Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Magical Tag using AALL & Create's Tag It Yourself Dies and Tim Holtz's Media Marks 1 Stamps

Hello, hello and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!  This week our theme is "tag it."  I do love tags, so here's what I made:

I started by cutting a tag out of black Strathmore Mixed Media paper and AALL & Create's Tag It Yourself die set.  I love the wonky edges of this tag!  Next I ripped out a piece of Dina Wakley paper from her Collage Sparks 2 paper set and glued it to my tag.

I added paint and some polka dots (what else is new?) and I used Tim Holtz's Gradient Dot stencil to do rough outlines of my dots.  I also tacked on some masking tape.  Then I stamped, fussy-cut and painted a sprig of leaves from Tim's Media Marks 1 stamp set.  I also ripped off a little piece of patterned paper.

I assembled the elements, then ended up making a faux flower-pot-looking thing out of white paper that I stamped stripes onto and then painted the edges of.  The stripes are from Tim Holtz's Media Marks 2 stamp set.  To finish off my tag, I stamped the word "Magical" from Tim's Seasonal Scribbles stamp set.  The scribbly fonts in that stamp set make me happy and I use the words way more often than just for Christmas projects.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
