Getting messy for the Artful Times Challenge




Good morning followers, friends and blog ladies, again I am at the last minute with my entry for the Artful Times Challenge which is"Colour Technique". 
 
 I have been putting it off because I wanted to use some Dylusion Ink Sprays which I bought last year and never got round to using, to my surprise it was not too messy and the inks did spray where I wanted them, although I now have multi coloured hands.

Inspiration was taken from the PaperArtsy site and a tag created by Linda Cain.  I started by spraying the Dylusions Inks, sunshine yellow, turquoise and lime green, directly onto the tag until I had the colours and finish I wanted.    Dylusions Around The Edge leaf stamp and circles were stamped in black Stazon, I drew a few circles and added some black splats then highlighted areas with a white  pen. The tag was backed with black card and decorated with white dots.  Stamped tape, ribbon and cords were attached along with a word tag which had been doodled on and backed with black to match the main tag.


For my first effort with the inks I am very pleased with the results, must find time to play around more and try other techniques.  Now to crack on with Tim's 12 Tags of 2013, it is nearly the end of February so I only have a day to get this done and posted.  Will be back soon.

Hello Sylv, I think your tag is beautiful, the colours are wonderful and I love how you backed both tags with black, that really sets the colours off well. Your stamped ribbon is the perfect finishing touch. For a first attempt this is amazing. Thanks for your visit too. Hugs, Anne x
