Just BE

Today I have April's tag for you. Of course that can only mean it's time for Shazza's PhiloSOULphy challenge over at SoulScrappers.   As soon as I saw the quote I knew I wanted to use my set from Flourish's stamps it's a cute set I think it's called Honey Bee and I thought I wrote it on the back of the tag but nope it's not there. Oh well? I thought this would be simple because I already had a theme, far far from the truth. I'm not use to working with such delicate lined stamps. The coloring went great I used my waterbrush and TH inks. I also used his inks for the background, turned out to dull so I added some dimension  with a stencil and molding paste to white so I put some of my new Infusions on there OOPS now it looks like a spotted mess and they are dried in to the paste UGH. water it down and smear there went the background I stamped in Smoke TH ink of course. Then I tried to stamp off my black archival before applying to tag nope not able to see it so I went full black. Then I thought it would be to bold. I think the background finally carries the image. Now how do I finish it off. My art critic(hubby) said bring out the yellow more and he was so right. I don't thing you can see the blue and white gingham behind the bow. I also brought some of the yellow down to the bottom corner.
That is it for me today, we have rain on the way and my head is getting to the I can't take it pounding stage.
Til next time
Hugs

Beautiful tag, so much work went into that tag, to have patient to do all the detail. Wow, more and more I just love your work.

Isn't it funny how we both are allergic to bees and yet we tend to include them? This is awesome!
