Stampotique Designers Challenge ~ #85 Happy!

It's time for a brand new challenge today over at the Stampotique Designers challenge blog and it's the turn of our very own talented and gorgeous Kaz over at Slightly Wonky Crafts to set this weeks theme..

We all have our problems in life, but life is short and we should all find
something to put a smile on our faces as often as we can. So whether you choose
'happy' as your theme, your word or you use a technique that makes you smile,
show me your little bit of HAPPY!

What a fabby challenge Kaz!

I really, really LOVE making tags and getting painty!! ..
what could be better than teaming them up with some gorgeousness from Stampotique Originals 
(.. it doesn't get much better and certainly makes me happy!) 

I used orange and yellow acrylic paint for the background and flicked the tag with diluted turquoise paint.. then stamped around the edges with French Text using black archival ink.

Daniel's large Tree Topper was stamped and embossed onto white cardstock, cut out and added to the tag along with some film strip and word tiles.

The circles were made using a bottle top lid and the turquoise spots were made using dye ink and the Honeycomb background stamp.

Thank you for calling today and leaving a comment if you get the chance, I hope you can play along with us!

 Happy creating, Gez oxox
