Oh Puhhlleeez


Hello again! I made this tag for a few more challenges while I actually had some sort of mojo going.  The tag background was made over a period of days/weeks probably - anytime I had leftover paint or ink or gesso, I used the tag to wipe it up or clean the brush.  For this project I used a digi stamp from Dilly Beans, colored with copics and spica pens, and added a sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie.  I used washi tape here and there and added some bling and a bow t the bottom and the top -although the top one did not cooperate for photographing.    I really like the image!

Thanks for stopping by!

You can't fake the fabulous layers that you have happening on your tag Carla = it is days and lots of bits and I love the total randomness that you achieved. It works as the perfect background to the super image.
Love the bright colour today.

I don't do messy inky stuff but can see that soaking the ink up with a tag is a great way of not wasting what you have left.

Great image and grungy colours. Well done on your win at Octopode :)

Many thanks for joining in with our Use A Digi challenge over at OSAAT & hope to see you back again soon.

What a fun and funky tag - I love your inky background and the cute and quirky image.

I like your idea for using leftover inks and paints - I do the same but I mop mine up with the pages of a little art journal. :)

Thanks for joining our challenge at OSAAT this week.
