Tag You're It! #1

It's our first official challenge over at Tag You're It!
We had fabulous participation for our mini challenge, so I'm really excited to see the entries for our next challenge.

Our Guest Designer this week is Virginia Lu, from Yes, Virginia.


Here's my take on the challenge...


I was inspired by Virginia's distressed and die cut sentiments and her floral background stamping.  To make my tag, I colored with Distress Markers on Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, then spritzed it with water to blend the colors.  Once dry, I die cut my sentiment using the Thanks Word Die by Lil' Inkers from the watercolor paper, then again from black card stock.  The tag was die cut from the Anytime Tags set and stamped with Modern Mehndi.  After assembling the tag I used my Wink of Stella pen to add sparkle to my sentiment.



How are you inspired by Virginia's tags?  Make sure you head over to the Tag You're It! Challenge blog to see how the rest of the team was inspired! 

Thanks for stopping by & Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

**ETA:  I'm also linking this tag up to the Moxie Fab World:  Wonderful Words Challenge.
