I was making a quick tag ready to share today and ended up going in a very dark direction. The tag definitely fits the prompt over on Country View Challenges for February: Anything but cute, so I will be sharing it as my final submission for this month. Although I do have a husband and three sons, I can assure you that no family members were hurt in the creation of this art work!
I started as I often do by adding a layer of paper towel mop up sheet to a #8 manilla tag to create a background.
However, as I have made a few tags recently with a similar colour theme, I decided to add another layer of paper towel over the top. This one had been used to clean off my stamps when making washi tape on masking tape for a journal background (see HERE for details).
