Jackie Rockwell has done it again! She's created a fun new challenge blog
dedicated to TAGS and I'm so honored to be on the inaugural design team!

Tags can be used to decorate gifts, or added to a card or scrapbook page.
The possibilities are endless and the main thing is to have fun when you're creating them.

We're launching the new blog with a mini challenge courtesy of Karin Åkesdotter,
our first guest designer. Here's Karin's adorable tag.


And here's how I was inspired--ink distressing and a super cute image!


I ink distressed watercolor paper and flecked water only on the top portion.
I finally inked up Mama Elephant's Up and Away set and colored the monkey and umbrella
with Copics. The sentiment is from the same set.
I trimmed the piece into a tag shape and tied on a bit of coordinating twine.


I decided to attach the tag to a card that was stamped with Hero Arts'
Tiny Flags Background stamp. I swapped out the twine for ribbon
 and added a few enamel dots for fun.

Visit the Tag You're It! Challenge blog for all the details and to meet
the rest of the design team and see their tag projects.
After you've been inspired, join us and see if you're tagged as the winner
on Friday, July 4th.

Thanks so much for stopping by and we hope you'll play along!
