IndigoBlu Blog Challenge Reminder - All Things Bright & Beautiful

Hello there, how are you today?
So we are now moving into Autumn and I have to say this is my most favorite time of the year. I love the colours nature brings us.
Today I have a Tag Card to share with you as a reminder for this months IndigoBlu Blog Challenge, All Things Bright and Beautiful.

For this reminder I have gone under the sea where there is a whole new world of colour and beauty.

To start off, I used a Tim Holtz Tag Die to cut out the tag then stamped out several fish from the stamp set 'Under the Sea', reverse stamping one of the fish images. I then went over the tag with a couple of shades of Distress inks.
The Sea Horses and the Sea Grasses were stamped using using a few different shades of Stazon inks
I then started painting in the fish using the English Cottage Paints as well as a few of the Metallic Paints
Three different colours of Seam Binding Ribbons were added to a small Bull Clip. To get the scrunched look to the ribbons I separated the fibers at the ends of the ribbon and pulled a couple of strands and pushed the ribbon up.
A sentiment from the stamp set was inked up in Black Stazon onto a piece of Acetate and placed onto the tag. Glitter glue was then added around the edge of the tag to finish it off.
And here is the finished tag
I hope this has inspired you to get your IndigoBlu stamps out and have a go yourself.
