Tag, You're It! #51 with Donna Mikasa!

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to Friday and a new Tag, You're It! challenge!   There are some exciting new changes at Tag, You're It.  This term we are introducing a Featured Designer for each new challenge.  Our Featured Designer will create the tag for the inspiration.  Starting with challenge #51 our first Featured Designer is Tag, You're It Alumni member Donna Mikasa!  We will still be having a Guest Designer each challenge so nothing changes there.  Hope this new format brings even more excitement to Tag, You're It!

Now, on to the tag!  It's summer here where I live, and a perfect time for frozen treats and flip flops.  I colored up this cute Wryn from Tiddly Inks using Copics, added a gem to her hair clip and shimmer to her ice cream.  She's all ready to celebrate summer:
My tag was inspired today by the extremely talented and wonderful Donna Mikasa!  There's so much to love here on her tag!  Look at her watercolor background; I had to follow along with that.  I love the strength of her black sentiment and elements, so I carried that through on my tag as well, except I decided my enamel dots needed to spread some extra color around my tag.  I opted to ink up the stamp in black simply because it worked better with my focal image, but I love Donna's white heat embossing and the blending of her colors!
How will you be inspired by Donna's tag?  I would love to see your creations linked up over at Tag, You're It!.  Head on over to the blog to get much more inspiration from our amazing designers!
