Bloom Today


For this tag I started with a #8 Ranger Manila Tag and brayered on PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints.  I used blue oyster, smurf, wisteria, yellow submarine, and bougainvillea.  The stamps I used are from the PaperArtsy Jofy set #34 and bloom is from the Jofy stencil #PS008.  Over the background I stamped "yesterday...today...tomorrow.." with Archival Inks pink peony and buttercup.  It's very faint but does make a different.  The flowers and words along the left and bottom edge are stamped with Archival Ink jet black.  "Bloom" is stenciled with bougainvillea paint.  The flowers are painted with bougainvillea, yellow submarine and snowflake using water along with the colors.  Doodling (and extra white dots in the background) is done with either a white Posca marker or black Pitt pen.  "today" (part of the whole line of yesterday... today...tomorrow) is stamped on a white scrap, cut out, and glued on. To finish it off I coated the front with a thin layer of Satin Glaze and then tied ribbon through the hole.
