Hello, Gorgeous!

I totally love the colors presented in The Ton Stamps Color Pallet Challenge for June, 2017.

Details here.
I've been going through my stash looking at things I've had for a long time and trying to use them.  For whatever reason, I purchased two of these blank, unfinished wooden tags!  Anyone relate?  Anyway, this was my starting point to come up with something using these beautiful colors!   I first stamped the Wishful Wildflowers in navy ink then re-stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I used Zig Clean Color markers to watercolor them.




I lost count of how many times I switched directions and changed the colors/textures on the tag!  Then I had to decide how to arrange the florals from Wishful Wildflowers.  After it was finally done I have something that I can present!  I went WAY out of my comfort zone creating this project, but it was fun to get my fingers inky and paint stained!

Thanks so much for taking a look!

Supplies:
The Ton Stamps Wishful Wildflowers stamps/dies; Peony Cluster Mini for sentiment
Inks:  Simon Says Stamp:  Soft Navy, Audrey Blue; Versamark Clear
Distress Paints: Abandoned Coral, White
Zig Clean Color:  Wine Red, Dull Blue, Pink
From my stash:  ribbons, trim, beads sequins, corrugated paper, doily, miscellaneous stencils
