A white tag

I was fortunate enough to win the challenge inspired by time at Anyone for Anya - happy dance!!
This is my first challenge won - so I have no idea what's happening now, do I get a blinkie now?
I really don't care, I'm just so happy - LOL!

For this week the challenge was anything but a card - yay, a tag! And TGF-FFF is white out, therefore a white tag!

Now, how to challenge myself...
I have never coloured monochromatic (did I say that right??), so that's a winner...
And I have some metal tags that takes alcohol ink I've been wanting to play with for ages...

Here's the result!
I had so much fun trying to colour in black and white - this is my best effort. I believe I will continue practice - so much fun!!

My metal tag was alcohol inked in pearl. I wanted it white, but as I am on a personal mission to de-stash I forbid myself to hop of to my LSS - it was all to tempting!!! Therefore, I did not get the tag as white as I wished to. In the end, it kind of fit though... It looks whiter in reality than in the picture - oh dear, I hope it still qualify for the white out challenge...

To follow the white theme, I decorated the tag with box pleated trim from Melissa Frances in white. I also added some white prima say it in pearls as well as some small flat backs to her hair. I also made a small spray with white beads to add some dimension. The flower is from prima. I also continued to layer iridescent mini pearl trim on top on the pleated trim. I used this trim on my last card "me time" too.

Challenges entered:
Anyone for Anya - Anything but a card

This tag came together much faster then I expected, I had super much fun making it. Next project will be a lot of blog hoping, since it's stamptember and Simon says stamp is arranging weeks of fun and inspiration. There are also awesome prices and giveaways, so come along and play!!!
