Just Taggin' Along!

The theme for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "a tag".  Having recently got a bumper pack of manila tags, I was all set for this theme! :)

I started off by using an ink blending tool and distress ink pads in Barn Door, Wild Honey and Walnut Stain to create the background. The circles were stamped in Coffee archival ink and the fleur de lys, stars and clock were stamped in black archival ink.  Finally elements were painted with an artists paint brush using paint dabbers and highlighted with a white pen.

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
