Krafty Girls Challenge #109

Happy weekend, all! It's time for another Krafty Girls Challenges. Our hostess this week is Sandie and she challenged us to make a tag or to use a tag in our projects. Here is mine.

I was trying to make a manlier one, but probably failed... =) I used the cool cat from Lots of Love 2 set for my tag. He looks so handsome and confident! =)

Mr. Cat is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die. I used Tim's Tag & Bookplates die to cut my tag, but I trimmed my tag to 5 1/2" tall. I am just more comfortable with this size. =) I also backed the tag with a piece of cardstock for stability.

The patterned paper is from Indie Bloom 6x6 Paper Pad by BasicGrey and the sentiment comes with this set.

Also, do you know about the Twelve Krafty Days of Khristmas event at the Krafty Girls Challenge Blog? It's a little review of the 2011 releases and you can win prizes by leaving comments on each day's post. So go and check it out!

That's all from me. Please check out what the Krafty Girls and Krafty Guests came up with for this challenge here. Sandie used super cool Cutthroat Lizzie for her tag and you will have the chance to win this stamp if you include a tag in your projects. Hope you can join us this week! =)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!

I don't think you failed, Alice, I think this is a great masculine tag! Especially I like the fact that you have the circle die cut overhanging.

such a fun tag Alice!

Gorgeous coloring and wonderful tag, Alice. I think it's pretty masculine. I don't think I can do that at all. It's even harder then CAS, masculine cards or projects.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles

Hi, Alice! I love this smitten kitten! He looks great on your tag and I think you succeeded tremendously in keeping more to the masculine side. It turned out great! Hugz, Cheryl

He certainly is a cool cat and love your colouring Alice. It think it looks manly.
This is a great tag - perhaps not manly enough, but perfect for Valentines! Love the colors and how the image is offset too! Have a Merry Christmas!
