Tag You're It Challenge #51--Featured Designer

As a former design team member of Tag You're It Challenge I was super excited
with Tracey's invitation to join Challenge #51 and create the inspiration tag.
If you're not familiar with TYI, go here to see all the challenge rules.

After die cutting a tag from watercolor card stock, I watercolored the
background with a Zig brush marker and water brush and helped it spread
over half of the tag. When the tag was dried, I added a strip of striped paper
for a bit of interest.

The flower and leaves were white embossed and inked with a dauber and
Distress inks, then die cut with the matching dies. They were adhered to
the tag with dimensional tape and the sentiment was stamped above it.
Black enamel dots and some hand dyed rayon ribbon finished off the tag.

Visit Tag You're It Challenge to see how my tag inspired the design team and
come join the fun!  Link up your tag(s) by Wednesday, July 20th, and the
winner will be announced on July 22nd. Hope to see you in the gallery!
