I couldn't decide what direction I wanted to go in with this color combination. I love it so there were several directions I could have taken. But, in the end, I decided to go with my favorite, flowers! And, I had to throw in another favorite, a flapper bathing beauty!!
I started with a number 10 tag, as usual, and colored the background with Ripe Persimmon and Picked Raspberry Distress Paints using the marbling technique. Once that was dry I sprayed it with some Dylusion sprays in the same colors. I finished by spraying some of the wonderful new sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang using a glimmery coral pink and an light orange. Once all of that was dry I used StaysOn ink in Claret and a Wendy Vecchi background stamp to add some texture to the background. I cut strips of paper from one of the sheets from last year's Graphic45 Bohemian Bazaar collection. Over the glued down strips I put the word "summer" in grunge board letters that I painted with Mustard Seed Distress Paint and sprayed with Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle. I gathered my collection of raspberry, orange and yellow flowers and glued them to the opposite side. I stamped the flapper in Picked Raspberry DI and colored the parasol with light orange Copic marker. Once it was all dry I nestled her among the flowers. Here are some details.
So, there you have my tags for the Summer of Color. I want to thank Kristin for all the hard work she does to make this the success that it is every year. I've decided that next week I'm going to make a box to hold my six tags. I was going to make an envelope book but they became more dimensional than I had envisioned. So, a box it is. Stay tuned for that!
Thank you all for visiting me today. I've so appreciated the wonderful comments you've left on all my tags this summer, as well as on my other posts. Have a wonderful week.
