Tag Your it... week 44

Wow what a great response last week for the purple onion sponsored "purple tag" Thank you to everyone that joined in - its going to be a hard task for Michele to select her favorite....

This weeks challenge is a sketch drawn by the lovely and talented Kath-

So, taggers, do what you will - copy it direct, flip it, whatever you fancy - can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

I don't do sketches very well, perhaps I think I need some more practise!

Here's my tag:-

The background was a sheet of brown basic grey paper which has pink flowers on it, I stamped a text stamp in black and then using a purple onion swirl stamp, stamped and heat embossed with gold. The edges of the tag were distressed and then swiped over with a brown chalk pad. The three squares are a piece of white card which was painted with stream dauber and then smudged over with cranberry - I then heat embossed the mosaic stampers anon stamp, placing Tim Holtz fragments over selected areas I cut them out and then adhered to tag, some string threaded with beads made the braid for the top and a printed sentiment finished it off.....

Pop on over to Tag you're it and see what my DT fellow members have created!
