Bright & Cheery...Bring on Spring


Over at the PaperArtsy blog it's Michelle's turn again.  She's made a wonderful vibrant tag, pop over here to see what colours she used and how she did it.  I used London bus and smoked paprika (orange), then pumpkin soup (yellow) and beach hut (blue), I got the green by putting the blue over the yellow as Michelle suggested.


I used the oriental text stamp from the Ink and the Dog Asian #3 plate.  I stamped in blazing red, pumpkin and mustard stazon on the co-ordinating colour sections.


I stamped the birdcage from the Hot Picks 1004 plate onto acetate and cut it out.


I stamped the same oriental text stamp with versa mark ink onto black card and brushed with various colours of perfect pearls.


I then mounted everything up after stamping the main tag with a crackle stamp inked with tarnished brass distress stain and added the little quote from the same Hot Picks plate.
