Approach with caution

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog where I am sharing a tag for the second week of the 'tag it' challenge for the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. I used another of the new stamps for March...
We would love to see you make something with a tag too, you could make one or add one to your project.

I cut this tag out of white card stock and then used a brayer and two shades of blue acrylic paint to colour the tag. I then added some stamping. The circles were stamped with black Archival ink and the baroque swirls were heat embossed with light blue WOW embossing powder. 
The little chap is called "Cranium" and it a new stamp for March by Daniel Torrente. 
I coloured him with Copics, cut him out and adhered him to the tag. 
I then stamped the sentiment, cut it into pieces and adhered it too. 

I used the following stamps:

This was a simple project, I cut this tag out of white card stock and stamped the plane and the sentiment on it with Archival ink and then coloured everything with a variety of materials like pencils, watercolours and even some alcoholmarkers.. I added some faux stitch lines and a piece of ribbon and that was that.

Man in the moon

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for Um Wow Studio where today I have a tag to share with you :

I have used 7Dots paper from the Writer's block series for this. I glued some pieced to a #10 tag and scraped gesso and Art Anthology Sorbet paints over it. I also added some shading with a distress Crayon. 

Here's how I treated the chipboards.

I used the man in the moon for this..

I heat embossed the solid piece with a light yellow embossing powder. I added two layers. 

In the end I thought it was too yellow and I added some shading on top with a Big Brush Marker. 

For the outline I also heat embossed this but used an ochre yellow and then also decided it was not quite right so I added some gold over the top. 

Here you can see them together... 

I had these stars left over from another project. They were gessoed and heat embossed with a holographic embossing powder. They have a lovely glittery finish. I added some brown Big Brush Marker here and there to vary the colour a little. 

And here you can see it all put together... I added some bandage which I stapled on and added some embroidery stitches. I used the same fabric at the top as a ribbon. The sentiment is from an old sticker set from 7Dots Studio called destination unknown. 

I have used these Chipboards:

Hello everyone,

There is a new challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge Blog. It is 'Ribbon or lace' and I really struggled with this one ... in the end I just added a piece of lacy ribbon on the side of my art journal page...

This paper is a mop up page from my gelli plate. Sometimes these turn out better than the actual prints... On the print you see two new stamps ! The white script and the girl... 
I stamped the background a little first, the script was white embossed and then stamped Elaina on white card stock and coloured her with Copic Markers. I cut her out and glued her on the page.
It was then that my struggle started .. I had out my stash of ribbons and lace and couldn't decide what to do or where to put it.. lol 
In the end I settled for this piece which was green to start, I painted it with gesso before stapling it to my page. 
The sentiment is a really old one but I though it fitted her face perfectly ! 

I used the following stamps: 

I hope you'll play along with us this week! Just remember to real the rules before submitting !
