Weird, I know.. but I do think I like it!
I actually made this card for the Color Throwdown challenge this week! GASP!! I think it’s been almost a year since I’ve participated with those lovely ladies!! I’m sneaky about it though… I snuck right in and added it to their post!! I sure hope they don’t mind!! I’m still amazed at what I can do with a clean stamping table!! Ahh! It’s so nice to be able to just sit down and get inky for a while if time allows – so nice that I don’t first have to spend an hour cleaning up my last mess so that I can make a new one!!
So here it is … My Dirty Little Easter Tag!!
I had the hardest time taking a good photo – I think it’s the red wall behind it – I
threw away lost my white board background I used before so I’m stuck with this for now.
The color challenge:
I think I got all of the colors in there! My inspiration started out with this FABULOUS bunny sticker from the Idea-ology Salvage Sticker – Seasonal pack. My, this has great stickers in it! Easter, Christmas, Halloween, um… seasonal! ; ) It had most of the colors in there that I needed – I just had to add some yellow. I LOVE that they are such a sturdy sticker that you can sand the edges and even sponge it (that’s where I added the Scattered Straw Distress Ink!!! The word “Easter” comes from the same pack! To make the tag match, I used Scattered Straw and Fired Brick Distress Ink with blending tools and a craft mat. I also made sure I got some splatters of ink on the tag to mimic the dripping paint on the egg. I tore the top section of the tag off, inked it up with Black Soot Distress Ink, then reattached it down a little lower (to make the tag shorter) with my Tiny Attacher. I dyed some Lavish Trimmings with matching ink and added those as well.
I don’t think this is your traditional Easter tag but I do think I like it!
