If you know me, you know I love making tags. Why? I think it is because they can be quick projects – quicker than cards. When I saw that Moxie Fab World had a Gift Tag Challenge, I HAD to play along.

I have some more cards to share for the Online Card Class – His and Hers.


I really loved Heather Nichols watercolour stamping on Day three, so I decided to give it a go. I didn’t end up making a Sympathy card for the female version, as I didn’t have an appropriate sentiment, but I managed to find a sympathy type sentiment for the male version.



I am also entering these into the The Wonder of Watercolor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.


Stamps: PTI The Sweet Life Stamp set, Paper Smooches Reflections Stamp set, Hero Arts Live and Laugh Stamp set (sentiments)

Ink: Distress Markers – Worn Lipstick, Dusty Concord, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, VersaFine – Onyx Black

Card: Canson Watercolour paper – 300gsm, Hero Arts folded notecards – Iris and Pine

Other Supplies: Mister with water
