Tag – You’re It Challenge #2

Posted by on July 18, 2014 in Cuttlebug, Distress inks, Paper Smooches, Tag You're It Challenge | 8 comments

We had a massive response to the first Tag You’re It! Challenge. What’s more, you are in for another treat, as our guest designer for Challenge #2 is one of my all-time-favourite card makers – Laura Bassen! And what a beauty it is as well.

TYIC_2I took some of the elements from Laura’s tag – the leaves, the die cut and the colour. To create the multicoloured sunburst background, I used Distress markers and coloured each ray individually and then spritzed lightly with water before stamping.
