Tag You’re…it Challenge #2

Hey everybody,
Hope you enjoyed playing along the Tag you’re It challenge #1 with Virginia’s Tags. Today, I have a new tag challenge for you from Tag You’re It Challenge. The inspirational tag for this challenge is from the very talented Laura Bassen. This is Laura;s gorgeous tag.
I love Laura’s use of colours on the background with emboss resist. The gorgeous vellum leaves and the offset sentiment is awesome. I tried to recreate that on my tag below.
I have used Hero Arts/ Studio Calico diamond background stamp on the background which I have white heat embossed. Then I colourewashed three distress ink – Worn Liptstick, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries. I love how distress inks blend. For the elements on the cluster, I have used the Lily Die Namics from MFT which I coloured using copics. The wood veneer leaf is from Simon Says Stamp June card kit. The vellum leaves are die cut using Palm Dies from Hero Arts. The bird cage is diecut using Memory Box cut out of silver glitter paper. The XOXO sentiment is die cut using MFT Hugs & Kisses die namics which is stacked glued and brushed with Wink of Stella pen. I then mounted this tag on my card front. I love the grey background on the card front which makes the card pops. The black glitter strip coordinates with the black sentiment. really love how my tag turned out inspired by Laura’s tag.
