Tag You're It! ........ Inspired by Donna Mikasa

While I was visiting some of my blog friend's posts, I came across Donna Mikasa's blog post.
Donna is an amazing card maker and today she is a guest designer over at Tag You're It challenge blog.  I love visiting Donna's Three Umbrellas blog.  She is the Queen of CAS cards.

So here's her inspiration tag
Isn't it just gorgeous. 

My inspiration was the background water colouring, her beautiful flowers and her enamel dots...Ok so I've CASE'd her tag!

I started by die cutting a little tag using a Pretty Pink Posh die.  I made my background by scribbling a Timbow marker onto a piece of laminated card, spritzing with water and smooshing my tag onto it.  I did this a few times to get the depth of colour I wanted.  I added some black and clear striped washi and then some stripes of silver glitter washi.  I silver embossed a flower stamp (from a big set of stamps I got with a magazine a couple of months ago) and used Zig markers to colour, then fussy cut.  The sentiment is two stamps from the StampNation Beautiful World kit.  I popped the flower up with foam tape.   I finished with some 3D Pearls.  I picked up a set of 12 colours at the Craft Fair last week. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope your weekend is full of crafting and not much housework!!!!!
