 Hello everyone,

I try to play at Tag Tuesday if I can, great themes and enjoy the challenge of making tags, big or small and this week I have made four tags, all the same but different, and this is tag one.

The theme over there is green and blue and I thought what fun to use water paper again and mu Nuvo shimmer powders and a bucket of water, well, nearly, you need quite a bit...
and there they are, 4 panels.

This one I die cut an Altenew "Spring Roses" die set flowers so pretty, and glued them down..

Then die cut again in navy blue and very carefully..

Inlaid the petals, such fun and not hard to do..

Only a little bit of naughty language when the die ripped and the bits I had still in there flew around the craft room..

But eventually it was done and all I added were some quotes stickers from Tim Holtz..

and added black squiggle lines around each one..
" Be in love with your life"
" Be open to whatever comes next" 

and there you go..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

A gorgeous tag Chrissy- this makes a lovely bookmark. Such a pretty background and the inlaid die cuts are stunning- wish I had your patience!

I don't recall seeing a "distressed edge" tag before, Chrissy, and it looks great, ESPECIALLY with the background and beautiful flowers layers layered atop!

Beautiful!! I love this and those colors. Outstanding! I'm so bad about making tags and never even do them until someone hollers that they need one. Then I rush around and try to get one done. I love yours!

Your background is lovely and the inlaid is so pretty against it, I hate when I lose one of those tiny inlaid pieces and then I am searching for 10 minutes trying to find it, then cutting another piece and then finding the first.
