Life Is Good!

I hope you are having a wonderful week! Not only is it Wednesday and my day to share, but the very last day to join in the "July Monthly Referral Program." Come on and get inky with those AO stamps!
I first started by spraying this tag with some Dylusions sprays (blue, green, red and brown) and spray of water. I sponged off some of the color in various areas. Then it was time to pull out a few stencils to add a little extra interest and layers of color, using paint (leaves) and Distress Inks. After I was mostly happy, I gave a quick spray of brown over the fabric mesh.
The lovely girls from "Birds of a Feather" were stamped using black Archival ink and watercolored using some of the Dylusions sprays (Tattered Rose for skin tone) and of course fussy cut!! "Life Is Good" is from the "Typography" collection, which was cut, shaded (Mowed Lawn) and matted on black!

Thank you so much for visiting today!

Love your tag Terry, fabulous background layers and those lovely girls in their matching dresses look wonderful against it! They truly look as if they enjoy life! The black leaves frame it all just beautifully!

Love the layered stencilling in the background, and the fussy-cut girls look brilliant in their Dylusions dresses! Gorgeous tag, Terry.
