Bright & Beautiful

Hello again,

Here is another tag I have made using Adirondack pigment inks, Grungepaper and my new favest stamps from the Studio 490 range by Wendy Vecchi. Yes, I know, I am always having new favourites but these fab stamps are just so easy to use and perfect for mixing and matching together.

I coloured the tag base with Sunset Orange, Lemonade and Watermelon pigment inks, blending them using Cut n Dry Foam. I did a little bit of random stamping using Wild Plum ink, I inked up the gingham background stamp, laying it flat on the desk and then sort of rolled the tag over parts of the stamp so I picked up bits of the pattern.

I coloured up some Grungepaper and stamped the images and cut them out. I popped them onto the tag using silicone glue and my Tiny Attacher and added some beaded fringing to the bottom of the tag to finish...this doesn't show up too well in the pics tho!

For the flower embellishment, I stamped the image twice using two different colours, cut them out and layered them over each other and then just stamped the center of the flower and cut it out, then I popped this onto the gingham background stamp so it ties in with the rest of the design.

Thanks for looking

Hels x

I'm a huge fan of Studio 490 too and have just made a big canvas with them and Paper Artsy houses. Love what you did with the blue half flower stamp in the blue tag - will have to try that ....
