Christmas In July

Good evening.  Long work day.  Water coloring to decompress. 

This tag will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV, Christmas In July, Stamp TV, Release Party June 2017, Simon Says Monday, Distress It, and Stamping Sensations, Anything With Flowers.



 
 
I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets; A Year Of Flowers 2 and Peace And Joy.  Stamped in Raven Black ink and then water colored using a water brush with my regular inks in; Real Red and Wild Wasabi.  MFT Stitched Traditional Tags die.
 
 
 

 
 
After it was dried I dropped water drops using my water brush on the entire tag.  Then I splattered some White Craft Paint on it too with an old toothbrush.  Yellow Sakura Glitter Pen for flower centers.  Eyelet, Twine and Button for accents.
 
Quick.  Easy.  Stress Free.
 
Just need night to fall so I can crawl into bed.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
 
Thanks for popping by.
 
Enjoy~~

  3. Fabulous artwork, Donna! The poinsettias have such a rich, velvety brilliance to them - just like their petals actually are! Love how you distressed the background, giving lots of different feels to your tag - a little bokeh, a little distress, a little dancing magic of lights, a little Christmas.... especially the way those festive words are placed around the flowers. I agree! It's dreamy! Perfect to crawl into bed and fall asleep to! LOL hugs, de

  13. What an absolutely beautiful tag! I like how it has those traditional elements of red and green, yet it is so original with the clever placement of the poinsettias. The ribbon is so perfect, too and gives it such a spot of whimsy! As always, I'm so glad you continue to share your amazing creations with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
