This is the first of some tags I have been making. I used distress inks for the background and then edged it with gold paint. The wee stamp is by Magenta. I restamped the cat on to plain paper and glued him over the image. Finished off with a circle cut from a gold doyley, and a decorative button.
I would like to enter the following challenges. 'use a tag'  'tags'  anything with 4 legs
