In Springtime Play!

Hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the Summer! When I worked on this tag, all I could think is how we surely could use some rain in California!! Maybe these lovely Springtime children from Artistic Outpost will do the rain dance for us!! If you have AO stamps, please join in the monthly challenge "Show Us Your AO Art" and you could will a store gift certificate!
The images and sentiment (masked the lines) were stamped in Black Archival, fussy cut and shaded in Black Soot. I also outlined the the separated lines to the sentiment.
Color Burst (thanks Gerrie) which I ordered from the Funky Junkie Boutique and just love the magic, was used to color the tag. This was my first experiment with the product and what I did was to sprinkle a little on my craft mat and you don't need much! Then I misted my tag with water and placed the tag on top of the CB and patted it down into the product. I also gave it another direct mist and when dried did a little more flicking of water drops! Using a brick stencil from TCW, I layered some bricks with modeling paste and a washing of white acrylic paint and a wash of Weathered Wood in the grout lines. Added a few stars and a tie and off we go to play!

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for taking the time to visit and comment!

If I could do anything but hobble, I would do a rain dance for you so that you could take some of the wet stuff from us - we have had more than our fair share!!

Love your beautiful background, the colour bursts look amazing and I love your wonderful stamping too. Hugs, Anne xx

If these kids won't do a rain dance for you, I'll do a rain dance for you, Terry :) :) I did hear there was a little rain this past week in Cali---every little drop helps :)
Your Color Bursts background is gorgeous and these kids look right at home on the brick stenciling--looks like they're waiting for the rain, too!! :) Happy Weekend!! XOXO-Shari

I love your AO choices of stamps and sentimrnts on this! So cute!!! I wish I could make it rain for you!
