Blue and Orange Colour Challenge Tag

Time to join in once again with the fortnightly challenge over on Tag Tuesday.  The current challenge is a colour challenge - blue and orange.  This is my response.
Add the top layer of an inky paper towel to a #8 manilla tag with matte medium. Seal, dry and trim the excess.
Add stamping in Bluebird archival ink using the Harlequin Mixed Media stamp from Clarity.
Add further stamping in Forget Me Not Archival ink using the sonnet stamp from the Mixed Media Journaling set.
Stamp Linda Williams’ Spring Girl onto Clarity stencil card in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Colour the image using Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils, a mix mat and watercolour brush pen.
Stamp the image directly onto the tag in Cobalt Blue Archival ink.
Fussy cut the girl and umbrella and add her to the tag over the stamped image.
To finish, add one of Leonie’s Words stickers and tint it with one of the watercolour pencils.

  2. Oh I just love this!! That little girl is having great fun and you have captured the colours beautifully!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Tag Tuesday!

  3. Aww, a sweet tag! What can be more fun on a rainy day when you’re a kid! Even when you know Mom’s not going to be all that happy about what you’ve been up to. No harm done with puddle stompers on though, right? I loved reading your process.
