No Refunds / No Exchanges

Over at Flying Unicorn there is a mid month challenge entitled Go Bold, Go Bright and you needed to create a tag or card in bold bright colors.
I finished up a tutorial for an upcoming post on The Art Studio's blog and still had some tags and supplies on my desk (along with some rare free time) that I decided to play.

I do have to say when I first started layering I wasn't so sure I liked the direction it was going but the more I added the happier it made me.

I used 6 different stencils and one stamp to get my layers.

For my colors I used a variety of inks, mists from Tattered Angels and Lindy's Stamp Gang, and Gelatos.

The heart I cut out from a piece of scrap paper from one of my many drawers. The colors fit in perfect and the scrap was just the size to cut the heart. I inked it in black ink and then outlined it with a white chalk pencil once I put it on the tag to make it pop just a bit. 
The wings are RubOns from 7Gypsies (I think).

  I stamped the words No Refunds, No Exchanges (stamp is from Hero Arts) randomly across the tag. I had in my mind the thought of  "I'm giving you my heart, you can't get a refund or exchange it for another". It's corny I know, but that's how my mind works as I create, what can I say.

  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
