Happy Saturday everyone!  The challenge over at Just Us Girls is a color challenge this week, and Vicki has chosen a monochromatic blue color combo.  Great challenge!
 I was a little concerned about what I was going to do, but then remembered  a technique I saw the fabulous Tim Holtz do in a video in this post (scroll down to the second video to see it).  I started by applying Weathered Wood distress paint using the dots from the Dylusions Dotted Flowers stencil.  Then I added the following distress inks on the entire tag:  tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean, and faded jeans.  Next, I used the same stencil and faded jeans distress ink to stencil the flowers around the sides of the tag.  I then added the feathers (from Fanciful Feathers by WPlus9) stamped in faded jeans and the sentiment from Strictly Sentiments (also WPlus9).  Last, I sprayed Perfect Pearl mist on parts of the tag.  In hindsight, I wish I would have stamped the sentiment and feathers in black ink, but I was trying to keep true to the challenge.  I added some blue burlap ribbon, seam binding, twine and a charm to the tag to finish it off.

Stop by these blogs to see what the design team did with this color challenge.
