Tag Time


Today is Tag Day, well for me at least.  This first tag was inspired by Keren Baker's distress ink stencil tag on the Paper Artsy blog.  I went for red and blue, and before I knew it, I was making a Union Jack tag.  Very patriotic.  So it fits nicely with the new Mixed Media Mojo Challenge - patriotic.  And it's my final entry into Winnie & Walter's Share The Love week with Distress Inks - Tag It.






With this second tag I'm playing at the new Tag, You're It challenge, where the inspiration comes from Virginia Lu.

I went for the same colour combination and added black flowers.  And because I used one of my Dina Wakley birds, I can also enter it into Just Us Girls, where it's a word challenge - Bird.

I'm over on the STAMPlorations blog today for a Spotlight feature using the cake stamp, gelatos and embossing paste if you want to pop over for a look.
