Sunny Days

Sunny Days it is... The temperature with the heat index will be close to 100 degrees and very muggy.  I always love when the first of the month rolls around because it means Tim will serve up a dose of inspiration to play along with in his 12 tags series. Tim's August 2016 tag
 This month he mixed up a few techniques that had me trying something new but also having to be a bit more creative as I didn't have the die he used on his tag.

I decided to use the texture fades dies instead on my tag.  I brayered on the color on the background and added the overlay of brown ink and water spots.   I then cut out on either end a bit of the harlequin pattern.
At first I didn't put anything in the openings and finished my tag. After I took the photos I thought it would be fun to pop some pink and dark brown in and added them. I think it made a big difference in the end result.

I also started a second tag in pink but ran out of time to play. This one will go in the pile to re-cycle later into a project.
I loved how the pink background turned out and wanted to share it as well.

Well that is all for me today!

Have a great one and keep cool!



  1. The pops of color under the harlequin are "spot" on! You've made a really cute tag for this month and I'm smitten with that little bumble bee. May I ask what stamp set did it come from? Perhaps it's a charm instead?

  2. So pretty. What a nice tag.
