5 for 5 Blog Event: Valentine's | Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of our 5 for 5 Blog Event. Each day for 5 days our 5 Designers will post one Valentine's Inspired Project based on a theme. The theme for today is "Pink and Orange". I decided drag out my awesome Stampotique stamps and create a colorful mixed media tag. The tag base started as a mop up page from some older art journal pages that I was working on. Any stencils with paint or spray inks on them get wiped off onto another clean page which then starts another background! I added some
 Dina Wakley paint, gesso and black paint to complete the background. I then stamped my Stampotique image onto Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored this little lovely with Stampin' Up!'s Blendabilities! Blendabilities are alcohol based markers that allow for blending several shades of the same color.


Here's a close-up of the coloring ...


When using a "figure" image, it helps to have the image standing on something so it doesn't look like it's floating. I added some lines with black paint and some glitter hearts ...


I forgot how much I love these stamps!!! Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out the blogs below for more Valentines inspiration!! See you tomorrow for more 5 for 5!!
