Tag You're It! Karin Akesdotter

OK When I saw that Karin Akesdotter was the designer this time at Tag You're It! Challenge I just had to play along!!  I was first introduced to Karin's designs through Waltzingmouse Stamps, and since then I've been a big fan.  I look for her when I'm flipping through publications, and I can usually spot Karin's projects right away.  She tends to gravitate to earth tones, and usually incorporates nature into her designs.  She always amazes me when she's inking up backgrounds for her designs too.

This tag is me impersonating Karin!  First I'm stamping on Rustic Cream Cardstock and while I'm afraid of earth tones (LOL!) I stuck a few in here for mossy green fronds surrounding the little mushrooms.   Of course I had to brighten things up a bit with the yellow accents, because it's still me here,  but I think you can see her influence.  I was sorely tempted to put a natural twine string through the top, but I'm casing not copying right?     

Thanks for stopping by!  I have two posts today. If you are hopping along with Poppystamps and CardMaker Magazine today, just click here.

Her tag is fabulous but seeing your take is wonderful too. I really enjoy the lean towards the fall with the pops of yellow. No wonder you like her work, she's incredible like you!
