A Face And Some Sunshine Colours

Hello there my friends,

It's funny how sometimes we can have a complete lack of mojo, and at other times, the ideas just keep on flowing, well I'm very pleased to say that I've had a very happy and productive morning  in my craft room and here's the result:


I have to say that I've fallen in love with this tag.  I'm not really sure why, or what's different about it. Maybe it's just the warm, bright colours.  I actually started out with the intentions of just adding colour and stamping, but then one thing lead to another and I couldn't stop myself, so it's ended up as a piece of mixed media and I'm very happy with the end result.

I started by stamping the face and masking it to protect the image. I then used my Ink Dusters to add some colour to the tag. Next, I added some torn pieces from a book and then coloured over them too. The stamps that I've used are all by Inkylicious and the inks are: Distress - Fired Bricked Red; Carved Pumpkin; Impress: - Old Rose and Versafine Black Onyx.

The die cuts that I've used are by Tim Holtz and Tattered Lace and the butterfly is one that I printed out and then fussy cut out.  I finished by adding a black lace bow to the lady's neck, which I felt gave the tag the balance that it needed.

I'm entering this tag into the following challenges:

Such a beautiful tag, Sandra! Isn't it just awesome when the mojo flows and everything falls into place like this? Love how you have used our colours, and the white face really pops even if it's mostly in the back. Great result. Thank you for joining our May colour challenge at Rubber Dance ♥
