I can’t believe it has already been 20 weeks of the Utah Diva’s Color Challenge.  It seems like we just started a couple of weeks ago but it has actually been much longer than that. Click on this link to go to the  Utah Diva’s Color Challenge blog.   This is the inspiration that Gretchen gave us this week –

Another spring set of colors – and I’m ready for spring to be here.  Actually I can’t wait because of two things – the birds will be back building nests and raising babies in my yard and we are building a sunroom/all-season room where we used to have a screened porch/deck and it will be so nice to sit out there when it is finished.

So back to my project today – I made tags again – I needed some for my latest batch of customer orders so I decided to use the Color Challenge for my inspiration.  I decided to use the stamp set that we received at Leadership – Clearly for You.  This weeks colors are Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Kraft (or Crumb Cake).  Here is what I came up with:

One of the things that we learned at the Leadership conference was that you could use the aqua-painter to “paint” on the Shimmer Mist paint.  I loved how it look and the aqua-painter gives you control of where you are putting it.  So I did that here on my little butterfly – on the tips of his wings and on the body.  I tried to take a close up picture so you could see the shimmer – this was the Champagne Mist color.

The rest of the tag is punches – Always Artichoke 2-1/2″ circle, Regal Rose 2-3/8 Scallop Circle, Whisper White 1-3/4″ circle.  The berry image was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.

I hope you like these little tags.  Now it is your turn to play with these colors – then go to the UDI blog and add your creation to the linky section.
