The House That Stamps Built: Designer Choice Challenge

Laurie's choice this week at The House That Stamps Built: we have
the fun theme of "Tag You're It" anything having to do with a tag!





I started by smooshing Distress Oxides on a tag, used a stencil with 
water to remove some areas and splattered water.  Repeat Impression
 Random Dots and  Birthday Vertical.  Card base is embossed with
Tim Holtz Gridlock texture fade embossing folded, gold embossing


Join our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the
 $25 Repeat Impression's  gift certificate. you don't have to use
Repeat Impression stamps but an extra chance if you do.  
Drawing is the first Wednesday every month.

Ink Smooshing is on my list of techniques I want to try - love the colors you used on your inky background and then I saw the butterflies - love the butterflies - then I saw the embossed card - and then the Happy Birthday - great tag on a card.

What a fantastic tag! I love the embossed background. I've always enjoyed embossing, but have found that I've been drawn to working with it all the more in the past few months. It's fantastic to see examples like this terrific project as they really do provide so much welcome inspiration.
