Welcome back to my first post of 2016 for Visible Image, yay! We have some awesome new teamies, hope you can make the time to visit and share some love on their blogs, too. I have them all listed on the sidebar to the left.
I started off with a tag shape and I fully intended for it to be a tag with ribbon and all....but it sort of stayed as a small canvas. I am happy with the bright result, hope you like it!
The base of my tag is heavy watercolor paper. I chose to use the smooth side, for me it makes a better stamped impression. I stamped the Plasma, Ink Splats and Retro Dots Background stamps in clear, bright white and red embossing powders before anything else.
When I start a project, I rarely know where I am going with it. I mean I have an idea, tag, canvas, ATC but I never know where I am going to end up. With this one, I had a moment of panic and almost tossed it aside. The red plasma was so opposite against all the white I wasn't sure what to do. I let it sit....and sit....and finally came back (days) later to attempt to complete it.
For the background I used Nuance water soluble powdered dye available here. I love the bright intense colors they create. The embossing acts a wonderful resist. Once I got the warm colors on the paper, I felt much better!
For the focal point I used one of my favorite sentiments, "Listen to your Heart" from the "This is Me" stamp set. I think I just need to remember to listen to my heart more and shut the nagging brain voices down, what do you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
hugs 'n peace,
