What do you say?

......is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week and my words are chit chat stickers sitting on a VERY bright extra large tag. The background is the summer limited edition set of distress inks and they are bright and a lovely addition to the collection.

I've inked the background first direct to the tag with the three inks and then inked with black soot through a prima floral mask. I also inked the die cuts and flowers (die cuts are Memory Box, Sizzix Tim Holtz and Magnolia). There's doodling in blue and white pens, Maya Road resin flowers, pink crystals and lovely May Arts black saddlestitch ribbon to finish off.

Enjoy your evening :)

Hi Chris. I really like your tag. It's so bright and colorful. I really like Tim's mini birdhouse, the tree and the flower die cuts. Your doodling with the white and blue opaque pens really add a lot to the tag. That black ribbon with the white stitching on the edge really is the perfect accent to do with your tag with all the little doodles. Great job! Thanks for sharing your tag with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
