Tag You're It #54 - Reminder

Happy Friday!

There's still time to play along with the current Tag You're It Challenge #54!


We were so lucky to be inspired this challenge by Michelle Short of The Card Grotto! I love Michelle's design style. I created my tag very similar to her tag by starting with a white tag and colouring the entire thing. I think this is the first time I have coloured such a large space with Copic markers.

I stamped a bloom from Altenew's Bamboo Rose and coloured the rose and leaves in pinks and greens and then the background using blues. I added a bit of splotching with my colorless blender just like Michelle did but very carefully. Not a good idea to try something new on a finished piece--lol! I painted the entire flower and the leaves with a clear Spectrum Noir glitter marker and added a few sequins to finish it off.

So pretty Tracey. I've been a bit caught up in happenings around here, but found time yesterday to craft. One of my first creations in a long time was a tag for this challenge. Your rose, with its bit of sparkle is gorgeous. Love the colors you've used. Hope all is well with you. Oh! I had a 19-day run of NO ykws!!!! That's a record, and one I hope you've matched!! Bev

Love the bloom on this tag, so pretty and colorful. I've been away and am trying to catch up. Loved your fun monkey card too! My favorite of the past week or so is the little paper airplane card. So sweet.
