Yellow Yellow Yellow


I just finished a tag for the Not So Mellow Yellow Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

All of the designers have done a great job with their projects-it's really hard not to be inspired!

So I made this tag.  I glued a piece of Tim Holtz tissue paper down on the tag.  Once dried I painted mustard seed (yellow) distress paint over the top.  I spray it with white Dylusions to lighten it.  I used Tim's ruler stencil and once the light modeling paste dried I put weathered wood distress ink over it.

It's so funny how the tag can kind of take on a life of it's own.  So from there an architectural feel started happening.  I painted a spot of gesso so I could use a Wendi Vecchi stamp and it wouldn't keep as much with the background.  But I didn't get the stamp inked well.  :(  But it's ok.  Then I stamped the words above the house as to me those are all things that describe a home.

I glued a yellow dragonfly to the the bottom corner.  

Here's a closeup.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...Home is where the heart is.  :)
