Tic TAG Toe.

Hello Everyone,
I am the Guest Designer over at City Crafter today and I am rather pleased about it as it has been years since I last had this privilege.
The theme is "tic TAG toe", to create a tag or a project with tag(s).
As most of you know I do not make many Tags, so it was a Challenge, I put it on a card as I will definitely have some use for it this way.

This is the inspiration photo:

I made the Tag from fine linen, attached a serviette image with multi matte medium and stamped the text.
           Diecut a frame, painted in Black added Crackle paste and then painted it over in Teal.
Gave it a good buff up!!!      
   The Key was painted the same way but I added embossing powder to jazz it up.  
My silhouette is also a diecut I found in my stash.   
Added the buttons to complete the composition.        

Would love you to pop across to City Crafter and say Hello.

Sue, what a lovely tag and so clever use of the key- at first glance I thought it was a floral head wreath! xo

Gorgeous tag Sue... sorry I haven't been and commented for a while... your blog is not coming up on my list - so I wasn't aware you were back creating.
What a beautiful tag Sue. The texture is stunning. Off to check out your older posts.

The challenge theme threw me off...I was literally thinking "toe tag" as in what you get when you're on 'the slab' and I have to admit, I cringed. HOWEVER, now that I've consumed more coffee and remembered the simple game of tic tac toe, I GET IT!!! I had to laugh when I saw your tag and thought, "well, that would be a pretty tag for a toe and certainly fit for a queen." Now that I'm not all confused, I love your tag and the way you've used the key as a crown of sorts and DEFINITELY putting the tag on a card is the way to go. We've had this discussion before and your solution is the BEST solution!
Confused in Missouri ;)
