Tag Tuesday - Brown + Color

Finally getting my Tag Tuesday Challenge #42 posted.... Louise challenged us to use brown plus another color.   The hardest part was picking the other color, since I LOVE to pair brown with just about anything, LOL!  I finally settled on blue, after getting in the mood for the sea with my Graphic 45 papers.  The "tag-on-the-tag" image is from their "On the Boardwalk" collection.  I colored the fab retro lady blue, and gave her a starfish.  The base tag is spritzed with Glimmer Mists, stamped with images from Stampington, Inkadinkado, and Stampabilities, and distressed with Distress Inks.  I added another little accent from the Graphic 45 paper, along with a few more seashells and some Distress Embossing Powder in antique linen to give the effect of sand. 

You'll want to head on over to Kard Krazy..... Louise's artwork is looking fabulous in the new Take Ten!  I am playing catch-up..... we've still got visitors, lots of activities, and I soooo want to visit everyone's wonderful blogs!  Tonight after everyone's in bed, I'm planning on playing with a few Gingersnap Creations challenges, some Playdate Cafe fun, and of course, I've got some new Cornish Heritage Farms to ink up.  So much crafty goodness to be had, so little time!! :)
