Altered Hang Tag First Kiss

So, this altered art stuff is quickly becoming my new addiction. I am so loving it! I decided I wanted to make another altered hang tag. This one is called First Kiss.

First Kiss Altered Tag

I started with a good and grungy hang tag. Then I added a vintage image of some tiny tots having their first kiss--this image was the inspiration for the whole project, of course. I just couldn't resist it! I cut a small splice in the photo behind the little girl, and I inserted some butterfly wings for a fairy nice effect. Then I Mod Podged the image to the hang tag.

Next I added two stickers, one that looks like a stamp, and the other is the yellow flower. I thought the yellow flower would help tie into the butterfly wings a bit more. Then I added the word "first" at the top of the image (that was part of a sticker too).

Next I needed to create the letters for the word "kiss." I stamped them onto grungy card stock then cut them out. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to distress the edges of each one. And then I glued each letter to the tag.

The final step was to punch two small holes near the top of the tag, so that I could add some black ribbon.  I think I need to make a bunch more hangtags...and then maybe sell them? I find it so difficult to sell artwork I created that I really like. But who knows.
