Two Posts, Two Tags

I forgot to post these on my last post, sorry for two posts in one day! I'll have a SB page later as well, lol!

I have been playing with different techniques and styles on tags. They are a perfect size to play with and to try out different things.

The first tag I have blended, Spiced Marmalade, Fired brick and Mustard Seed DI inks and then stamped the crackle background and the CI girl in stazon timber brown. I have used the word love, from another CI stamp kit and the clock from a B-Line clocks collage stamp set. I have added crackle accents to the clock and glossy accents to the word and 2 petaloo flowers. I love this little girl image. She is from Craft Den. I also have my eye there on a lovely stamp with 2 little boys dressed as cowboys. They look 50's/60's and the stamp is very cute.

The second tag I have blended with Peeled paint, broken china and mustard seed DIs. I have then stamped the B-Line clock collage stamp, again with stazon timber brown and highlighted the big clock in glossy accents and added some metal buttons I got in a tinful I bought at a carboot recently. My sister, Liz, was with me, you could tell she was less than impressed at the purchase, well now she can see I have used some, lol!! The sentiment, I printed on the PC and coloured and stamped with the crackle background again. Around the edge I have used a pilot gold marker. I saw that Pat had used one like it recently and I have just bought a gold and a silver one.

Hope you like K x

  2. Wonderful tags Kathryn. They are very creative having used all those different techniques. The colours are gorgeous. Now all you need is a 7Gypsies display board like mine.
