Tags in Bags - A Day for Daisies

Hey its challenge time again over @ Outlawz - Paper Ala Mode and the theme this week is Circus, Vintage ot Modern.  The theme this week has been chosen by moi!

I used two vintage clown digis from A Day for Daisies and coloured them up using prisma pencils.  I then cut them out.  I am not a lover of cutting for fear of ruining the images so it was hold breathe grit teeth and plunge in.  I didn't shut my eyes though lol.  I am the type of person when driving and coming to a tight spot will breathe in to squeeze through... it works! LOL.

I cut out two labels and covered them in distress inks and stamped and embossed all over them using Big Top Circus stamps.  You know its funny modern clowns with white faces and huge red smiley mouth painted on freaks me out but love these guys....well I wouldn't have touched them otherwise.  Anyway enough rambling on and on and on.....

I used muslin for the bows again distressed along with the wooden buttons and raffia for the tag ties.  I made two bags for the ties to slip into but before making them up they got the ol stamp and embossed treatment.  I attached distressed cord for handles and mini tags on the bags as you would on a gift bag. I thoroughly enjoyed this project and guess what you are now about to be saturated with pics and even more pics.. front and bag views of all items and at every angle LOL... SORRY!

Why don't you all pop over and join in with our challenge this week.  Would be good to see your creations.....Thats it for me right now but I will be back!

And I am sorry for drowning you in pics!
