Garden Party

What a wonderful lot of tags last week, it was lovely to see so many varieties again.  Many thanks for letting me know that what I did was right, I wasn't sure if what I had was ephemera and I'm not confident with collage at all. Perhaps I should pracitse more. But thank you again.

Onto this week; my tag is very simple and I really like the colour combination, which I used deliberately because they are the colour theme this week on the Summer of Colour challenge and I think they are perfect for a garden party also. 



I used a large tag which I covered in Apple Green Inktense pencil and then wet it down. I mixed a nice shade of pink with my luscious Koh-I-Noor paints and drew some balloons on top of the green but they didn't show up very well so I drew some on card, painted them and then cut them out to layer onto the tag instead.  I painted on the strings with a darker green.  I stamped some bunting to the top of the tag with pink Pixie Dust ink from Memento, (what a lovely name ~ Pixie Dust). Unfortunately tho', that didn't show up very well either, so I painted over it with the dark green. I used my pink Wink of Stella brush to add some sparkle to the balloons, a ribbon tie, and to add some details on the bunting. I also used it to stamp some tulip heads and then painted some dark green stems onto them. I tried to use matching ribbon for the tag tie.


I'm really looking forward to seeing all the Garden Party entries for this week. Until next time, take care, and be well *hugs* Mo :o) x

  5. I didn't realize, at first, that you were using the Summer of Color scheme for this week, and I was thinking, she could have used this for SOC. I like the simplicity of your plain background and balloons.

    Thanks for viewing my SOC for this week.
