Tag, You're It! #81: Pantone 2019

It's great to have the Tag, You're It! challenge back up and running!  The challenge theme will vary, and this time we have a color challenge to use the 2019 Pantone color of the year:  Living Coral.

I had a bit of a Pantone predicament, a coral conundrum, if you will.  I pulled out every coral coloring medium, ink, embellishment, and paper I could find, and quickly became overwhelmed.  I didn't realize I had so much coral in my midst.  I dibbled and dabbled with every bit of it, to the point where one would think I was decorating a room rather than making a tiny tag.  Slowly, I eliminated element by element and this little shaker tag came together.

Dies:  MFT Tag Builder Blueprint #4, PTI Wet Paint Cuts, LF Quilted Backdrop
Stamps: HA Dot Moire, HA Damask Background (background tag)
Ink: Lindy's Magicals Cosmopolitan Pink, Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral, Catherine Pooler Coral Cabana
Other:  Glossy Accents, Crayola coral/gold glitter glue, large flower sequins - brand unknown, Making Memories Funky Fibers
