Tag You're it Challenge 1 - On a bough
Hi there, Happy Easter, have you scoffed all your chocolate eggs yet.
I will be helping the kids with theirs later on.
First of all I want to share with you some fantastic news.
A while ago my lovely friends Anne and Sam asked me if I wanted to join their DT on the fantastic challenge blog Tag You're it. This is a blog dedicated to those who love making tags.
I used to join in with the wonderful challenges just over a year ago.
The blog was dismantled for a while as other projects took over. It has undergone a Spring clean and we are relaunching with some AMAZING challenges lined up.
The lovelyLinda is also joining us on the DT.
This week the challenge is On a bough. For me, this immediately led me to think of birds and trees.
I used my new Elaine cox image from Sweet Pea stamps. I love this plate of stamps. I firstly cut out a tag. I used distress inks to create a background onto which I stamped my image.
I then coloured on top of the distress ink with my prismacolour pencils. I added some punched leaves also coloured with prismacolour pencils. I then added some glossy accents to the eyes of the owls.
I added a sentiment from the same plate of stamps. I then added some pearls and a ribbon and used a white gel pen to add some faux paperpiercing to the edge of the tag.
I layered the tag onto some pale green card to which daubed some acrylic paint onto the edges.
We would love you to join in with our challenge. xx
