Lovely Day!!

 Michele here today with some challenge inspiration for November.

 So this is the awesome inspiration board for this month!  I was on a roll and created a tag with a short tutorial.

Here is the tag:

And for a how to on the background and of course I did some masking!!

I started by stamping on my tag in archival ink and then masking the images.  I used 2 new stamps, Circle Pattern Circle and Striped Pattern Circle.

On my gelli plate I put down some of the Dina Wakely acrylic in Lemon.

I rolled the paint out with a brayer and then put down a stencil for some pattern.

I lifted up the stencil and put the tag down in the paint.

Once the paint was dry you can see the harlequin pattern around the masked images.

I created another layer by inking through the the mask with Distress Ink in mustard seed.
Viola!  Background ready for doodling!  Now peel off the masks to get started...

 I doodled some hearts and added more patterned circles.

Oh What a Day was the perfect sentiment for this bright tag!

I hope you are inspired to link up to our challenge!!  You have until the end of the month.

Until next time...get inky!!
