Rainbow Tag Book


 Hello Monday, my friends! And welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  THANKS/THANKSGIVING Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is: TAG IT!

I had fun creating a rainbow tag book full of bright colors and bold designs. I've used a number of Darkroom Door stamps in honor of Rachel Greig,who sadly passed away this August...she is deeply missed in our creative community.  

I used my lovely Pawsitively Saturated Inks from Simon Says Stamp in a rainbow of colors.

I love these funky tags from Studio Light, and ink smooshed each side with a color.

Then, I stamped the background of each tag in the same color to get a tone on tone design.

For my cover tag, I inked the stamp up with cool colors, then warm colors and stamped it onto the natural tag.

I cut some additional tiny tags, colored them with ink smooshing, and stamped the background in black ink.

Meanwhile, I stamped flowers on watercolor paper and blended the inks over the stamped image. These small blending brushes are a favorite of mine, as well as this cool holder fro them, all from Simon Says Stamp.

Add a bit of gold with a pen...then fussy cut them out.

On the cover, I put cool tags on the warm color background and added a matching flower.

And warm tags on the cool background...

I added some Big Chat words from Tim Holtz, so my cover would read " create dreams from your heart."

My rainbow tag book filled with inspiring quotes and tied together with some hand dyed ribbons.

I've flipped through each of the tags so you can see them individually.

I hope I've inspired you with my tag book! Make some tags of your own and share them with us this week!
