Celebrate Summer!

The last Share the Love challenge at the Winnie & Walter blog is Tag It!  We're to use our distress inks and at least 1 W&W stamp to make a tag.  I am really growing to enjoy making tags.....they're just a smaller canvas than our usual cards!  Here's what I did:

W&W Tag it!

supplies: Memory Box Texture Shine stencil, Hero Arts long retired Summer Memories stamp, W&W The Big, the Bold and the Extras, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, and mowed lawn distress inks

I started by stencilling the sun rays in yellow with a touch of orange, then overstamped the Summer Memories twice.  I stamped, sponged, and fussy-cut the flowers and leaves, and overstamped the "celebrate".  My seam binding is also hand-dyed with worn lipstick distress ink.

Can you believe we're coming up on half-way through summer!  We have to enjoy every minute of it!  Thanks for visiting today!
