Simplicity Sunday - A tag by Donna Gray

Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today with a simple tag for Simplicity Sunday!

I used one of these small greyboard tags covering it with a coat of black Gesso to create a chalky background. I seem to be in love with creating with black at the moment!

I wanted to make a rainbow as I had an idea to pair it up with the clouds from Whimsical Summer (which I use soooo much). Now when I was at school....yes I still can remember that far back.....we were always told there were seven colours in the rainbow but now it seems to be six?! Apparently some people do not count Indigo as a colour on the spectrum, anyway so I decided to create a rainbow with the six colours then ;)

The rainbow was created by using Zig Clean Colour pens on a piece of water colour paper in an arch shape and then cut out and adhered to the background.

Next step was to take the bird and clouds from Whimsical Summer, colouring them with the Zig pens and then fussy cutting out and adhering theme to the background with foam pads to make then pop.

The finishing touches were to doodle with black and white Posca Pens and then adding a Tim Holtz sentiment.

Ah how sweet the little birdie is dreaming under the rainbow, wonder what he is wishing for?

Stamps Used:

Whimsical Summer

Hope you like it

  1. Aww, this is so adorable! Love how you made the bird sit between the rainly clouds like that, sheltered by a rainbow unbrella perhaps? Gorgeous make, Donna. Thank you so much for sharing! ♥ ♥ ♥

    PS: The indigo section of a rainbow can be hard to detect by the human eye, but it's still there :-)

  2. The black really highlights those quirky stamps love this bird. x Amanda

  3. Wonderful! Love the contrast between the black and the colours 😍

  4. This is gorgeous Donna, the bird looks so happy under his rainbow xx
