It's Tag You're It Challenge time again, everyone...
... and you know what that means?
It means I had a tag to inspire me and to ponder over before coming up with my own version.
My fellow DT buddy Anja Curvers came up with the most beautiful design for this fortnight's challenge. But before I show you her tag, here's my version...
Now take a look at Anja's tag. Can you see why I love it so?
I must admit this stamped image with the very bold outline wasn't the look I was going for and I'm not sure I could recreate it again even if I wanted to. I was experimenting with ink to stamp/stamp to watercolour paper/spritzing stamped image with water and this was one of the results. I think my stamp wasn't completely dry when I inked it up and created this version. It's kind of messy, but I kind of like it... I think!

CAS Mix Up
(Stamping, Die Cut, Water Spritzing - plus two Punches and some Stencilling)
I really wanted to enter this design for your feedback Bonnie and Loll (as I need to know if this 'works' or not), so I made it into a tag card as the challenge rules only mention cards. Am I correct in saying you are a card challenge only? And is it ok to have more than three components or not really?

Of course, I may look at this card in a few weeks time and think 'what on earth was I thinking'...
So... If you have the time, please let me know your thoughts.
If enough of you like it I may have to try and recreate my experiment. If not, then thank you for being honest. It's all trial and error to me, but I'm hopefully making some progress!!!
Thank you for stopping by today...
... and if you have the time and are feeling inspired, why not join us for this fortnights challenge?
