Tag You're It Challenge #38

It has been a wet week so very few outdoor activities this week---until today.  My husband and I were able to play some tennis this morning---yeah! Then we are heading off for some lunch together.  And on top of that it is the first Tag You're It Challenge for 2016! What a great start to the coming weekend!

The inspiration tag is from our fearless leader Tracey McNeely!  This tag is so cute--love the elephant and the soft colors.

I was inspired by Tracey's watercolor background and colors:  grey, red and a splash of yellow.  Here is what I came up with...

I cut my tag from watercolor paper, then added lots of water to the paper.  I used some distressed ink to create the background.

On cardstock, I stamped my two images and colored them with Copic markers---keeping with the colors Tracey used in her design.

I then stamped my sentiment on some black cardstock and heat embossed it.  I popped up my spaceman and planet on foam tape and that was it!

Thanks Tracey for the inspiration!
