This tag started out soaking up an excess mixture of Dylusion's Postbox Red and Pure Sunshine Spray inks. It made for a vibrant red-orange background for this lovely vintage floral stamp from Inkadinkado. I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers in Vintage Photo and Old Paper to go over the shading of the stamped image. Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed markers were used to add a little yellow to the center of the flower. I went around the outside edge with Picket Fence. Then I added script and swirl stamps to the background (using Distressed Ink in Frayed Burlap), flicked with water, stuck on some pearls. and added text on a scrap of paper left over from my pile of last week's attempts.
Hopefully color makes you smile as well and you've had some quality time to make something colorful of your own this week.
