A Dirty Little Easter Tag

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:

swatch 135 updatedI 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!
