Opposite Seasons

The fifth, and final challenge, for the VSN Mini is to create two tags – one with a summer theme, and the other a winter.

Here are my tags:

For the summer tag, it was an easy choice – sunflowers. Those are my favorite flowers (well, at least in the top 5 – I love all flowers so it is hard to pick a favorite). To ink the flowers, I started with Harvest Gold then inked the middle with Summer Sunrise and then went back over with the gold. The leaves are stamped off first to keep the muted colors.

For the winter tag, since I was keeping the same base color, I thought a snowman would be a perfect image.

I didn’t “finish” the tags (i.e., add ribbon or other embellishment) because I’m sure these will eventually make it onto a card (I don’t need tags). So I’ll wait until I know what I’m doing with them before they are done done.

Thanks for taking a peek!
