A Dirty Tag and some Great Stamps

I have a craft mat. Love it. Easy to use and easy to clean! Spritz the mat with water when I'm done... and use a tag to clean up the mess! That's how the background of this tag was started. 

Then when I was through 'picking up color,'  I added it to my ring of tags to be used another day...not a bit of ink goes to waste; love my craft mat!

Now when I need a little something I pick up my ring of tags and choose one to start from. It's especially great when I need to use up some bits in my stash or need a little creative help getting out of a rut.

Watercolored the darling Skunk using Distress Inks and Viva Pearl Pens to add dimension to the flower centers and the Skunk's curly top. There's texture via the stamped and clear glitter heat embossed and dry embossed background. Lots of texture! Stop by my blog to see more about this clean up technique.

Just wanted to say, "Wow!" at the number of fabulous entries for this month's challenge...74 at the time of this post. Is one of the entries your's?
