Tag You're It Challenge #67

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was surprisingly quiet. We started off by going to Cirque du Soliel on Friday night. We saw "Toruk." It was a more theatrical production then I expected but really good. The sets for the show were AMAZING!

It was a good ending to a very bad week. It was a great way to set up the much needed weekend.

Today I had some time to make a tag for the "Tag You're It Challenge: #67." I had colored in the flowers that I wanted to use over the week but never had the time to put together the tag.

Please excuse the bad lighting on this photo. Once again I was playing around with lighting and still do not have it right. I only have so much time these days so re-taking photos is not a priority!! The tag that this was inspired by is below.

The inspiration tag had a flower so I decided to use the Altenew "Beautiful Day" set to stamp and color in. I have had this set sitting on my desk for a while but never cracked it open.

The inspiration tag also had a blue background with a doily like element. I used Tim Holtz's "Ornate" stencil with Hero Arts "Tide Pool" dye ink.

I layered everything on the tag and used Altenew's "Label Love" stamp set for the sentiment. I finished off the tag by covering all the flower elements with Spectrum Noir "Clear" Sparkle Marker.

I thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week!!

This is so beautiful Nora. I love the soft colors of the background and your coloring of the flower and leaves is so realistic!

What a lovely blossom tag!! Beautifully colored!
Have to say ... the very moment I saw your first picture in this post ... I thought >> "Cirque de Soleil!" I saw their Beatles show in Vegas a couple of years ago ... and will always always be a fan of theirs now! Magical work, isn't it?!

DH won't go to see Cirque.... But that's alright. Looks like you had a wonderful time, and like the show was really cool. Speaking of cool, this cool tag is the winner for sure. I love that blossom and the beautiful colors you've used for it. The doily stenciled background is really wonderful too. What a beautiful tag!! Bev
