City Tag

Hello Everybody!

I am so excited that school is almost out.  I am ready to sleep in and swim in the pool! :)

Over at Dragons Dream Tag It On, they are having a challenge based on using yellow and texture in your tag.  After seeing the DT's great artwork I wanted to play! :)

The city is a stencil from Crafters Workshop.  It has the shadow of the city which I used Ranger's Chrome Yellow and the outline I used Viva Ferro graphite-which is like modeling paste but looks like graphite.  It gives the city a raised edge (and texture).

I used Tim Holtz's sunshine stencil also with the chrome yellow.  I tried to use marigold orange for the roundness of the sun but it turn a bit more brown.  I guess mixing with the blue distress ink (tumbled glass and salty ocean).  So I didn't fight it anymore.  LOL  Don't look directly into the sun!  Before I did the sky I matched the stencil back over the sun and applied Wendi Vecchi's clear embossing paste to protect the yellow.  Once dry, I applied the blue distress inks.

This is a Tim Holtz saying.  I stamped it with Ranger's Manganese Blue.  The yellow is still chrome.  And I roughed up the edges and applied a little walnut ink distress.  I wanted to make sure I had texture! ;)

I am also submitting this to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Stencil It.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Until next time--keep on dreaming! :)

And your sun rays also give the appearance of texture. Your tag is a beautiful hot summer day over the city. Well done.
