Zesty, Zingy Colours at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog

Hello again and welcome to my inspiration for our new challenge at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog which for the next fortnight has the theme of Zesty Zingy Colours and I can't tell you how much I loved this!

My inspiration is a tag and I hope you like it.

I recently got my painty mitts on some more new Dinky Stencils which included the gorgeous floral one I used here called simply Fleur. Isn't it just gorgeous!
I made the background on my That's Crafty! Surfaces Size 10 White/Greyboard Tag with Paper Artsy Fluid Acrylics in Banana and Guacamole with a bit of Pebeo Studio Dyna paint in Iridescent Green/Yellow.
I then used the Distressed Harlequin Dinky Stencil with grunge paste to add some raised pattern areas. When it was dry, I dry brushed on some of the Pebeo paint in Orange/Yellow.
I used the Fleur stencil with the orange Pebeo paint to add some flowers to the tag. I then stamped on some text using the Tim Holtz Ledger Script set with Ranger Lime Green Dye Ink. I used the stamp without an acrylic block in order to bend it to fit the available spaces.
I stamped the text from Paper Artsy Lin Brown ELB15 set with Archival Fern Green ink and finished off with a butterfly from the Tim Holtz Watercolor set stamped with the same ink, painted with the Pebeo Iridescent Green/Yellow and cut out. I tied some wired ribbon through the top.

I hope you can enter as there's a fab prize of a voucher for the online shop for the randomly drawn winner.

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
