Emma bought me this fabulous Acey Duecy wooden stamp designed by Lynne Perrella for my birthday, but due to stock issues and re-ordering it only came this week!!
Now over on Darcy's blog she is having a tag challenge. I'm not sure if I'll qualify as you are meant to use Xmas stamps to make gift tags. These will end up as gift tags due to their size but maybe not for Xmas, but then again, you never know!!! Either way, I had to have a play.
So the idea is to use the same stamp in as many ways as you can. So the top tag is one layered, ie all the stamping is done directly onto the tag using black archival and red stazon inks.
For this second tag, the main image was stamped, then masked off whilst the background script was stamped. The butterfly face was stamped onto separate card, stamped in red stazon, cut out and stuck over the original image.
For the third tag I stamped the main image and again on another piece of card. Hi-lighted some of the areas in red posca pen.
I cut out a portion of the second image and mounted it on 3d foam to give it a decoupaged look. Here you can just about see the 2mm foam that I used.
And for my final tag I stamped the face several times in red stazon and black archival, cut them all out and alternated them on left hand side of a tag that I'd stamped with an oriental background. So for this tag I used part of the stamp.
And here are all the 4 tags beside each other.
