Inspiration Emporium...Go Fly a Kite challenge for August

Inspiration Emporium http://blog.inspirationemporium.com/?cat=18 is having a Go Fly a Kite challenge for a chance to win $50 in Emporium Dollars.  I flew many a kite as a young girl and have fond memories of hot summer days in my backyard flying the highest of all kites and for the longest time. I had fun with this one....attaching tissue tape for the tail of the kite and making a spool out of two brads to wind the black string around that is in the little girl's hand.  The ribbon has a brad in the center to make it appear as being the sun.  I stamped on specialty paper and embossed it to make the kite then sprayed it with various ink sprays that I made with my re-inkers and perfect pearls. The background of the tag is sprayed with the re-inkers and perfect pearl sprays too.  I then used walnut stain distress stain to blend the colors together.  The "k" has been stained with broken china distress stain.  This was a fun tag to make!
