The Challenge is ON!

Happy Monday to you all! I just wanted to start out by saying a huge thank you for everyone that has stopped by the blog and better yet left a message. WOW, over 1000 views!  Your compliments for the blog and tag were so sweet...just makes me want to make and share more. I told myself this was going to be a great creative year and I am loving it so far!

I must say there is a great challenge going on and if you haven't heard about it, head on over to Tim Holtz's Blog for the details.  I think there is no better way to bring on Spring then with a little 'Tattered Floral' action.  I have used this die countless times and love all the possibilities it provides for projects, they are endless.  As soon as I read Tim's post my mind started to go...I could do this; oh no this would be awesome! Well, the decision has been made and i LOVE it!  I hope you all stop back on Wednesday for the reveal and tutorial on just how it was done.  There might just be another surprise in store for you!  Until then I would just like to share the tag I made for Tim's January tag Challenge where I just happened to have used, yes you guessed it...the Tattered Floral die.

For this tag I covered my tag and grunge paper with Ranger's foil sheets.  Using the Tattered Floral die I cut various flowers and painted them with the amazing new distress paints.  Did I say just how amazing these are yet?? A MUST have!  The foiled tag was embossed and distressed also using the distress paints.  

I hope this tag helps to get your creative juices flowing and be sure to check back on Wednesday for my project and surprise. Until then, happy creating! h
