Tag, You're It! #71 Week 2

Each Tag, You're It! inspiration is now open for interpretation for an entire month.  I personally love this format because usually by the time I get to play in a challenge, it's already gone.  We are in the second week of our current challenge and our team has another batch of tags influenced by Lindsey.  Here's mine:

And here's Lindsey's beautiful tag:
I really wanted to practice my no-line coloring some more, so I chose these two gnomes, positioned them like the two tulips together, and gave them predominately red and green outfits.  I love the crisp red and white of Lindsey's tag, so I kept very close to her design.  I debated whether I should keep the background white, but once I committed to the blue, I kept it as smooth as possible to reflect Lindsey's solid (white) colored background.  In hindsight, I think it's too flat for these fellows, but there's always next time.

Here's a close-up of these two rascals:
Now looking at them I think, "why did they shave off their eyebrows?"  Next time I'll have to remember to give them some old man fluffy eyebrows!

Here's how they looked when I initially determined the position of these stamps, before stamping them with masks and in light ink:

Stamps:  MFT You Gnome Me
Dies:  MFT Thanks and Hello, MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 4 (the red circle)
Copics:  0, E000,00,11,40,41,42,43,44, W00,1,3,5, C00,1,2,3,5,6, R24,27,29,59, G20,21,24,28, BG000, B00,02
Ink:  Memento Desert Sand
Paper: PTI Pure Poppy, Neenah Solar White
Other:  Ribbon and twine from Michaels

I hope you will join us this month over at Tag, You're It!  If you go over to the TYI blog, you will see from the design team that there are many ways to interpret a tag!  Thanks for coming over for a visit.  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
