Tags, Tags and More Tags!

There are a lot of wonderful tag challenges out there and while I don't usually make tags, I've been caught up in it.  Today I have three tags to show you, each for a different challenge.  Tag You're It! is an ongoing challenge so I'll start with them and their inspiration tag.
No birdhouses in my stash so I used my little Stamplorations 'condo' and colored it with Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Neat and Tangled.

The wonderfully creative Tracey McNeely is the owner of TYIC but she also has another challenge running right now.  She has a ton of sponsors and you can win by either commenting on her blog posts and/or making tags of your own.  You won't want to miss the tags made by the sponsor Design Teams.  If they don't inspire you nothing will.

  Here is the link-up post.  My card was inspired by this one Tracey did on day 2.

I went with a darker background, stamping the trees from Avery Elle in Unicorn White and then white embossing them  I wanted them really white.  They are birch trees after all.  The Peace die from TH was layered three times with silver on top.

Next up is for
This is a mixed media challenge and Loll has a lot of her friends showing off their skills every day.  Even if you don't do tags or mixed media you NEED to go see these wonderful creations. It has taken me a while to get my tags done but I have one for you today and another one for later.
I layered up a die from PB, colored it with Distress Ink.and when dry covered it with a thick layer of Crackle Paint.  It's hard to see the cracks in the photo.  While that was drying, I stamped my tag with MFT's  Pinstripe in Fog, a FS border stamp all over in Peeled Paint and then did the edges with Frayed Burlap.  The sentiment is SSS.

I forgot about a couple of other tag challenges.  (How could I?  Slap me up the side of the head, Kylie)  I'm sending the holly one to Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Tag Challenge.
The Peace on will go to HLS's Christmas Challenge - Tag.


Even if you don't make tags, you really should go check out all the inspiration on these blogs. Some of the techniques and layouts could be used on cards, too.
