Fairy Tags!

Hey Friends!
I have some really sweet tags to share with you today. They were featured in the Prima Artzine in April and I decided to post them here too! Tags are some of my absolute favorite projects to create. I think it's always good to create cards or tags because they are less involved than larger projects with the same satisfaction in the end...

These little projects seem to inspire me and rejuvenate my mojo for other larger or more involved projects I have in mind.

These lovely little girls are cut out from the Fairy Rhymes papers by Prima. Aren't they adorable? When I cut them out, I decided to include the flower images around them. It took some effort and careful fussy cutting...but totally worth it!

For the base-I used the large manila tags by Ranger! I love the size-they are a little larger than normal sized shipping tags . (I have the complete product list at the bottom of this post!) Over the backgrounds, I adhered patterned papers from the collection. For added interest, I used bronze colored embellishments to bring out the auburn color of their hair. I do so with satin ribbon and the Prima newsprint frames. 

 I love to create my flower clusters using a mix of styles and colors that match the paper perfectly. The white flowers add texture without making it feel too flower heavy. I also pulled out the blue and violet tones from the fairy for a cohesive look.

I love the pops of pink from this sweet image with green and auburn tones. Again-mixing various flower styles and shades can really make those colors shine!

Here are some close ups of the tags that really show off the dimension and details.

Hope you enjoyed these little projects today! Thanks for coming by! xoxo Cari
