Make It Monday #258 & Colour Throwdown #407

Well, we have been enjoying spending time at the Morden Corn & Apple Festival.
We ran into some of the kids' friends and I captured these fun pictures:





I also have a tag to share that I made using


I decided to make some tags for Sage's teachers to accompany the butter crunch
that I'll be sending along with her on her first day of school.
I went through my collection of Cover Plates and decided to use my Butterfly Cover Plate
along with my Tag Sale 7 die.


I diecut my tag from Hawaiian Shores cardstock and  applied some Tropical
Teal ink with my blending tool to the bottom half of it.
I diecut the butterflies from white cardstock and applied some bright buttercup
and green parakeet ink using my Clarity Stencil brushes.


I stamped my sentiment (from Tropics) in versamark onto a strip of vellum
and heat embossed it in white.

Thanks for looking!

Looks like you guys have been having so much fun! And what a gorgeous tag! LOVE the colors you used, and your inking is amazing. Adds so much extra depth and interest to both the die cuts and the tag. Love the vellum embossed sentiment strip, too. Gorgeous!!

The Corn & Apple Festival looks like some good old fashioned fun. Bet the kids (and you) had a great time. Your tag is so pretty. Those colors are just gorgeous - there's something so right about blue and yellow together. This certainly pair nicely with the butter crunch...might have to try that next time the kiddies are here. Have a great weekend. Bev
