Inspired by another tag

I was going through a few piles of stuff over the weekend and found another tag that I recently pulled from the trash. If memory serves me, this tag came from a shirt that DD bought at Target. I love the layers of color and the white design at the side.

As a result of my scavenging, I now have quite a collection of tags, postcards, ads, and brochures collected on my table for when I need a bit of inspiration.

I actually think this tag would make a great layout, but I started with a card just to see how it would translate. To make the card, I used a bit of Making Memories acrylic paint on the card base. After it dried, I added a few Basic Grey rub-ons (only a few: I'm hoarding the rest!) to the left portion of the card. I cut the letters using QuicKutz fonts (Khaki and Olivia). They're not the same look as the original tag, but I wanted to use what I had on hand and didn't want to mess with figuring out font colors on the computer.

So thanks for the inspiration, Mossimo Tag Designer...wherever you are!
