Hello and Thanks...Tag You're It Challenge #4

Hello...
I blubbered my way raced home after work (oh, the torture...), aiming to post the two tags I made for Tag, You're It Challenge #4 before we headed off on a much needed hike to Johnston's Canyon.  Marion's tag is pure delight....


In my first attempt, I was aiming to replicate the inlaid die cuts, with PS flowers that I sponged.  Okay, I guess, but I was hoping for something much prettier...


Round 2 tag...went back to my much loved butterflies and dragonfly...and all three are sponged (pink, yellow, coral...well, technically 'cantaloupe'), then coated with a hefty helping of stickles.  Sparkly....


My husband's home...time to hustle and shuffle our way up and down that gorgeous canyon!

NOTE:  Super thrilled and honoured that my tag was a Favourite over at Tag, You're It Challenge #4. I'm wowed by this!! THANK YOU!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day.

Just beautiful, both of them! Those inlaid and sponged flowers in the first tag are so pretty with the gems in the center and the second one is a sparkly piece of art!

Fabulous inlay on the first and adore all that green on the second an wonderful placement of the dies.

Both are so cute! I just ordered those butterfly/dragonfly dies and I have definitely filed away your lovely "cantaloupe" coloring for my future use - they are beautiful, particularly on the green and woodgrain. I hope you had a wonderful hike!

What do you mean that you hoped for something prettier?!!! That first tag is gorgeous with your inlaid dies!!! I love how you inked up the butterflies and dragonfly-that I will have to remember to do. Both of your tags are fabulous Carol and I'm glad you got home to get them in the challenge. Hugs, Brenda
