First for me…….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing along with AAA Cards Challenge and the Muse Challenge #79.

I wanted to take this time to say Thank you so much to the ladies over at the Muse Challenge for choosing my card for Honorable Mention.  I really appreciate it. If you missed the card you can find it here.

Now on to this week’s challenges.  I had a lot of fun creating my project for these challenges.

Both of these challenges used Water-coloring, which happens to be my favorite.  I decided to do something a little different then what your use to seeing.

I created a TAG!!!  Yes, a tag and its not on a card.  This was a bit of a challenge because my working area was smaller then a normal card size.  I wasn’t sure if I needed to fill all of the space or should I leave some empty areas.  It took me one hour to decided just on that.  LOL!!!

Take a look at my TAG:

Watercolor Thanks

To create this tag:

I used a piece of watercolor paper and my Koi watercolors to create my background.

I cut my tag using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 Dies.

I cut my thank sentiment using Simon Says Stamps Thanks Die out of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock 4 times from some dimension.

I used my Stampin’ Up! Bitty Butterfly Punch and Elegant Butterfly punch to punch out four butterflies, 2 from my scrap watercolor piece and 2 from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

I added My Mind’s Eye White Enamel Dots to the center of the butterfly for detail and more contrast.

I punched a hole in the top of my tag using Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ Circle Handheld Punch.

I added 2 pieces of retired Stampin’  Up! ribbon and tied it with Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine.

Thats all!  Very easy and fun to do!! I hope you give it a try.  I will be making more tags from now on.
