I have managed to make the most of this morning and had a play with some inks (for a change) and made my first Paper Artsy Tag for the Hels Angels swap I am hosting this month.
I started by cutting some cream cardstock to 3" x 6" and making a tag shape. I used Antique Linen and Fired Brick Distress Ink to colour the background of the tag (I have made two and stuck them together because I have made double sided ones before and mucked up the other side if you know what I mean!! ) I used two of the new stamps from Paper Artsy Squiggley Ink range. I took the word stamp, inked with Goss Boss clear ink and embossed clear too. I then used Cut & Dry foam to colour over the clear image and repeated this three times. I did the same with the love heart too. I spritzed Gold Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist onto my hand and then flicked it onto the background of the tags, this gave me a lovely spotty gold effect.
On side 1 I stamped the words and the heart in Fired Brick and then embossed using Walnut Stain and Fired Brick Distress Powders. I then added a couple of doodles using a Chocolate gel pen (which actually smells of chocolate...yummy)
I repeated the process for the other side and cut up the words and put them on 3D foam onto the tag.
I added a couple of fibres and ribbons to the top of the tag and voila! A love you more Paper Artsy Tag!
I am also going to use this tag for the Arty Girlz weekly challenge which is Paper Artsy this week.
Thanks for looking and ...... Happy Valentines Day to you all.....hope that you have had lots of chocolate and lurve!!
