Tag You're It Challenge #60

It's time for another challenge over at Tag You're It.  Our talented guest designer is Diane Jaquay. Check out her beautiful inspiration.

I'm sure this beautiful tag will give you a ton of inspiration.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  Here's my take on challenge.

I started by sponging a few colors of distressed ink...similar to the inspiration tag.  I then added a bit of dimension to the background with a stencil and white embossing paste.

I then die cut this tree from dark brown paper. I decided to keep in the inner parts of the leaves (though one fell out and I didn't have time to remake this tag).  The back of the paper is white, so the effect of the die cut looks pretty cool as you see a bit of the white peek through. I only glued down the truck of the tree so the leaves are a loose and it provides a nice dimension.

Hope you have a chance to play along, we would love to see what you come up with!



  1. Your tag is very beautiful you cased Diane's tag so perfectly ! These colors are quite in tune with the season! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I think the missing leaf gives your tree a fun look. I love the background colors!
