My first tag is a romantic tag. I love the colors and the feel. I used Distress stains in worn lipstick, tumbled glass, squeezed lemonade, dusty concord, and Distress inks in crushed olive, black soot and vintage photo. I used a recollections stamp set for the vintage lady and CTMH stamp sets for the floral petals, the banner and the doily. As well, I used a stencil for the script. The flowers are Prima flowers.
I think this has become another fave of mine. :) Do you ever have a hard time choosing a favorite when each time you make something you think to yourself... yeh, I like that one too! :)
Next up I made a Halloween tag. I used Distress inks in dusty concord, mowed lawn, festive berries, tumbled glass, vintage photo, rusty hinge and black soot. The stamps I used were Inkadinkado and recollections. I also used molding paste and a dots stencil. And I added glitter with several stickles.
This next one I made for my gf who was hosting the retreat. I was so glad when she came over and commented that she thought this was one of her faves, because that was what I had intended it to be for. :) Guess that means I know her tastes. :) LOL
So on this tag I used Distress inks antique linen, old paper, frayed burlap and vintage photo. I used a stencil for the dotted pattern. The leaves were a Sizzix die cut. The butterfly stamps were from a Recollections stamp set because I don't have the Tim holtz butterfly stamp yet. The dimensional butterflies were from a dollar store, and the metal embellishments were from Michaels.
This next tag is just fun for Fall. I was inspired by the fall air, the colors starting to change around here and just the cuteness of the stamp set. I think I might make a few more of this one as gifts.
I used Distress inks old paper, scattered straw and spiced marmalade. The stamp set is a CTMH set from the 2013 winter catalogue that I just ordered a little bit ago. The images are colored using Prisma watercolor pencils and the blending solution with the paper nib blenders. I love using this technique for a coloring effect. :) It's a little more rustic looking than if I were to color with copics. I really like this tag.
I made several more but will have to post them later, tomorrow that is. LOL It's been a super busy weekend with partaking in the retreat the past couple of days, company visiting and staying with me, making 5 dozen perogies for one of my gf's, and my grandsons 3rd B-day party. I still have all my stuff piled in my garage which I need to bring back into my craft room, but I think that will be a task for tomorrow as well. There's always tomorrow thank goodness! :) My house is nice and quiet right now and I think I'm going to settle in for the night and relax with some candles and maybe a movie. Popcorn is calling me. ;)
