The Beauty of COLOR

Coloring book COLOR.
 
This is a Giant Manila Tag painted with black gesso and layered with all kinds of bright color to make for a contrasting kaleidoscope of color. 
 
 
All the pieces are cut from 200lb. watercolor paper and randomly colored with Gelatos. The color is INTENSE on the white paper!
 
 
The 3 Petal Drop pieces are the layered on top of the Garden Green piece.
 
Add some  Elements and  Laboratorie Tissue Tape and stamping with Jet Black Archival Ink.
 
 
I die cut a piece of plastic packaging using the Garden Greens die. Then I used it as a stencil with Honey Dew Fresco Paint as the first layer.

 
The pieces from the Lattice Frameworks Die  fill in spots around the tag. The swirling colors are really cool with a few dots of white pen.

The Classic Favorites #2 and Little Labels stamp collections are used here and are both in stock at Inspiration Emporium. Don't forget to use my code iecain81 for 10% off your order.
 
Have fun and just brighten up you day with COLOR!
