Color Tag

I knew as soon as I opened the simon says stamp website and read the title, i knew i had to make a tag for it. the challenge was "color" and i can say that color is my favorite thing in crafting! so i decided to take it literally and make a rainbow background tag. here it is in full.

To get the Colorful Background, I used Dylusions spray Inks in Bubblegum pink, Lemon Zest and Vibrant Turquoise
 then i used the new distress paint in picket fence to add a very subtle layering in the background. lastly for the background, i stamped little lacey cirlce's in vintage photo distress ink in 2 different sizes to make it interesting.

then, i just shuffled through my box of things and found some different embellishments that i thought looked ok haha. i used alot of 7 gypsies things and some tim holtz idea-ology things and just like that it was done!

I'd say is a little different from my normal look, but no matter how funky it looks, it still has character and looks cool!
Thank you so much! I will be entering this tag on the Simon Says Stamp blog.

12 Tags of 2012-April

Hello Everyone! Its hard to believe its almost the end of april! time is literally flying! So this month i decided to try out alot of new products i had purchased and can i just say i LOVED them all! i tried out the Liquid Pearls and the new distress paint! Awesome products! i hope you enjoy my tag of april!

to make the background, i used Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers, and Squeezed Lemonade
i stamped a damask pattern in white distress paint  overtop of my background. then its time to embellish. i stamped a butterfly and colored it in to match the background. then i used tims technique to make the 3D wings with the plastic then to heat it up and shape it. but i covered mine in line patterns using a glue pen and the Distress rock candy glitter.

I used liquid pearls to add dots all around the tag where it need an extra "somthing". i poured glitter into a bottle to kinda look like " love dust" haha I thought it looked cute:) i just added a few more embellishments here and there and Done!

Thank you soo much for reading!! it means sooo much!! Im gonna start blogging more i promise, ive just been having somthing like "writers block" or "artists block"

Thank You:)
