A little me time...

Hello again friends!

This morning I got up way before Wildman with a project on my mind. I wanted to participate in the new July challenge over at the ColourArte Monthly Challenge Blog. Here is the clue below:
We were asked to create a project using these primary colors. The only other rule is the project must feature ColourArte Products. That's pretty simple as I love all the goodness! Here's my project:

It's been a long time since I created a tag - I use to host monthly themed tag swaps! So, I took a queue from the recent Tim Holtz Monthly 2015 Tags, but used my own stamps, ColourArte Twinkling H2O's, Bazzill CS and Strathmore water color paper. I stamped my images in VersaFine so the ink wouldn't bleed when it got wet. I water colored with the "twinks" adding a bit of dimension with my Distress Inks markers. I added more water to my mat with the "twinks" to create my little flicked splatters of color - love me some splatters!

I cleaned up all the ink using my Seam binding ribbons in turn giving them just the right colors I needed. I also strung my sweet little charm with matching beads and added this to the bow as I tied it to the tag. The "laugh" side cut actually has 3 stacked and glued together for bolder dimension and I gave it a bit of ink too.

That's it - another sweet little project. I really like it and will try to make an art journal page that resembles it this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles & Hugs!
