Simon Monday Challenge - W is for white

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is odd to a good start. I'm joining in with the W is for White challenge at the Simon Monday Challenge and as my white I've used a white pen to highlight and white acrylic ink for spatter over the tag.
The background is a mixture of teal and lemon zest Dylusions inks which I've blended together with water. The stamping is with gorgeous Crafty Individuals stamps 'build a meadow', 'summer meadow', 'butterfly mornings and wild flower afternoons' and 'four postmarks' stamps.
When the stamping was complete I doodled a border with black and white ink, highlighted the stamping, colouring in some of the flower and butterfly element stamps and finally added some white ink spatter.

I'll be back on Sunday with my final Ribbon Girl guest designer post, see you then!

I love white - even though an art teacher would tell you it isn't a colour. LOL. I love the tones of this tag too with wonderful blending to create them. Gorgeous.
