Welcome Spring {Purple Onion Designs}

I'm back with a tag based card that I created for the current Tag You're It (#39) challenge. As you can clearly see,  I am dreaming of spring.

I was inspired by the nature background of the inspiration tag so I stamped a portion of the Birch Tree Background onto Neenah cardstock, cut out with the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #2 die and then colored with Copic markers. Buttercup (bunny) and Robin (bird) were stamped separately onto Copic X-Press It cardstock. I colored them with Copics, fussy cut out and attached to the tag with foam tape. The tag was finished off with Hemptique twine tied in a bow. The sentiment from the Sweet Occasions Sentiment Set was stamped directly onto the patterned paper background then the tag was attached to it using a layer of craft foam.

Products: Purple Onion Designs stamps, PTI dp and cs,  Neenah cs, Hemptique twine, PTI buttons and die, Simon Says and Memento inks, Copic Markers
Copics: Bunny-E40, E41, E42, E44, R20, E81; Bird-B0000, B41, B32, E81, W00, W1, W2; Grass-YG0000, G40, G41, G42, G82; Trees-W00, W1, W2; Sky-BG70, BG0000, BG10

This is the first day of The Daily Maker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I am giving this one a go again. I can guarantee I won't be doing all 30 days as I did in the October challenge since I have way too much going on now. But, hopefully it will help me out of this creative slump I find myself in. I will be posting on Instagram, not here on the blog unless it is a fully completed card, then I will post in both places. I am @nancyhthomas on Instagram if you are interested.
