June Tag

So with the June Tag it was for sure going to be something for Fathers Day. 
Well my kids have a father who has an amazing Job!!! I knew right then what I needed to focus on. 
I then asked #myhotpilot to help me cut a  image of a Blackhawk on the silhouette (yes you read that right) my husband is the master of image cutting on this machine. He helps me a great deal, and I must say he might even be better then me.  
So once image was cut I went a few different routes on placement and paper choices. The Tag worked great for this part. 
Next I inked and glossy accented the inset of the Blackhawk. 
Now to make the background of the image I used water color paper and grabbed a bunch of colors and Tim Holtz cracked glass stencil to create the look of the New Army Uniforms.
Once I got the look I wanted I then started to stencil the States Map on my Tissue Paper.

Once I got it glued on I then removed the tissue paper in the center of the Blackhawk. 
If you notice the Red Metal dots these are locations of Military Bases we got stationed at.. Now I had to try again and make the ribbon into the uniform camouflage so I mixed it up again 
I think it came out great all the little details are so much fun I even made some cute dog tags out of this tiny die from Dimond Press. I cut it both ways on image to get the full look 
I then embossed a image from this folder focusing on the dot section 
And there you have it homemade Dog Tags. 
 I had so much fun doing this tag and it means so much to me to show my Love for my wonderful Husband
