Penny Black Saturday Challenge - No Cards Allowed!!

The theme this week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge is to make anything so long as it's not a card. Well, this was a bit of a challenge for me as I love my cards! I'm trying to learn how to make more fancier stuff and this weeks challenge will hopefully give me some new ideas. I'm afraid I only came up with a tag, but I tried to make it as fancy as possible!
I used this gorgeous cat image from the lovely Tracy and coloured him with Pro Markers then I punched him out with my super duper scallop punch. I edged around the scallop with black chalk for definition and mounted this onto the tag which I covered with some freebee magazine papers. The black ribbon is from the lovely Tracie and the other bits and bobs are from my stash.
Can't wait to see everyone's creations!!


Love Becky xx
