Today I felt like being a little more adventurous and started to play with some of my new paper crafting toys! I thought today I would give a tag a try. I used three of my new stamp sets and some of my new papers. I never really have a set picture in my head when I begin, my designs just sort of evolve as I go.
I started with the flower stamp and stamped it on some Whip Cream Paper using Black Licorice ink. I decided to color one in lavender and one in pink with colored pencils. After coloring, I used Gamsol and blending stumps to blend the color.
Using the leaf stamp and Black Licorice ink, I stamped several of the leaves onto Lemon Grass paper. I fussy cut both the flowers and the leaves. The tag was die cut from Deep Lilac paper. I then cut a piece of Lavender Fusion which measured 2 1/2 x 4 1/2" and attached it to the center of the tag. I then glued the flowers and leaves onto the tag.
Using the bee stamp and Licorice ink, I stamped on bee onto both Lemon Drop and Whip Cream papers. I fussy cut the entire bee from the Lemon Drop paper and just the wings from the Whip Cream paper. I then glued the white wings onto the bee.
The sentiment was also stamped onto Whip Cream paper with Licorice ink. Then using my stitched rectangle dies I cut out the sentiment and glued it to the bottom corner of the tag. I painted the wings of the bee using a sparkle pen and the yellow portions of the stamens with a yellow glitter gel pen.
To finish off the tag, I added a Lt. Orchid satin ribbon to the tag and then glued a small bow of the same ribbon to the loop of the tag.
I think for my first tag, it turned out really pretty and I really had fun creating it. I hope you will give it a try!
