"Oriental - China Blue"
This week’s Tag It On challenge was “Oriental - China Blue.” I used Asian theme stamps and an oriental painting. I used a “China Blue” value of RGB 0x79A9DB (121, 169, 219), which I found with a Google search. I used both GIMP and PhotoPlus to create this.
I apologize for the quality of the picture of the actual tag. This was my first time taking a picture of something I made. I included the original image as well, but the printed out blue looks much nicer. And I couldn’t find my box of ribbons, after scouring a very hot attic for it, so I had to use a ribbon I took off of something else.
Technical notes to myself: I originally liked how the “flower” came out for the top of the tag, but when I was done, it looked more like a “flower power” symbol, so I don’t like it anymore. (Sat May 23, 2009 05:20 EDT: I should’ve modified this when I posted it, to say that when I printed and cut out the tag, I liked the flower again. So I might use it again next time.)
