TGIF! This is the first Friday I've had to go to work in a couple of weeks and I've got to say that I'm not loving it. I could get used to getting off early on Thursday then having a three day weekend every week! But alas reality sets in and I'm back to my regular Monday to Friday thing. But the good news is that we're back at Tag You're It for a new challenge!
Isn't Tracey's tag adorable? I didn't have any elephants but I did have this cute polar bear and thought he'd be an ok balloon holding substitute. Tracey's watercolored background made me a little nervous, since me and my watercolors are barely on speaking terms, but my friend Karren recently turned me onto a watercoloring technique from SonjaK that I thought even I could do so I decided to give it a try for this tag.
I'm pretty pleased with how this came out. I smooshed some pretty colors around until I was happy with the look then popped up my bear and gave him some heart shaped balloons to hold! Easy peasy. And since Seize the Birthday and Stampin' Royalty are looking for birthday projects I'm going to add this to those challenges as well!
Well that's it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out the other tags from the Tag You're It Design team. I hope you can join us in the gallery!
