Hels and I have been at it again... we're on a roll! Today's post coincides with Hels' weekly Sunday Stamper challenge, so it's a two-fer. We were both completely inspired by Anna Dabrowska's (aka Finnabair) recent live-stream show for Prima, so we decided to do our own take on her fabulous tags.
Here's our recipe:
- Jumbo Tag with 2 1/4" cut off at bottom and 'dangling'
- Die Cuts or Punches
- Paint / Texture Paste optional
- Loads of embellishments
- Ink sprays of choice
- Paper flowers
- Stamps of choice
- Torn strips of canvas / book text
- Masking / washi tape
I started by gluing alternating strips of raw canvas, book text canvas, masking tape and washi tape printed with red text across the tag, from top to bottom. I added a strip of leafy vine (Martha Stewart border punch) painted with lettuce paint dabber.
Then it was time for loads of paper flowers, along with metal filigree leaves on both the top and bottom segments of the tag.
I tucked an ornate plate into the flower grouping and stamped the word DREAM (Paper Artsy) on canvas in the center.
Added some random embellishments to balance the tag, and then sprayed with a combination of several ink sprays (color wash, perfect pearl mist, and a couple of custom ink sprays with distress re-inkers and perfect pearls). I attached the two sections of the tag together with eyelets and some black hemp.
We're having a blast with these "recipe-style" challenges - hope you're having fun playing along. Be sure to pop over to Hels' blog to check out her gorgeous Sunday Stamper piece, or if you've already been there... thanks for popping over to see me!
Have a great week!
