Belli Challenge #70

It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week your challenge is to use metal tags. Come on, I know you've got some laying around somewhere!



I punched some paper from the Basic Grey Recess pad and stuck inside my metal tags. Popped them up on more paper from the Recess pad, added some black twine and stamped the "graduation" on the paper randomly. I also smooshed my tag rims on my StazOn pad to make them a little less shiny.

I've been in kind of a rut lately so I was trying to step out of my comfort zone and make a masculine/not cutesy grad card. Not sure I accomplished it, but hey, it's something different at least!

Be sure to check out the Belli Blog for all the other awesome creations. The keyword for this challenge is CBC70 if you upload to SCS or PCP.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Wednesday!

This is really neat - love the masculine look of this card. Love that you made the metals less shiny by smooshing them in your inkpad. It's so scrappy-chic-y looking!
