Some Kind Of Genius {VLVS & TCW Tag}

Hi hi hihiiiiiiiiiiiii! Welcome to my blog today :)

I'm excited to be sharing some inspiration with you for Viva Las VegaStamps! and The Crafter's Workshop blog hop! Start at the VLVS! blog for all details.

I've put together a tag to share with you :)

The base is black cardstock layered with watercolor paper. I recently got some Golden Fluid acrylics and had to give them a go... I can't believe how fun they are!

I went back and forth between layering up the Golden Acrylics and Gesso through the TCW456 Sketch Grid stencil. It really created a beautiful background in bold bright colors with a nice contrast of stark white. 

Then I stamped the Cheshire Cat Sitting in the bottom corner of the tag and used more acrylic paint to shadow him. Thicker paint closer to his outline, thinner paint in a feather outward from the edge. The tag was adorned with a Tim Holtz bulb wrapped in wire and held down with Tiny Attacher staples.

I also used the Set of 2 Hands Pointing in the title. GENIUS is spelled out with Pink Paislee alphas, and SOME KIND OF comes from Tim Holtz's label stickers. The top of the tag is finished with a little May Arts ribbon. 

Don't forget to see what everyone else is up to today in our hop, and be sure to stay tuned all week to the Viva Las VegaStamps! blog. We'll be giving away prizes to a few of the commenters!
