Love to Create challenge - TAG, you're it!


(PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY!)

Good morning everyone!!! Happy Monday!!!!!
                                          This week the LOVE TO CREATE Challenge is 
TAG, you're it!!!  
So let's see your tags, or your creations WITH tags on them!!!


Our sponsors this week are Eureka Stamps & The Stamping Chef.  I have used Rocking Retro by The Stamping Chef.

The sentiment was a freebie, but for the life of me, I can't remember where I got it from!! I wanted to keep it fairly simple so you could see my background.  The rainbow ribbon is from my stash.
The tag is a manilla tag from Tim Holtz and the groovy background is the SHAVING CREAM TECHNIQUE.  I put a glob of shaving cream on a plate, dropped in a few drops of SU reinkers (blue, pink, purple, yellow) and swirled it around with a chopstick!  Then I dragged the tag through the shaving cream, scraped off the excess & let it dry!!! This one was actually my 2nd try - the first try I put way too many drops of purple...I like the effect and will use this tag, but it didn't look right with the image!  Here it is so you can see it:  
 


Thanks for stopping by!!!
Head on over to the challenge blog to check it out!!! HOPE to see you joining us!!!!!
Hugs,
Chris
