Drop Dead Diva- Lindy's Stamp Gang

Today's challenge is from Lindy's Stamp Gang and it is super bright so that's out of my box.  In fact i had to borrow bright colors from my friend.

 I started with a blank tag added washi tape and texture with modeling paste.
 Next i added fun chunky metal pieces and texture chipboard
 Painted the whole tag with white gesso, double coated to make sure everything is covered and not streaky.
added color with sprays and magicals.  I used
magical time travel teal
magical rusty lantern time
starburst yellow rose of texas
flat fabio urban amethyst
flat fabio poppin pink

i added the blue along the bottom and the pink and purple at the top.  I used water and a paint brush to blend the colors.  I wanted to leave some white so i didn't add color to the middle.
 I colored some the metal embellishments seperately.  I really liked how the color settled in the edges around embellishments and is darker.  I left the number 8 more white with right a hint of color, makes it pop.
 For the light bulb i used the rusty lime magical and painted it on with a brush with just a little water


















I kept the little touches to a minimal so i wouldn't cover up the background and also left them plain since the background is bright.  Love that the fairy wings are translucent for the whole there but not there look.  Final touches was added doddling.

until next time Drop Dead Divas!
