Tag! you're it!

Astrid from the Stampotique dt is hosting this fun challenge.  She says:

" This week it's my turn to host the challenge and I ask you to make
  something with a tag. For me a tag is just a little playground, it's just
  for myself. So make something for you!  Be you and have fun with this week's
  challenge :-)"

Who doesnt love a tag?  I made a few.   I picked up my "only" Golden brand acrylic paint in gold and I pulled it across these first two tags with a credit card...awesome shine!   I usually use Liquitex which I think is fine and Golden paints are out of my price range (for now anyways :)   Then I stenciled with TCW clouds stencil (blue) , gessoed thru some sequin waste and outlined with a black sharpie.  White pen is a signo uniball.  The image
"flying bird"  was actually stamped on a piece of scrap painty paper and cut out for the tag.
                                                On the right I used "heads" over a same back ground and sponged and sprayed ink.  I just cant get a pic to show the beautiful shine behind the images.                                     
 The tag below is one I made a while back but havent shown.  I did some purple acrylic sponging thru a stencil from Michaels and tore some tiny book page pieces that were painted green.  The black sun is a stencil too.  I colored "whisker monster with sign" with copics, cut him out and popped him up on the tag.  I plan on stamping some brown craft roll similar so I can wrap a gift with the matching tag on top.
Thanks for looking on this Wednesday "hump day"!  Hope you will join in on this easy challenge and get a chance to win some cash to spend at the Stampotique store.

These are terrific tags, I love the tag with the bird dancing, although he looks a bit serious about it.

Jane, your tags make me want to race up to my art room and play with acrylics paints and sequin waste. Your colors are so bright and beautiful. Liquitex seems fine for making gorgeous tags. Love the great designs. Thanks for dropping by my blog this morning.

Hi, Jane! I love all three tags, and each for a different reason, but I am IN love with "heads!" I can quickly think of another dozens captions to use with the heads. That is now a "must have" on my wish list! Thanks for the inspiration!
