Hi Everyone!
 Karen here with you today with my very first post for the new design team term! I'm so happy to be back and sharing some inspiration with you all again.  So I'll jump right in and share with you the tag that I created using the awesome new  July inspiration  challenge board
This board is just so me! , neutral colours, a bit of  dreamy, vintage grungy splotchy goodness.. and the colour green! 
Here is what this awesome board has inspired me to create..
I started off with some  Nature Walk from 7 Dots Studio  for my tag base, I couldn't decide which side of the  paper  to use, so I ended up using both.  I've used the Sunflowers stamp with my distress markers to add the base layer, along with the line of chevrons.
 I then inked up the  tall mushroom, along with this mushroom and the girl with wings and stamped them on some Kromecote paper, and added in some colour using a few more distress markers.
I then layered them on top of my tag base, using some foam mounting tape to give some elements a little extra height, and finished off by adding the word Dream, using some alphas from UmWow Studio

 I hope this is leaving you a little inspired, and wanting to join in the fun of this month's challenge! We'd love to have you join us!
Happy Creating
Karen xxx
