Happy Thoughts........

Another fun couple of days creating a mixed media tag....
The inspiration for the colours is from The Rubber Dance Colour Challenge
 The background has been stenciled, stamped and splattered.
The main flowers have been stamped and smooshed with stains.
Instead of spraying with my trusty sprays, I poured some of the stains out,
 onto my craft mat, smooshed and played.
The flowers have been fussy cut.
The circles behind the flowers have been stamped and then die cut.
I finished off with hi-lighting with a white pen 
and stamping and embossing the sentiment.
I had so much fun creating this tag and lets just say it wasn't my first attempt!
The black splats did migrate, so that's something else I have learnt.
Learning all the time and loving it!

The stencil in the background and the sentiment stamp is from Stamplorations.
I have used The Textured Flowers and 
Round in Circles Stamp sets from Rubber Dance.

Thank you so much for finding time to stop by...
