Gettin' Taggy

     Sometimes I just feel like pulling out the inks and going free-style with some tags. I don't think I've given away many tags, so I have a pretty big collection, but there's something about the pure creativity of a blank canvas that you can alter like crazy that really appeals to me. (Sometimes I have a huge back-log of cards too, and as much as I love card-making, that pile is staring at me waiting to be mailed!)

     Last weekend I did two tags. The first used some unusual colors (Pool Party and Pumpkin Pie) and one of my favorite stamp sets, Rue Des Fleurs, a retired SU set with awesome vintage images. I used a few images from Creative Elements too, which I've used SOOO much already.

     For the second tag, I went totally Tim Holtz. I inked, then embossed the umbrella man, inked some more, masked some clouds, and then distressed with acrylic paint. I wanted to give the effect of sunshine coming out after rain. It's been a while since I pulled out the Tim Holtz, and I had lots of fun!

Thanks for stopping by today, my friends!
