July Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop: Paint the Town!

Greetings! It's time for the July Hump Day Hop! This month, my challenge theme was "Paint the Town." So I wanted everyone to take out their paints and sprays and go nuts! I decided to make a few tags to be later used on other projects.

I used a whole bunch of stamp sets for these 3 tags. I used Cherry Bomb, Man's Ruin, Tiki Party, and Girl's Ruin. I started by spraying each tag with sprays from Dreamweaver Stencils and Tattered Angels. Then I stenciled or brushed on some acrylic paint, and ended with stamping the images. Here's a closeup of each tag.

I rarely use the devil head, and I thought this was a great opportunity to pull him out. Out of the 3, this is my favorite tag.

No stencils were used on this one....just a fan brush to apply the paint. This will be cool on a scrapbook page I think. Now, to have a tiki party...... ;)

This tag gave me some trouble. There's actually a car underneath that blue patch of paint. It didn't emboss properly, and it looked like Hell, so I opted to paint over it and have another go at it. Still not loving the end result here....I think it needs another layer or two, but at least I covered up my major mess up.

Wanna see more fun with paint? Then continue hopping! Below is the full hop list. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
