I Can Sing A Rainbow

Hello again,

I have joined in a new challenge from Rainbow Lady. She has come up with a fab idea that we make something just using shades one colour and those colours must be in the Rainbow.....so this week I have started at the very beginning and have made something red.

I decided to make a tag as I will follow this challenge thru to the end of the rainbow and (who knows I may find that pot of gold) at the end of it I will have a little tag book to keep :O))




I started by using Fired Brick Distress Ink and covering the whole tag with this. I then smudged Aged Mahogany over the edges and then flicked water onto it. Drying with a heat gun made the water flicks evaporate quicker than drying naturally, so I kept some of the red colour showing. I then used a Dabber in Red Pepper to drag a few accents of red paint over the surface of the tag.

I then began stamping, using Lost Coast Designs and Paper Artsy stamps.

I used Distress Embossing powder in Fired Brick to accent the cats hat and then the scruffy edging of the tag.

Thanks for a fabby idea Cynthia, I love this challenge!

What a great idea, to make a tag book. And that cat, I like it very much, must get that stamp also! Sonja.
