Tag You're It! - Colorful Stars

Oh it's been so cold here in the Chicago area lately!  Like below zero wind chills that make your face burn like it's on fire!  At least the sun is shining, and if you take a jar of bubbles outside, they will do some very cool things!  Yep!  Break like glass!  Oh the things we do for fun!  LOL!  We don't stay outside for long, and even the dog seems like she's ready to come in the house in a hurry!   

A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It!  Oh.. but the tag isn't a tag this week!  What to do!!!  Well, you can make a tag, or you can make a card!  Whatever you do - HAVE FUN!    That's easy peasy with this rainbow of color on the sample from Donna Mikasa this time!    

I will confess I made about FOUR different projects for this, and still so unhappy with my watercolor skills that I just gave up and went back to my treasured die cuts.   I turned the colorful fishies into stars with pretty button centers.   All my stars are inlayed so Yep!  I ran this puppy through my die cut machine 10 times!  so happy with the pretty stars though with stitches inside and out!
Check out what the rest of the team made and link up your designs here!  Stay warm and have a great day!.

That's what always gets me...your cards are so sharp and clean cut! I love that and 10 times through the cutting machine? Good grief, that's devotion!!
Beautiful work on this 'tag' and it's a gorgeous rendition of the inspirational fish.
At least you tried water coloring though :)
hugs,

So late in commenting for this card, sorry!
I love all the die cut stars, sometime its just best to stick what works best for us , but I bet your watercolors were beautiful too.
