Let’s get ready, it is time for our next challenge with Tag You’re It!. To play along, just create a TAG or TAG containing project inspired by this tag project.
Inspiration: The double tag immediately jumped out at me. I like how they were “tied” together and yet offset. I also love the background Gayatri created and wanted to create one of my own. And of course, I had to have stars too.
I’m learning how to use my Distress Inks and blending tool. It is taking some serious practice. I went simple with this background and just used two different yet similar colors. I also went for a bit of an ombre effect. With my bold background completed, I went in with a star stencil and added some black stars with ink and then layered on some wood veneer stars too. I cut out two tags from patterned paper and covered one with the happy birthday sentiment. To help focus the eye, I popped up one of those sentiments on a white banner. Last, I tied the two tags together with a burlap sting and a paper bow.
