Welcome to another Challenge Me Monday...

Challenge #228 Tag You're It

~This Weeks Challenge~
Tag You're It!
Create a project that uses a tag

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

For my project this week I started by creating a background on a plain off white piece of cardstock cut into a tag shape. My diecuts are from the Straight From The Nest Cricut cartridge. The feather is cut from watercolour paper and the bird from vanilla cardstock.

Since I simply love all things Distress I started my background by stencilling Mustard  Seed Distress Paint on the Tim Holtz Sunray stencil. Then I sponged Distress Ink over top.  This is one of my favourite techniques! I love the way the paint acts as a resist and really pops!

I then stencilled with Distress Inks over the heart Tim Holtz stencil and a Heidi Swapp stencil and added a stitching stamp before attaching my feather. 

I added a couple stamps with black ink. 

To colour my bird and feather I used another fav technique and smooshed Distress Inks on my craft sheet, spritzed them with water and pulled my diecuts through the inks. 

I used some Festival Hemp cord at the top of my tag - I love the bright look of this tag! We had snow this past week here, so this was the perfect thing to brighten up my craft room :)

I hope you all enjoy a fabulous week! Be sure to check out all the fun tags the rest of the Design Team has put together for this challenge at FCCB and enter your own for a chance to win an awesome prize!
