There is a new challenge in town. It is called Tag You’re it challenge. Jackie Rockwell has start this one too. You should have heard of The Cutting Edge challenge which also started recently.
It is all about tags. You can make a tag by itself if you are fond of making tags or you can add the tag you have made to your card or scrapbook page. You can even make a tag on journaling card. It is up to you. How cool is that?
And I am excited to announce that I am part of the design team. Thanks a lot for having me on your design team, Jackie! Check out Tag You’re it challenge Blog to see who else is on the team to inspire you with their gorgeous tags/tag based papercraft.
We have a mini challenge today for you inspired by our guest designer Karin Åkesdotter. We’re calling this a mini challenge because it will only run for 5 days. Our regular challenges will be every other week. We’ll be focusing on creating CAS tag projects that will stretch our creativity. First up to inspire us is Karin Åkesdotter with this ADORABLE summer scene tag!
I really love how Karin used distress inks to create the background. So with that as my inspiration and made my tag below.
To create the waves, I used the old method of tearing paper and using it as mask to sponge distress ink. That is what I did using four colour distress inks – Faded Jeans, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers, to create waves on my tag. Then sponged Squeezed Lemon and Mustard Seed distress inks for the sky for a sunset look. The pirate ship stamp set and die is from Clearly Besotted Designs. I simply die cut the ship and stamped on it. Finally stamped some skull on the waves, the sentiment on the top, assembled the ship on the tag. The other sentiment is stamped on a strip of cardstock, trimmed and foam mounted on the tag.
Please read the HOW TO PLAY ALONG page before creating and submitting your tag related project. When you’ve created your project come back and add it to the Inlinkz.
We’ll announce who’s project was TAGGED a WINNER on Friday, July 4 at 9:00am EDT. Our first official 2 week long challenge will also begin then, with a special guest designer!
Now it’s your turn. READY, SET, GO!
