ORANGE COLOR OF SUMMER & A SWAP

Orange

Orange is the color this week for the color of summer challenge over at http://twinkletwinklelikeastar.blogspot.com/2011/07/summer-of-color-purple.html hosted by Kristin, go check it out! I joined this a little late, but have been catching up. I have a few more to post yet. Made a tag again, going to make a tag book when done, inked the edges, and stamped with the crackle stamp using my orange water color crayon. I didn't have orange ink so I put some water on a paint brush and wiped it on crayon and the brushed the stamp, takes a little time but works good. Just make sure it is not to wet. The butterfly was cut from a note pad, a punched flower with rhinestone. A lot of the time I might not have the color I need for a flower or some other punch out, so I go to a magazine and look for the color I need. I always find it.






The orange rick rack, some of the many I have collected at yard sale, came in handy for this tag. I added some vintage sheet music , orange flowers with rhinestones. Vintage button with rhinestone again. Some gold twisty ribbon on the bottom of tag. Some detail and done. This tag was made on a ATC size card then attached to the shipping tag. Because I forgot what I was doing lol.






Some time ago I joined a Yahoo group but could never get anyone to respond to my post. Then one day a few weeks ago a lady posted wanting to do one on one swaps. Soooo I contacted her and we had our first trade an ATC card. I sent her my Mz. Scarlett card and a note tag along with it. Then I find out she is from Florida ...great... I am looking for some like minded peeps in Florida! I will show what she sent me next post.

Weather in Greenville PA.... still warm but not in the 90's... maybe get something done this week. Hmmm will see.... Set up at the flea market did not go good at all... don't think I will go back this year. All for now thanks for looking and come back soon. Blessings Donna

  2. Gorgeous tag! A tag book is such a great idea for this challenge.

    Oh, if you want to trade ATC's there is a forum ATCsForAll where you can do that. I just joined a couple of weeks ago and already traded over 35 ATC's. :)
