We have a mini challenge today for you inspired by our guest designer Karin Ã…kesdotterWe're calling this a mini challenge because it will only run for 5 days. Our regular challenges will be every other week. We'll be focusing on creating CAS tag projects that will stretch our creativity. First up to inspire us is Karin Ã…kesdotter with this ADORABLE summer scene tag!



I really love how Karin used  distress inks to create the background. So with that as my inspiration and made my tag below.

Ahoy Matey tag!

To create the waves, I used the old method of tearing paper and using it as mask to sponge distress ink. That is what I did using four colour distress inks - Faded Jeans, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers, to create waves on my tag. Then sponged Squeezed Lemon  and Mustard Seed distress inks for the sky for a sunset look. The pirate ship stamp set and die is from Clearly Besotted Designs. I simply die cut the ship and stamped on it. Finally stamped some skull on the waves, the sentiment on the top, assembled the ship on the tag. The other sentiment is stamped on a strip of cardstock, trimmed and foam mounted on the tag.
 Please read the HOW TO PLAY ALONG page before creating and submitting your tag related project. When you've created your project come back and add it to the Inlinkz.

We'll announce who's project was TAGGED a WINNER on Friday, July 4 at 9:00am EDT. Our first official 2 week long challenge will also begin then, with a special guest designer!

Now it's your turn. READY, SET, GO!
When you've created your project come back and link IT up.
