Hot Pink and Orange Tag

It’s been a hot minute since I coloured something, anything with my All-Purpose Inks and I have been craving the normalcy of just throwing ink on paper – not that life is otherwise normal, but some days you just have to add rainbow to your day. So today it’s hot pink and orange and man do I feel alive! So I guess it worked. What have you done with your API lately?

Step 1

I used a tag that had flowers glued onto it using Little Birdie Soft Gel medium. The flowers themselves have pulled apart so I only had single flat layers to work with and created this amazing background.

TIP: PS you know I love recycling, and sometimes it’s a project that I started and never finished.

Step 2

Once the gel medium was dry, I used my pipette and dropped the Cherry Pink and Tangerine API onto the tag and dried the inks in layers using my heat gun.

Step 3

I used a variety of colours to colour this piece of ribbon and added that just for fun. So just for today, it’s ok to breathe, to throw ink onto paper, to just be and have fun. And if it’s a bright Cherry Pink day then all the better. And who knows maybe tomorrow this tag will have become something – just like someday we just must become and be what that day calls us to be.

And on that note, now that the colour high has kicked in – I am off to add some more colour to my tag.
