You're Swell

The ol' Creative Palette blog is busy this week but I couldn't resist the new Tag You're It Challenge especially since I love tags either standalone or on a card. There is a short window for the first challenge and I'm getting it in under the wire with this CAS card.

I cut both the tags using the WPlus9 Timeless Tags 2 set from patterned paper and used the Taylored Expressions Wave Border die to cut the water from patterned paper and from white cardstock. I stamped the lighthouse from the Reverse Confetti Happy Harbor using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid ink and then the fish using Stampin' Up Midnight Muse ink. After coloring the lighthouse with Copic Markers, I fussy cut out both images. The fish image was attached with dimensional dots as well as the lighthouse at the top. After stamping the sentiment onto the smallest tag I attached to the larger one using Hemptique cord. The tag was placed onto a white cardstock background cut with a Lil Inkers Designs Stitched mat which was then attached to the MFT Nightshift Blue cardstock. All the patterned paper came from the Fancy Pants Nautical pad.
