Colour Me.....Hello!

Saturday, September 13, 2014

It's been a dog's age since I posted anything here so I figured I'd better pop in with a little tag I made so you all didn't think I ran away!  I started making this last night and then put it aside while I waited for some embossing paste to dry.  I finished it up this afternoon and am just now getting around to posting it.

The colors of my tag are from the very cool palette at the Colour Me challenge.  Just eyeballing the design team cards and the gallery I was so impressed with how pretty these colors looked together that I wanted to make sure I played along.  The layout is my somewhat liberal interpretation of the Deconstructed Sketch.  I followed the layout of the sketch, but instead of a square base I used a tag!

Well that's it for me.  Back to the old craft cave I go to get a head start on this week's projects.  Thanks for stopping by!
