Yellow Mellow

Hi everyone,

A new Simon Says Stamp Challenge Monday is here for you. DT member Anna- Karin challenges you to create a Yellow inspired project. We can't wait to see what yellow inspired projects you will come up with!


This week I was inspired by the combination of yellow and black. I think this is a very beautiful combination with high contrast. The background of my manila #8 tag is made with the Chunky Chevron stencil and some Lemon Zest spray. I simply can't get enough of the new Distress Marker Spritzer and I used it with the Spiced Marmalade marker and Dot Fade stencil to create a little more interest to the background.



The letters are made with Embossing Paste that I colored with Black Soot Distress Paint and applied it with the Schoolhouse stencil. The edges of the tag are also done with the Black Soot Distress Paint. In order to enhance the contrast even more.



The City Skyline stamp from Tim Holtz is such a cool stamp and have it stamped on the bottom of my tag with Jet Black Archival Ink. As you know I have a sort of obsession with washi tape, and yes, this tag needed also some.

  20. You have such a great eye for bold elements and energetic colors! I really like how you created the cityscape and combined it with the sentiment to "breathe." It was a nice combination of ideas (busy life with serenity). Great work, yet again!
