BBTB2 PEGGY LOVES VINTAGE AND TAGS, BAGS BOXES AND MORE CHALLENGE. WISH YOU WERE HERE!




















Good afternoon
This week over at BBTB2 our challenge is to use a tag from TBBM cartridge along with some gorgeous vintage images from Peggy Loves Vintage.
I decided to use these adorable images of a little boy and girl playing in the sand building sandcastles. So in order to set the scene I wanted some little beach huts in the background and these are actually made with tags from TBBM!
My card is a shadow box card which I designed using DS and Plantin School and it will fold down flat for posting. I printed the two children out twice and cut them out and just cut out the children again to pop dot for a little dimension. I welded five tags together in DS and cut lots of tags in patterned paper which I cut up and inked and adhered  over my welded tags along with some Prima vintage lace. I cut the waves from LAB border feature and the seagulls are also from this cart. Sun is from doodlecharms and finally the sentiment is computer generated , font LDJ Miss Me. The box is quite deep and  all pieces inside are adhered two four tabs at 1/2" spaces so in real life this is really quite 3D although my photography skills don't exactly show this well! The papers are from a Jessica Sprague paper download except for the frame which is DCWV.
I had so much fun making this little beach scene and thought this would be a novel way to use the tags!
Please make sure you pop over to BBTB2 to see the fantastic creations from the rest of the DT and also see some of the other fabulous images from Peggy Loves Vintage.
Thanks for looking and have a great week!
