Hi dear followers!
We have a brand new challenge over at STAMPlorations and we want you to create something using
Layers aren't my 'thang'. But this is why we call a challenge a challenge!
Instead of trying to layer lots of papers, I decided to layer inks and stamps to create a vintage looking Christmas Tag.
I used a Tim Holtz tag die and sponged Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed around the edges. Then I used another piece of the plasterboard tape as a little stencil. I stamped the Christmas Block with Gathered Twigs and added some die cut snowflakes popped up on foam squares.
I have to say that the colours in this photo aren't exactly flattering. The yellows are much deeper.
I have been totally inspired to make Tags thanks to Loll. The only thing I hate about them taking a photo. Blah!
For this challenge we are welcoming Lee-Anne as our Guest Designer - here is a little bit about her:
“I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Bryan, for 39 years. He is so supportive of my stamping and a major enabler (thank heavens!). We have one awesome son, Geoff, who’s a computer guru. I rely on him a lot for keeping my computer system in tip top shape! And, we have a beautiful Border Collie, named Kizzy, who is my constant companion. We make Regina, Saskatchewan our home. The stamping bug bit me about 30 years ago (yes I know...that’s a long time ago...gasp!). A family friend owned a commercial stamp business and started carrying some basic stamping supplies. He provided a demo on heat embossing and I was hooked! I continually experiment with different types of designs and products and love to design CAS designs. However, there are lots of other styles I dabble in. Thanks so much, Shery and the rest of the DT, for this awesome opportunity! I am so honored.”
The STAMPlorations team are very excited about the upcoming release where we will be showcasing all the new stamps via a blog hop. Pencil it in, ladies, you don't want to miss it!
I would like to enter my tag into
Time Out photo inspiration - I made this tag very last minute and this photo was very inspiring with the warm colours that I tried to duplicate on my tag.
