Spring's Greatest Joy!

I hope you are getting ready to have a wonderful weekend! Today I am sharing another tag using those adorable children from Springtime. Before I start, a little reminder about the monthly "Show Us Your AO Art" challenge and a chance to win a store gift certificate. It is again a theme of Anything Goes, but of course you must use AO stamps!
These adorable kids were all stamped in Black Archival, watercolored using Tattered Rose, Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo and Black Walnut and then fussy cut. The doggy and little child were tucked in to fit right into the group along the tags bottom edge.
The sentiment was stamped and cut apart to fit the blue rays of the stenciled background which was created by using the leftover colors on the craft mat from watercoloring the kids. Next the Rays stencil was inked over with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean and then the entire background was spritzed with water and a tie dyed using the blues.
Thank you for stopping by today!

Wow Terry, this is a stunner! I love how you did the rays with the words in, it looks amazing and you did some great colouring on the kids too. I love the little addition of the boy and dog too, they fit right in! Beautiful work. xx

I really like the radiating arc effect of the final one in this post. Also the water splashes. Nice job!
