Silvery Tag

Happy Saturday!  I hope all your holiday activities are going well and you are getting some time for yourself. :)  I was able to sit down and play a little yesterday.  (Yeah!)  I love color and the Words & Paintery color palettes have had me inspired to try so many different things.  This month's color palette is Gray, Blue and Silver. 

 I actually created a masterboard of these colors blended together and have been playing with different ideas using the pieces.  My first completed project was this tag:

 I started with Ranger Distress Stain Spray Tarnished Pewter, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - blue and a white mist.  I blended these together multiple times and this was one of my backgrounds.

I laid down some die cut snowflakes and sponged silver ink over the snowflakes. I then sponged on snowflakes using blue die ink over the stencil.

I then took a holly stencil and sponged over that the darker blue ink.  I outlined with black watercolor pencils and softened it with a water brush.  I stamped the deer using black ink and heat embossed him with black embossing powder to make him pop.

I finished with an old Hero Arts Definition stamp over the background.

Here are the inspiration colors form Words & Paintery:

Have a wonderful weekend!
