Tag You're It Challenge #87

Hello friends.  Finally had time to make a tag for the current Tag You're It Challenge and take a look at the amazing inspiration photo they chose for us to work with this time...


And here's what I came up with:


First up, can you see my "oops"??  I used PTI's Quilted: Winter Tag die and obviously not paying attention, I glued my die cut branches from PTI's Songbirds to the backside of the tag...grrrrrrr!!  And of course by the time I realized what I'd done, it was too late to peel the branches off without ripping them!  Oh well, it is what it is!  I water colored a piece of heavy cardstock with the greens and purples for my die cut branches, and my birds were die cut from a piece I water colored with pinks.  The birds are also from the Songbirds set.  The music banner was stamped with Perfect Plum ink and die cut from the same Songbirds set.


In this close up you can see that I had dry embossed the tag with a SU! folder and also sprayed the whole tag with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz.  A few purple enamel dots and some pink thick bakers twine help pull out the colors from the inspiration photo and finish off my tag.

You can check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT right HERE and play along.

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

  1. Your tag is so sweet Marcia, a perfect take on the lovely challenge image. I wouldn't have noticed at all, that your tag was backward. It's stunning just the same! The watercolored sprigs and birds are artsy and cheerful!
