Trio of Tags


It's the second technique from Linda Cain over at the PaperArtsy blog, to check it out, click here.

I've been experimenting again, this time I used from left to right, a kraft tag firstly painted with snowflake paint, a black tag and a kraft tag.  I just had to take a photo of them because look how well the black covered!!  I did have to improvise with the colours though as I don't have vintage lace or sky. I used mushroom on the middle tag and a mix of beach hut and nougat on the other two.


I also don't have any of the stamps used so again I improvised.  The main image is from the Wings #3 plate of the ink and the dog.  I die cut the Sizzix primitive hearts from the metal card and stamped the image in black Stazon.  The background script stamps are from Urban Snapshots, Young Love #4 plate.


Again the main image is Ink and the dog, Vintage Nudes #3 plate.  I also used the checkers from this plate and stamped the backgorund in blaze red stazon along with the script from the Backgrounds #2 plate.  The X is from the Word Play die, painted in nougat and stamped in red stazon with script from the LP 03 plate.


The background script is the same as the tag on the left.  The main image is from the At Home #4 plate, Ink and the dog collection.



Instead of mounting them all separately on black card and then sticking them together, I stuck them all to a large piece of black card, leaving a bigger gap on each side of the middle tag, cut them out and scored down each side of the middle tag.

I am also entering my tag trio into this weeks Stampotique challenge as their theme is 'Love'.

That is beautiful piece, mounting the tags on black really makes the colours pop.

My Photo
Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
