Tag You're It!

There's a new challenge on the block called Tag You're It!  They are on to challenge #2 already (I missed the first one because I was on vacation).  I love making tags.  Don't know why, but they are just so fun to make!  Laura Bassen is their guest for this challenge and I just loved her tag.
 
The colors and grid grabbed my attention.  I had a Hero Arts grid pattern stamp that I've had for a while, but never used.  So I decided to dust the cobwebs off of it!  I started with die cutting a tag from distress watercolor paper then embossing it with the grid pattern stamp in white embossing powder.  To color the tag, I used three gelatos in lemon, mango, and melon.  I put some color down and blended them together with water and a paint brush.  Love the look!  The "hello" die was cut 5 times and stacked together.  I shimmered it up with a Wink of Stella shimmer and glossy accents for more shine.  I placed it on a black banner to ground it and added some sequins and baker's twine.
 
Now I have to find a gift bag to put it on!  Thanks for stopping by!
