CC2C week #5

Here is my tag made for the Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 Challenge using the technique on page 48 - shattered stains. Quite a fun technique, but you have to wait for things to dry - tough when you're impatient and want to play :-).  The technique is on my flowers cut from white chipboard, kind of a black-eyed susan shape - maybe I'm getting ready for next Saturday's Preakness - isn't the winning horse is draped in a blanket of black-eyed susans?  I placed them on a "mop-up tag" - one laying around to pick up left over inks, in this case they are Liquitex Acrylic inks in blues and greens.  I added a bit of embossed texture, drew in stems and leaves, and found words from a package of Idea-ology Chit Chat Stickers and combined them into a sentence that would fit.

Here's a close up to see all the fun crackles:

Hello Penny
The vibrancy of this Tag is just stunning! I love Turquoise Blue; it is dynamic and dramatic when combined with hot colours, such as you have done here.....Orange is the hottest of the colour palette, and look how wonderful they work together. Your form and composition is perfect, so the eyes love the look. The spritzing technique on your blossoms creates so much texture.
A most beautiful Tag.
