Sprout Grow Bloom!


I love how this tag came out... the pink and yellowy orange just looks so good!!  It was just play and wanting to get my fingers painty.  I started with a #8 manila tag and used my fingers to paint on Fresco Finish paint bougainvillea and tangerine twist, 2 of the colors in the newest Lin Brown Limited Edition paint set.  I stamped the large flowers and grasses with Archival Ink jet black.  They are both from the PaperArtsy Darcy stamp set EDY09.  I painted in the flowers with snowflake paint and on the larger petals added a sceond heavy layer of snowflake in the center area.  I added some stamping in the background (I know I should have done this first, oh well) with bougainvillea and snowflake using a couple of PaperArtsy Sara Naumann stamps from set ESN11.  I stamped the small flower from the same set as the others with Archival Ink saffron.  The words are from the Darcy set EDY05 and are stamped with jet black.  I used my finger to rub the snowflake paint around the edges.  I've used crinkle ribbon at the top colored with watered down tangerine twist.  A couple of sticky back gems for the center of the flowers.

Great color combination for the background. I would never have thought of using pink and orange.
