Happy Day

Edited on 7/28/2018

I’m thrilled that this tag was chosen as Top 3 by Country View Challenge June - The Written Word, with the following compliment:
I love the graduating colour change in the background and the use of the layering. The stencilled leaves add subtle detail allowing the purple flower to stand out.

Yay! Like the tag’s title, it’s a happy day.

Hi Stamping Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The June Challenge Theme is LAYERS.

I must confess (again) that due to time constraints, I had no idea what and how to start. Luckily I was so inspired by Shari Carrol’s video tutorial that I kicked start quickly. The tag is full of layers. The following is how I made the tag.

Tag Details 
1. I mimicked what Shari did (please see the YouTube tutorial) and made four background papers in one time.

2. Picked one of the background cardstock and cut into the tag size. Overstamp text background (by Stampers Anonymous).

3. Applied Pearlescent Embossing Paste over leave stencil (by Simon Says Stamp) on tag and let dry.

4. Stamped flower and stem (by Altenew) and die cut. Heat emboss text in white on black scrap.

 5. Assembled the tag. The pearlescent shine is really stunning.


The tag’s vividly bright colors together with the elegant flower and leave made me happy. Hope it is eye-pleasing to you.  Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you a happy day.
