Tag You're It

Hello! I am back with a tag for the Tag You're it Challenge #48.

This was a fun challenge. A good theme for Memorial day weekend and looking ahead to summer and the Fourth of July holiday! I took my inspiration from this tag to create a patriotic tag.

I dug way back into my  stamp collection to find this SU! stamp from 2001! It was a special edition stamp they made in honor of the 9/11 tragedy. I think it works pretty well for this weeks theme!

I colored directly onto the stamp with Tombow markers. Added a few gems for sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Barb
