Hi everyone! I didn’t really have much of plan when I started on these, I just wanted to do some coloring. So I picked out Simon’s Floral Mix background stamp to heat emboss with gold on some Distress Watercolor Cardstock. Then I pulled out my oxide inks and painted them. When I was done I thought it needed a little more definition in places and I used my color pencils. I deliberately left some of the 5 3/4 X 5 3/4 stamp unfinished, on the border of the stamp, because I kind of liked the look of it. I’m not sure anyone would even notice if I didn’t point it out though.
When I was done with the coloring I decided that I liked how richly colored and summer-y it all looked and decided to make tags with my little painted project. I used a sentiment from Spellbinders which I think is called Express Yourself Stamp Set, but when I went to look for it on Spellbinders website, I couldn’t find it.
Basically because they’re tags I wanted them to say “For You”, and I liked the scripty font used, I thought it went well with the richly colored images. You probably have something else in your stash that would work the similarly.
I hope that this inspires you to make something new today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
