Which leads me to only getting a tag done. I must say though, in that short amount of time I used a couple of techniques I've been wanting to try!
Hero Arts Artistic Border, Hero Arts Big Circles, Hero Arts Everyday Sayings
Lawn Fawn Tag You're It, Distress Inks and markers, Hero Arts Shadow inks,
White and Clear Embossing Powder, Doodlebug Designs enamel dots
I stamped out the tag and white heat embossed it. I wanted the leaves in the background to show an ombre look so I stamped it in Hero Arts Shadow inks. I thought the tag was too white so to keep the color in the leaves I traced over it with a Versamarker and heat set it with clear embossing. This created the resist I needed to make my blue ombre background using distress inks. The flowers were also white heat embossed and colored with distress markers. I fussy cut them and foam taped them on and added some enamel dots for fun. I had this stitched ribbon in my stash from a card kit and thought it went well with the stitched look of the tag.
Check it out on a gift (waaaaay over due) that I'm sending to my Colorado sister...
I must say tags really add a little special somethin' and love that they can be quickly made. I'll be linking this up to the Tag You're It Challenge using this as my inspiration...
