Paper Artsy Tag - Clowning Around

Hi again

I have made another Tag for the swap I host each month. The theme this month is "Paper Artsy".

I started off by picking out my most favourite PA stamps - the Pierot Plates.

I love these stamps because I can use lots of bright colours with them. I started by cutting some plain cream cardstock to 3" x 6" and made the tag shapes.

I used Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, blending them using Cut & Dry foam. I then used another bit of Cut & Dry and smudged on Adirondack Wild Plum ink. I then started stamping the images I needed, using a mask where necessary.

I used some domino sized Stampbord, colouring first with the co-ordinating inks and then once I had stamped the image, I used UTEE to coat them. Punching a hole using my lovely Crop-A-Dile, I added some ribbons to them. I almost forgot...I also made some shrink plastic charms using a heart and a hat as templates....they are hanging off the piece of stampbord on the front of the tag :O))

I am really happy with this tag, I love the colours I have used too!

Thanks for looking

What is cut and dry foam? I've never heard of that. What does it do? I see you said you used it to blend the colors. Are the inks from a pad or a dropper?
