I admit it. I have tag-phobia. I don't know why. I don't know if I had a bad experience with a tag in my childhood (come on, really?!). But I generally don't like making tags. Weird. I know. Hey, I've been called worse! lol!
But my friend Kim is the guest at the current Tag, You're It Challenge, with an adorable inspiration, so I decided to face my phobia and play along!
I focused on Kim's:
-colours - brown, blue and green
-animal and fish theme
I used 4 colours of blue and green distress ink and smooshed a watery background on my tag (leaving a white area for my sentiment) and left it to dry while I watercoloured my otter, fish and starfish. I used the wet-on-wet technique with 4 colours of brown for the otter and am happy with the resulting shading and blending.
