April Showers Tag ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

         April here in Reno, Nevada has already brought showers, including hail/snow, inspiring this tag featuring the Dotty Flowers Stamp from Red Rubber Designs. Nicer temperatures have finally arrived, but the white dots look like the hail we were getting. 

     I started with a white Dina Wakley tag, and colored it with Lindy's Gang Sprays (Black Orchid Silver and Long John's Silver Vintage) and Magical Shakers (Stormy Silver and Bavarian Blue). As it was drying, I painted the cardboard cloud with Dylusion's Paint (White Linen), and embossed it with Emerald Creek (Soft Fallen Snow) for a fluffy texture. Before adhering it, I embossed the edges of the tag with Emerald Creek (Mirror Platinum) EP.

     The wooden umbrella was given a coat of Prima Marketing Black Gesso, and embossed with Emerald Creek (Black Cherry and Mirror Platinum) Embossing Powders. Then I painted rays under it with Lindy's Gang Sprays (Rudolph's Nose Red, Marigold Yellow Orange, Freaky Frankenlime, Blue Hawaiian Blue, and Witch's Potion Purple) and Magical (Bling-y Blonde). The rain was done with a stencil embossed with Lindy's Gang (Clearly Clear) EP, also used on the word strips that I printed out.

     The Dotty Flowers also got a coat of (Clearly Clear) EP, after stamping them with Palette Inks onto white cardstock. Then I used silver gromlets for the centers. 

Thanks for dropping by!
