Back with Some Color

I have taken a few days off with my family. Of course, I took some of my craft supplies along. Here is a tag I've been working on. It's just a product of playing with ink, paint and stamps.  I love the colors. 

I stamped the designs at the bottom and top of the tag with black Versa Fine ink. I colored the designs with Barn Door, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Tumbled Glass, and Mustard Seed Distress Markers.  I painted around the top design with Wild Honey Distress Paint and a water brush. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, Distress Marker and a water brush to cover the remaining space on the tag.   I distressed the tag with sand paper. I then applied Walnut Stain Distress Ink to those edges. 

The sentiment was stamped on white card stock. I used a metal slide to attach the fiber cord to the tag. 

I intend to live life by this sentiment.  This tag is a pretty good start :).  Hope  you are having a colorful week as well. -- Mary Elizabeth

Oh yum... I love the colours too, and how they're so vivid and vibrant in the stamped designs, and so soft, blended and distressed in between. Brilliant tag... Hope you're enjoying your family break.
