Tag You're It Challene - Week 46

Morning Taggers
Another fabulous response to last week's "Love & Romance" challenge and beautiful tags from everyone....we love having you all join in the fun each week and such a talented bunch of taggers.
The challenge this week on Tag You're It  is from my lovely and very talented team mate Dawn and is

Circles and Swirls
I struggled a bit with this one folks.....yes although I have been crafting for absolutely yonks....I still struggle on the odd occasion and this one came so close to going in the bin......but I didn't have a lot of spare time this week so it has slowly grown on me and I rather like it now.
Started off by stamping the image three times onto the tag......then stamped it again 3 times onto white cardstock......coloured the background with Cranberry Paint Dabber watered down and applied with  Cut & Dry Foam......cut out circles with Nestabilities Scalloped Circle and placed them exactly over the image (a technique called spotlighting).   Covered swirl with Cranberry Paint Dabber and overstamped with a text stamp......sanded the edges.....then doodled the edges of the tag and matted onto black cardstock.
Cardstock White
Image: Stampendous "Agapanthus Cluster"
Swirl: Woodware Chipboard Shapes
Ribbon: American Crafts
Gemstones: Kaiser Craft Black
 Ranger Cranberry Acrylic Paint Dabber
So get the thinking caps on folks and get tag making......can't wait to see the fab creations from you all this week......will be popping over to check them out......
And what am I doing today.....a little bit of shopping.....no NOT CRAFTY SHOPPING..unfortunately....all the boring but necessary things to finish off my family room make-over.....curtain pole...door handles etc.....back later with a little toot.........Hugs Kath xxxxxx
