Happy Saturday! Today I have a tag to share using a couple of stamp sets from the *new* May TAWS release!

I followed the current challenge at Tag You're It! #20, which is this beautiful tag by Jen Mitchell.  As you can see, I pretty much CASEd everything:

I die-cut my tag from Coconut Swirl cardstock using my SPD gift tag die.  Then I stamped the 3 different aquatic plant images from Little Fellas and Gill Friend in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I used Broken China and Shabby Shutters distress ink pads and my mini blending tools to ink the tag.  The embossing resisted the ink, but I still rubbed the embossed part with a dry paper towel once I'd inked the tag, to ensure there was no ink remaining.  I then splattered the tag with some water. Once that was dry, I stamped the "Get Whale Soon" sentiment from Little Fellas in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the right corner.  I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp the cute orca as this ink gives great coverage for solid image stamps, then I fussy cut it out and popped it onto the tag using foam pads for dimension.

Gill Friend is FREE when you spend $40.00 or more (after shipping) at The Alley Way Stamps store during the month of May 2015.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
