we'll start with the finished tag... I used 5's a few times... five colours, five birds, five groups of words (also ELB24)
if I'd planned the tag better (or at all, lol!) I'd have used 5 stamps too.. but couldn't get any more on after I had that idea..
I started by drawing the 5 on my tag with a pencil, then once I was happy with the shape and size I outlined it with my new Fude Ball pen (did I say how much I love this pen?!)
Masked round the outside of the 5 and filled the middle with the flower (dandelion?) from ELB24, in Buttercup archival..
Decided the middle needed more colour/flowers.. so masked the outside again (telling it how it is, here!)
Took my Tea Rose archival and repeated the flower inside the 5
mounted this with 3d foam pads... glued some die cut birds (5 obviously) onto each piece of tag..
For my 5th colour (you'd almost think this was an afterthought, wouldn't you........am saying nothing!)..
I added another layer of stamping in Forget me Not archival, and the small flower centre from ELB22 - you can see this later in the next picture...
I added some string through the hole in the tag, not of course at all because I couldn't be bothered to get the box of ribbons down... no, not me!
So there you have it, 5, in all it's truthful afterthought tagginess...
I know that's not a real word, I just made it up.. a bit like the tag..
Hop over to DragonsDream to see what the others have done (they will have planned and organised I am sure..) if you'd like to join in, we'd love to see you - you do need to use at least one real stamp and make a tag... you have 2 weeks.
