Tag You're It Challenge #68; Time Out Challenge #80

Hello there, blog friends ~
I've been playing in my craft room and would like to share a tag and card I created for some fun challenges:
First up is a tag I created for the current Tag You're It Challenge. Gayatri designed this adorable tag to inspire us:


Here is my take on the challenge ~ 


I inked the English Brick stencil on the textured side of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock to add dimension, and colored the pups with Copic markers. A bold red die cut sentiment and some Glossy Accents on the tiny hearts, and that was it!

*****************************

The theme for the current Time Out Challenge is ‘Inspired by Words’ and the words are
'When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars'. 


I'm a big fan of rainbows, so I watercolored the MFT stitched hearts to create a banner, inked some clouds and added this cute little chick for fun! I also created a mask and inked the grassy hill, then added a few sparkly hearts flying out of the envelope!

So, that's it for me! I hope everyone is getting ready for a relaxing weekend ~
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Adorable couple of cards, Barb! The cute puppy and mommy are so lovely together and I think warm gray and red are the perfect color combo for them! The second card with pastel rainbow hearts is so pretty!
