So, I don't normally use my Dylusions Spray Inks because they are very bright and I wear the color for a couple of days! But seeing the Spray and Spritz challenge on Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge blog I figured it was time to break them out. I have a three day weekend due to President's Day so I have an extra day to wear off the fabulously bright colors!
I spent the majority of Saturday playing around with different color combinations and ideas. I have over spray all over things in my craft room. Oh well, adds to the ambiance right?
This morning I settled on the background for this tag. The background is pretty strong which is really something out of my comfort zone. I wanted to try and soften the background a bit and settled on a stamp with flowers. I picked up the Penny Black stamp at my local scrapbooking store on a whim a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those things -- I saw it and figured that some day on some project I could use it! I decided to keep the tag simple and only added a little bit of glitter on the flowers. The sentiment came from my new Tim Holtz "Ponderings" stamp!
I enjoyed my spritizing and spraying! And, Funky Fuchsia is the color of the weekend! Thanks for the challenge from Simon Says Stamp!
The process for the tag and products used are after the photo.
I started out with a #8 manila tag. I grabbed Dylusions Spray Ink in Pure Sunshine, Funky Fuchsia, Dirty Martini, and Polished Jade. I sprayed the colors on the tag. As I didn't want the colors to get muddy, I caught the extra ink with a paper towel. I then heat dried the tag. Next I stamped the sentiment using Versa Mark and embossed it in Ranger's Black Embossing Powder. The sentiment is from the new Tim Holtz Stamps -- Ponderings #252. Next, I used the Effulgence stamp from Penny Black and stamped it in Wendy Vecchi's Red Geranium Archival Ink. The "bling" on the flowers is Stickles in Tickled Pink and Magenta. Once the glitter was dry, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz's Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The ribbon is Dylusions Funky Fuchsia Spray Ink colored. I added a Tim Holtz typed token.
