This week, week 2, the colors were teal and coral with a pop of white. So, to me that said sea life and this is what my tag looks like.
I started out with a number 10 tag and I colored it with Peacock Feathers DS. Then I used this great new spray that I found at Joggles. It's from Lindy's Stamp Gang and it's called Starburst. It's a wonderful spray which has a non shimmery base and a wonderfully shimmery top. Unfortunately, by the time I finished my tag you can't see too much of that wonderful shimmer!! Oh, well, I know I'll be using it again. Anyway, the color that I used is called "Jack in the Pulpit Teal". Cool name, right?
I sprayed the entire tag and then used a paper from Graphic45's summer paper collection called By the Sea. It's a wonderful coral color and it has a wonderful overall sea life pattern. Those of you who follow me and/or Linda from The Funkie Junkie, might think this design looks a little familiar. Well, that's because I'm playing along at the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog this week. Linda is the host for this challenge and she decided since it's 6 months since the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style challenge, which she hosts, ended perhaps it would be fun to recreate one of the tags from the challenge only with a summer theme. So, I decided to use tag number 4 for my entry. You can find out all the details of the challenge here and you can see tag number 4 from the 12 Tags here.
What I really liked about this tag was the linear look it has. I loved the letters on the burlap squares and I loved the border that balanced it on the other side. So, I used some teal paper in place of the burlap and I used a die cut white border and a printed border on the other side. The sea life stamps are part of the Graphic45 collection. Before I glued everything down I edged the tag in white embossing powder. Once all the paper was in place I glued a Lucite starfish to the top of the tag, and glued some teal shell sequins and small wooden beads randomly. Here are some details.
So, there you have it. I really love this combination of colors. I don't think I've ever used it, at least not together, but now I love it and that's the great part of the Summer of Color! Stretching and using colors you don't use, or don't use often.
Thank you for stopping by. I love having you and I love hearing from you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get some time to be creative.
