Get Creative With Ink Pad Smear Art 

How an ink pad inspired my tag for Tag it Tuesday.

final tag

This sweet little rainbow tag was inspired by a stamp pad I found on a recent trip to Diaso. After smearing it, I remembered those crazy videos of the rainbow sponge lady. Do you remember her?

Her name is Dee Gruenig and she was always so excited by smearing ink.

After cutting out the tag with the rainbow smear and finding the die-cut word dream, I thought it would look nice with some stars. I couldn’t find any in my stash so I quickly cut a few out of vinyl. That is the weird yellow shape on the left.

The tag is shown here at an angle so you can see the placement and dimension of the yellow bow. The ribbon is grosgrain from Gwen Studios.
