MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ hello!

Hello!  How's your week goin' so far?  Mine?  Just wonderful!  Today over at My Creative Time it's Tag It Tueday, and I wanted to try something a bit different...a tag on vellum.  In all the years of papercrafting I don't think I've created something where the base was vellum.  I could be totally wrong though :)

This won't work with all vellum, since most are too flimsy.  I used Papertrey Ink's vellum, it's super strong, yet still sheer.  I LOVE using it!

Being in California I know we haven't had that hard of a winter...in fact we are in our 2nd or 3rd year of a drought.  Water is always a big issue here, so they always cry "DROUGHT" even when it's just below the norm :/  However, I'm still looking forward to a true spring (we did have a warm weekend) so I came up with this fun tag.

On the white background square, I stamped a mix of "script" and "splats".  For the tree after stamping and putting it all together I thought it was lacking something...so out came the wink of stella shimmer.  Some type of sparkle always seems to finish it up for me. :)

On the green "doily"  I used the scallop circle die then hole punched the scallops.

The vellum is a cool sheer backdrop for your sweet hint of spring tree with the one leafy branch. Love the spatters and wink sparkle. Great job
