Happy Spring Tags {Feeling Crafty}

Of course when I heard our ScrapHappy family was having another tag swap, I signed up to play along and make a spring tag!

I’m totally going to out myself right now… I watch The Bachelor (oh, the horror, I know!!), but during one of the last episodes earlier this year, I noticed how pretty one of the contestants looked wearing a lavender dress with a wall of greenery behind her… That color combo clearly stuck with me and completely popped in my mind when coming up with the concept for this tag! And as Iย fleshed out my concept, I grabbed my chevron stencil for the background and noticed the pattern in one of the hearts in The Crafter’s Workshop Mix & Match Hearts stencil – I thought it would make a great pattern on the egg, kinda made me think of Dinosaur eggs. Yeah, I don’t know why either, but I seriously LOVE it ๐Ÿ™‚

I created thisย video showing how I made it… there’s gesso, stencils, inks, embossing, stamping… a little bit of everything!
