[9.26.2014] TAG you’re It!

Tag You’re It!

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.


Now it is YOUR turn… Tag You’re It!  Visit the Challenge blog to see all the inspiration projects and how to play along.  It is all about fun and tags!!!
