CAS Tag


Having had great fun with the smudging I decided to try another one but this time I used a darker grey by mixing elephant with little black dress.


Again I used the same two smudgy pencils for the hi-lighting.


I decided to use a more open stamp and on a tag this time around. Again starting with the white down the middle as per Jo's technique here.


Then I added the black and scribbled some white over the top for a grey colour.


Gave it all a smudge.


Added some more white dashes around the outside.


And finally added a piece of linen ribbon after colouring it with iced spruce and black soot distress stains.

Simon Says Monday have a theme of got ink and are simply asking to see any type of ink on your project, I used black archival.

Country View Crafts have a theme of letters and there are lots of random letters on this tag.

Wow! I am blown away by this tag! I had no idea that smudging could look so elegant! I love the image you chose to use and the color palette is subtle and yet stunning. You've given some great inspiration to me with this clever creation. You definitely have a fantastic artistic eye! I'm so glad you shared this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog.
