My Cards and Tags: Dylusions Ink Spray Tags

Spritz and Spray is this week's theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  I love rich bold colors, so I am a huge fan of Dylusions Ink Spray, which I used on the background of these tags:

I started with some tags I cut out of white Mixed Media Paper.  I smudged Distress Ink onto the tags, then I sprayed them with various colors of Dylusions ink spray.  I also dripped some water onto the Distress Ink sections, then soaked it back up with a paper towel after leaving it for a few minutes.  That's what created the white circle-splotches.

While my tags dried, I stamped some background images using Tim Holtz's Documented stamp set, and Simon Says Stamp's Tiny Alphabet background stamp.  I also used the Prima honeycomb stencil for the polka dot background.  I grabbed my circle punches and punched circles out of the stamped/stenciled sections, then outlined them with Sharpie pens.

I glued the circles onto my tags and added some yarn.  I finished them off by stamping some "power words" using Dina Wakley stamps and adding those on top.

I enjoyed whippin' out the sprays and seeing what emerged as the colors blended together.  I used these fabulous supplies from Simon Says Stamp to make my tags:
