Springtime Play with AO!

Hello to all of you and welcome to the "Designers Choice Blog Hop" with Artistic Outpost! All of the team will be sharing their awesomeness with you, so don't miss a thing! Tracy, Shari, Lisa, Kate, Gerrie

I decided to use one of the projects I created with the New Release, "Springtime" and here is how this tag came about!
The little cuties were stamped in Black Archival and watercolored using Brushed Corduroy, Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar, masked off and next the tag background was inked over in Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky, flicked with a little water. Masked off the stamp to stamp on a few Umbrella's using Watering Can Archival and drew on the handles with a marker. I also inked over these a little with the tag background colors to set them back a little. The Fence was also stamped in Watering Can.
To Finish I added a die cut "Play" and that reminds me that there is only a few days remaining to PLAY along in the "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge for May. The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival and inked, then die cut using ODBD Vintage Labels. Finished off all the edges with distressing and inked with Vintage Photo and Black Soot. The ribbon was stained using Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans stain.

Thank you so much for visiting today and have a lovely day and go PLAY!

What a beautiful scenic tag, Terry - I love the soft blues of the sky and clever pale stamping to put the ornate gates in the background. Charming!

Hi Terry, just catching up, love this tag with the new stamps and the gorgeous little scene you've created.
Fabulous alteration on the letters in the previous post. Love the colours and so many little embellishments, no wonder they took a while to do.

Brilliant stamps and your stamping/masking is wonderful, I though the umbrella belonged to the children! Love the very subtle umbrellas stamped in the background. Stunning work! Hugs, Anne xx
