Tag You're It Challenge - October Guest Designer

Hello friends.  I'm so excited to have been asked to be the Featured Artist over at the Tag You're It Challenge this month!  And since the weather is turning cooler and the leaves are starting to fall (at least here in Michigan anyways!), I decided on this little cutie from Penny Black to share with you.


When I was growing up, raking leaves was a family affair as we had SO many Oak trees in our yard and the leaves just kept falling and falling!  Back then we were allowed to burn the leaves and while I know now that it's not good for the environment, I still remember quite fondly the smell and all the emotions that smell brought with it!  Now with all our leaves, we have to bag them and the recycle truck picks them up.  All to say, this little girl brought back many memories!


The image and sentiment are a little set called Hello Autumn, and I embossed them in black and then used my Zig Clean Color brushes to color the little girl and leaf.  Once my image was dry, I masked her and then blended Salty Ocean distress ink lightly all around her and then used a Gina Marie Designs die to cut out my tag shape.

We can't wait to see what you're inspired to come up with, so check out all the inspiration from the DT, and then play along right HERE.


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
