New Tag

I've been participating in a monthly tag swap at a local scrapbook store since February.  Each month we get given a theme and the requirement to use the Prima tags.  This month the theme was 'All About Me'.  I like the idea, but get stumped when doing this theme with people I do not know well...
I decided to pick a favourite quote I try to live by and some favourite elements.  After I completed the tags, I thought of a GREAT idea. (figures!)  Anyway, here is my June All About Me tag, step by step:

First I used Prima Hancock Park tags and embossed them using my CutNBoss and it's wood grain embossing folder.  Could do 2 of these large tags in one pass!

StazOn ink was rubbed over the raised embossing and I sprayed the tags with ? spray and used baby wipes to spread the stain... brown fingers for the next 2 days!

This tree stamp is by Magenta and a favourite.  I stamped it and the greeting on textured cream cardstock that has a fuzzy feel to it.  I got it through a group purchase with my stamp club and we dubbed it 'dirty paper' as it feels rather sexy! :)

The leaves on the tree and saying were coloured with my Stampin' Up markers and the texture of the paper helped smooth out the lines quite nicely.  The last thing I did was distress the edges of both saying and tree panels and pop dot adhered them to the tag. 

Hope you like this attempt at showing some of what I am about...
