the tag circular as I hoped it echoed his rotund shape given that he will have undoubtedly been especially fattened up! The addition a piece at the top maked my circle into a suitably Christmas-sy bauble & I hammered a slot into this for the ribbon to go through. The backing papers, by the way, are both designs by HOTP from my stash.
The satin ribbon I folded into a rosette kind of shape & secured with a few stitches before adding a Marianne Creatable snowflake to the centre and finishing it off with a gorgeous spotted button. The twine knotted through the button was a regular greyish-string colour but I recoloured it black with my Promarkers. The two tiny white snowflakes on the snowflake print dp are the punched out residue from a Martha Stewart border punch.
That's all for today then. Happy crafting!
