Springtime Tags

This week I have lots to share with you, including two new videos! To kick things off, I have a couple of tags created using Penny Black stamps from the new Take Flight catalog.  Here's the first tag...
100_4554

I began by stamping background stamp, 40-207 Trailing Beauty, with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto my tag.  I colored the flowers using Copic markers and then lightly distressed the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  The sentiment, 30-160 Friendship, was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, and then distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Finally, I added two butterflies punched (Fiskars punch) from black cardstock.

This next tag was created with the Penny Black collage stamp, 4309L Singer's Muse. I colored the background with Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, and Wild Honey) and the bird and the flower were colored with Copic markers, cut out and adhered to the tag using pop dots. The sentiment, 30-162 Elegance, was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.

Jill, what white product did you use for center of flowers. They are beautiful

Jill said...

Thanks for the comment, Marshy! I used a white gel pen to lightly color the center of the flowers on the 2nd tag. Hope this answers your question. Happy stamping!
