Tuesday Talk

Today I'm sharing a tag I created for the challenge at Tag You're It.

Such a pretty inspiration image! Here's how I interpreted it:

I was so taken by all the multicoloured umbrellas that I decided to try to create an umbrella background for my tag using a stencil. I used six Memento teardrop colours taking the ink straight through the stencil from the ink pads.

Then I stamped, die cut and coloured the cute MFT umbrella boy and popped him up onto pads for extra dimension. I also stamped a sentiment from the same set and cut it into two to make it fit. I finished off my tag with some multi coloured strands of twine.

Stamps: MFT, Puddle Jumper
Inks: Memento, pear tart, lady bug, dandelion, elderberry, danube blue, bahama blue, tuxedo black; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Stencil: Carta Bella, Deco Dots
Dies: MFT, Puddle Jumper, stitched traditional tags
Pens: Copic, R20, E000, E00, E23, E37, E70, Y13, Y18, YG13, YG23, B00, B02, B04, R29, R39
Twine from my stash

Huge thanks for dropping by my blog today, I'm so delighted that you did.

And keep crafting!
