ARTY TAG

Time for this weeks DT piece for Creative Expressions and this time around I am using the fabulous Tim Holtz Classic 4 Stamp Collection.
I was really in the mood for some full on colour this week and decided to use Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks to colour my background.
Distress Inks were applied to a Non-Stick Craft Sheet, spritzed with water and then mopped up with the tag.
I also added a two inch square again coloured with Distress Inks and added random background stamping using Picked Raspberry and Black Archival Ink. I applied black ink to the edges of this piece so that it would stand out from the background.
The ribbon has been coloured with Distress Inks and I also added stamping to coordinate with the tag.
Background stamping has also been added to the tag, I love the tone on tone stamping in the background and the black stamping really pops against the background. ART has been added using Signmaker Alpha Parts.
The faces have all then been stamped with black Archival, I love how the background stamping is still visible over the facial images. Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs Numbers have also been added for further interest.
Chitchat stickers also add a further layer of interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Very cool, Tracy - love the colour combination, and dramatic black stamping. The added little square with the pop of dimension is such a cool effect. Brilliant tag!
