Tag You're It 20

Friday, April 24, 2015

Happy Friday everyone!  It's time for a new challenge from Tag You're It.  This is my first time providing the tag inspiration for everyone to play along with and to say that I'm nervous would be a huge understatement!  It's always a little nerve wracking when you are charged with providing inspiration for other crafters - will people like it?  will people play along?  I guess we'll find out!

The inspiration comes from this tag that I created using a little emboss resist along with some sponged colors.  My redux of this tag is sort of the opposite.  Take a look:

I love the color combo on my original tag but instead of using the same cool colors I wanted to use some warm ones.  And instead of a white emboss resist I used some black die cuts.  And instead of a black sentiment, I went with white.  Talk about polar opposite!

The Tag You're It design team has created some spectacular projects so be sure to check them out.  I hope you have time to join us in the gallery with your tag or your tag on a card.  We love to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful inspiration tag and a wonderful sample. I love the emboss resist and those gorgeous cool colors but I also love the striking black accents on the other tag.

I loved your inspiration tag when I first saw it and was so pleased to make a project for the team at Tag You're it. I love the 'opposite' too, such a clever take on the original.

Such a stunning use of color! the background is gorgeous and so dramatic with the black fern. And I love how the butterfly uses the colors in a slightly different way.
