in the hurried frenzy of last minute "to do's"... I've been sitting in my chair and pausing. I highly recommend it for health and sanity! This week I found a couple of challenges that tied in nicely with
the direction I took with this tag.
Louise over at Kard Krazy selected a color challenge to use green, yellow, and brown in your tag. Well, the first two colors are beloved in our home as they are our University of Oregon hues. And we are National Championship Bowl bound (see yesterdays' post). I must say the addition of earth tone kicked it up a notch. I love how the brown grounded the green and yellow.
I was also inspired by Louise's two page spread in Stamper's Sampler to use sentiment stamps in other ways. Congratulations, Louise! My Stampers Anonymous sentiment is oriented horizontally. I decided to use it with the Dynamo label maker and an unknown alpha set inked with Tim Holtz DI walnut stain. The wonderfully cozy wing chair is from Hot Potatoes.
The foundation of my tag is rich kraft. A call was issued this week to make kraft creations at City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #35. I admit I don't use this versatile color enough. Thanks for putting it in the spotlight this week, Ladies!
