Guesting for Tag You're It

Eeeeeek!  I am giddy with excitement I might actually faint! The reason - I'm guesting over at Tag You're It - Challenge #37.  So let's dive straight in before I pass out! :)

Here's the Inspiration tag for this fortnight - an elegant black and white tag made by Donna Peachy.

Here's my take on Donna's lovely tag. It was a nightmare to photograph, especially with the glare from the acetate. Maybe a darker background would have helped. Oh well, only proves I'm an amateur through and through!

I've picked elements form Donna's tag and switched it around. I made a round tag with the clear acetate in the middle and the floral feature on the outside edge. I've used some sheer white ribbon and tied it with black string.

To embellish the tag, I adhered a few white pearls directly on the acetate.

To cut the tag I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Circle Tags dies. The flowers are from Clearly Besotted's Fairytale Ending set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Graph'It alcohol markers in shades of grey. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the tag. To finish, some Stardust Stickles and Onyx Liquid Pearls.
