Pink and Orange Tag

Hi guys,

So a brand new challenge topic is up over on the Paperartsy blog - the first one for 2017. The topic is pink and orange, and if you want to see all the challenge info please click HERE

I had a play to join in using some of the brand new Tracy Scott stamps (ETS06) that I got the other day.

I blended lots of shades of pink and orange onto a size 10 tag. I used Leandra's scrubby brush technique to blend them and add layers. I used pink peony archival ink to stamp one of the large flower heads all over the background.

I stamped and cut out the various layers of the flower onto painted card and used foam pads to give it some dimension. The photos aren't great as it's dark so these have been taken under artificial lighting.

The 'dream' down the left hand side is from one of Lin Brown's stamp sets (ELB30) from last year.

I added some book page along the bottom, which has been stamped using one of Tracy's other stamp sets (ETS01) released last year. Then added flicks of gold paint and and gold border to the tag.

Don't forget to visit the Paperartsy blog to see all their new releases for 2017 and to see all the fabulous projects for this new topic!

Thanks for looking,
