Labels Tags and I.D!

Hi Everyone

This week over at Stampotique and Dragons Dream is all about Tags.

Last week I was on a conference when the challenge came out, which got me thinking about identification tags we wear around our neck - a label, a name plate as well as the tags we decorate for our projects.  We don't really know the people behind the tag - an air of mystery.

Onto the big tag I glued a piece of watercolour paper spritzed with Ranger Cranberry Ink and heat dried.  I then used 2 x masks- one of coggs which depicts work and time and the skyscraper mask for the city environment and the need for i.d. tags! I sponged through the masks with Cranberry Adirondack ink. 

I then stamped out in Versamark onto acetate a rose and heat set with WOW ebony embossing powder.  I then turned this over and painted it in with Acrylic paint.  I then cut this out.
I stamped out in Archival ink 'Girl with lunchbox' and coloured her in with Promarkers.  I then punched out a small Woodware tag punch and coloured it in with Promarkers and used 2 x Hero Arts alphabet stamps on it saying (I.D.) I attached this around the neck of the girl with a piece of metal chain (the ones you get on clothing attaching the label).

I then thought about a phrase - usually someone famous has said something about the theme way before me and today was no exception - Coco Chanel.

A girl should be two things:
Who and what she wants.

                           Coco Chanel

 which I thought  fitted the bill perfectly.  I then added ribbon at the top of the tag.

I am entering this tag into the following challenges:
