Was really anxious to take this challenge to use only black and white on a tag. I have always loved black and white, think it is so striking. Took the time to check out all of the cards that have been submitted for the Tuesday Tag Challenge #44 and the tags are all amazing, think my tag maybe a little lame, oh, well, I really had fun trying to put this one together.

Found some great little stamps at Michaels and you can see that stamp it at the top of the tag. Used the stamp and put them together to make my own designer paper. The base if the card was a black and white print. Then a solid white with solid black on top of the print. Added my own designer paper that was stamped using colorbox ink. Grossgrain ribbon was attached to one side, paper lace design on the opposite side. Little hearts were made with a heart punch in both black and white. The sentiment was a sticker, as was the couple in black and white.

Wanted to make this into an actual luggage tag, as we are going to Reno next week. Will be spending a few days with my daughter, Jamie, grandsons, Mason and Kyle, and possibly a few quality minutes with Tim, my son-in-law, he works so hard and has extremely long days and nights.Decided to use Modpodge and put a couple of coats on the tag.

If you would like to see some of the other creative tags you can click

Hope everyone has a great week and take a few minutes a day to do something that your enjoy.
