Simon Says: 'Tag You're It' on the Wednesday Challenge

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is

Tag You're It 

Make a tag or add a tag to your creation!
This week we are showcasing Ranger Products this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used Watercolor Paper, White Gesso, a selection of Distress Inks Pads and Set 1 Distress Crayons to make a bright spring tag.

I am going to tie this onto a lovely little shrub to give to my Dad for his garden when I get there next week!! I can't wait to see my family and friends, quite a lot has been happening lately and it will be so nice to see them all :-)

I started by painting gesso onto the watercolor paper tag base, I left definite brush strokes in there to give it some texture. Once dry I scribbled Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron crayons over the top and then blended them with a little water and my fingers. 

I stamped the wildflowers in Archival Black and then used a Bubble Stencil and White Embossing paste over the top to add more texture and interest. 

I coloured the butterfly with Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks and then stamped some text onto the wings in Archival Grey. 

I really love how this has turned out and had a lot of fun getting inky :-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

Beautiful tag, Lols - love your idea of using 2 shades of grey for the wildflower, and everything looks so pretty against the blue background!

It's beautiful Lols and I agree with Lin about the Wildflowers.
Sending hugs xxxx (btw if I don't speak to you have an amazing time)

What a gorgeous tag you have made the play of colors and the beautiful butterfly.
I am so glad you dropped by asking if I had got your mail
I did and was thrilled to reply back with a big Yes...not sure how it got lost in the virtual world.
