Crafty Boots Challenge

I was thrilled recently to be offered a place on the Crafty Boots Design Team and this is my first piece for the Crafty Boots challenge site.  Team-mate Tracie has set the theme for this - Material. Make anything you like, but use some material in your entry.

I decided to make a tag and found some material in a scraps drawer, and my Tim Holtz sewing die.

I sprayed the tag with Dylusions sprays  and stencil before adding a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp.  I cut the dress form twice, once in the material and once in sticky back canvas and stuck the two together and added some ribbon and a brad from my stash, and tied some ribbons through the tag too.

I do hope you'll come and join in.
