Colour Class.

I have taken a number of classes with Big Picture Scrapbooking and as with Shimelle Laine, find the classes very innovative and fun. The great thing about them is you have ongoing access to the class information and videos so you can miss some of the weeks but still reap the benefits.

Anyway I thought I would share some of the work we have been doing. The pre-class homework was to make 6 tags depicting the primary colours on the colour wheel, here are mine. All the tags come from a well-known stationary shop and the stamps are from Unity. The inks are Distress Inks.

 For the orange tag, I inked the tag in Marmalade then stamped on a dandelion image in black. The butterfly is embossed using clear embossing powder on vintage music paper, coloured and cut out, then some bling added. The chipboard pieces are from a loose bunch I found floating around.

 For the red tag I inked the tag with Fired Brick and then stamped the heart image using the same ink and embossed with iredescent powder. I then spritzed with some spray glimmer mist. I added the strip of Washi tape and the bobble ribbon and the little sentiment. The butterfly sticker is from some packaging.

For the violet tag, I embossed a rose image and the word beauty then inked over this with a violet chalk ink, rubbing away the excess. I then added some bling, buttons and twine, and some lace.

 For the green tag, I again embossed directly onto the tag and inked over with green chalk inks. I then painted and distressed a Tim Holtz grungeboard flourish and used this as the background for my 2 flowers. The leaves were hand cut and inked.

 With the blue tag I again heat embossed using a stamped image in Faded jeans. I then distressed and wrapped some blue paper around the tag and added a left over rolled blue jeans flower from a previous project.

For the yellow tag, I again embossed directly onto the tag and sprayed glimmer mist on top. I again wrapped and distressed paper. Added a Tim Holtz key and bling in blue, added the chipboard star, button and lace.
