The Kraft Journal AND Fantabulous cricut challenge blog

 monday :)  this weeks challenge/theme over at TKJ is love. AND ovet at FCCB theyre having a fantastic crawl their theme is using the word love. for my submission i made 2 tags using kraft paper purchased from tkj.
i used my cricut and tags bags boxes and more cartridge for the tags, cutting once regular cut and shadow cut..(you can purchase tags from the tkj store if needed). i distressed and added colorbox fluid chalk   to them.
for the first tag, i used sweethearts cartridge for all the cuts.
for the heart, i used indie art cartridge,  making  a stencil using the negative cut. i then used alchohol inks  to color it in ( cranberry, lettuce pearl and gold). then added pearl accents. i also added some lace. 
for the 2nd tag , i used a negative cut from sweethearts cartridge and backed that with lighter pink paper. .added a pearl to the center and along the sides. i doodles some and also added stickles to the petals.
the butterfly  is a MS punch which i used kraft paper from the kraft outlet i embossed it with a small cuttlebug folder and used colorbox fluid chalk and stickles on it
simple tags but i think they turned out pretty. 
hope i inspired ya today  even if just a little :)  thank you for stopping by the blog and as always your sweet comments make me smile. have a great rest of day. xxxshelly

These are fantastic Shelley! I love how you used some different mediums and techniques. You don't see a lot of alcohol ink used and using the negative of the image was very clever. They're both lovely! Thanks so much for joining us again this week for our challenge at The Kraft Journal!
