Tag Your It Challenge #26

No tennis or bike riding today.  My husband and I are heading up to San Francisco for a meeting. On the way home, we are going to stop by a patio store and hopefully pick out a new out door lounge set.  We have an old garden set and would like to update it with some lounge seating to better enjoy our outdoor space.

It is time for another new challenge at Tag Your It!  This inspiration tag was designed by Marybeth.  I like the simple design as it provides lots of opportunity to get creative.

I'm hope you choose to play along, as I would enjoy seeing what you come up with.

Here's my tag:

I was inspired by the simplicity of Marybeth's design. I focused on the die cut image and ran with that idea.

For my tag, I used this tree die and cut the tree and leaves in different shades of green.  I then stamped my sentiment with pigment ink.

I created my own patterned paper for the shadow tag.  I used the same shade of green as the tree and used clear embossing powder over the image to give it a tone-on-tone look.

In the end a very clean and simple tag!
