"finally spring" - 3rd Eye's VIVID Challenge

Over at 3rd Eye they have a really talented bunch of ladies doing awesome LOs, art journal pages and other stuff! And they have a challenge too!

I stumbled upon their great stamps by accident - and the challenge requires to use some of them alongside with vivid colours.

So here comes my take on a vivid colours tag:

As I own only a few 3rd Eye stamps I had to improvise a little as I mainly ordered stamps I wanted to use on grungy or Steampunk projects ;)
(only the bird images are stamps from Crafty Individuals and my beloved alphabet stamps are from Hero Arts).

The lovely tree branches are my favourite image from the 3rd Eye range (well, besides their awesome light bulbs)! The brick wall stamp is fab too and now to the tricky part: "Marcel".

"Marcel" is part of the tag too...but let me introduce you to Marcel first ;)

Voila! Marcel is the guy to the left (well, obviously). But where the hell does he appear on the tag I can hear you ask. To be honest: I needed some grass to grow in front of the brick wall...and Marcel's hair was perfect for the job (and I wanted to use as many of my (six) 3rd Eye stamps as possible)! See?

The background of the tag was made using Distress inks in various tones. Hope you like the result :)

I also enter Vintage Stamping Challenges "Spring Is In The Air" challenge  and The Artistic Stamper's "tag" challenge with this tag. 

Thanks for your visit!!!

  1. Ich kann mir ja ein Grinsen nicht verkneifen. Ideen muß man haben und sie dann so gut in Worte verpacken wie du, das ist die halbe Miete. Eine Farbexplosion kommt als I- Tüpfelchen noch oben drauf. Eine prachtvolle Stempelei. Das Rot haut mich schier aus den Latschen und der Mauerstempel kommt teuflisch gut, da wird niemand Zahnräder vermissen (:o)
