Colour Combo Blog Hop–August



Amy’s colour combo for August was this lovely mix from Design Seeds

I like orange, or clementine as it is here. I really do. I just don’t scrap with it very often. So this is a great challenge for me to do something different.


Colour Combo August

My eldest son will be 11 on thursday and so I thought this would give me chance to get his tag done for the scooter he wants.

I used Watercolour paper to get some texture and my TH tag die. I used TH distress inks, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Pumice Stone, with some golden mint shimmer mist, some resist embossing and overstamping.

I can’t imagine for one minute that he will notice it as he scoots off down the road but you never know.

So here is the full bloghop from the beginning.

If you came to me from bunnyfreak’s blog, you are in the right order, and next stop is Lesley, her photos of Spain from earlier in the week are super.

Thanks Amy for a great colour combo.


  1. Jen that's a fab tag - well done! You're right the colour scheme is great. I don't suppose Louis will notice but hey the thought was there. LOL

  5. Happy birthday to son - the tag will do the scooter proud. Lovely work :0)

  7. Such a pretty tag! and gorgeous colours. For a few seconds until I read further, I thought he wasn't getting a scooter and the tag was 'Dream' as in 'Dream on!'. !

  9. I love this tag! This is a great use of the color combination :)

  10. Oh my, this tag is amazing. Love all the distressed look of it!

  11. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a thoughtful comment. I'll make an effort to think about adding photography tips, though I consider myself an amateur as well.

  12. That tag is just wonderful! I love the colours and it works really well as a grungy masculine label.


Aren't you lovely, you have made me smile =)
