Tag You're it #2 {thanks}

I missed out on last week's Tag You're It challenge. Boo! So,  When I saw this week's I sat down right away to play. I looove Laura's style and the water colored, embossed background was too fun to pass up! 

I even pulled out an OOOOOOLD school stamp from Stampin' Up! My woodgrain background. Seee! I knew there was a reason I hold on to my crafty goodies. I feel like I saved money, shopping from my stash. lol. 

Here is my tag. 

I clear embossed the woodgrain background onto some Tim Holtz watercolor paper. Then I used my distress inks and my acrylic block, spritzed it with some water and smooshed the color onto the paper.

 I let it dry and then used the LID Anytime Tag Die  to cut it out a rounded tag. 

  I added the awesome brushstrokes word Thanks die cut from navy cs and then accented the tag with some wood veneer stars, vellum Stitched Stars and 6mm sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Here is the challenge graphic:
