I'm really enjoying the Feeling Sentimental stamp set from Stampin' Up's exclusive range of
Sale-A-Bration exclusive free products.
I took the next project a little further and concentrated on creating a variety of textures that grew as the work evolved. I did have a plan in my head, but as usual, that plan took different directions as the Tag evolved. I love working that way. It is very satisfying not to be restricted by parameters, and I think allows the creative process to really flow.
Here are a couple of detail shots of parts of the tag.
My colour range is yellow, craft, artichoke and early espresso on vanilla card.
For the image I used the Rock 'n Roll technique: firstly inking the image with Artichoke then rolling the edges in Early Espresso. This makes such an interesting two colour image and I love the little hint of serendipity where one doesn't quite know how things will work out. I used images from French Foliage to compliment the main image that is another stamp from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set.
A variety of textures were created using the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up Embossing Folders: Chevron and Stripes. These areas were over stamped with images from French Foliage and sponged with Artichoke and Espresso inks.
I used Craft, Yellow and Artichoke Seam Binding with some Linen Thread to create the tie at the top, and a little scrap of Crochet Trim as a detail and added texture on the tag.
This was really fun to make and I'd love to try it in a variety of colour ranges.
I do hope you enjoy these projects and that you will give them a try.
I think this project fits the following challenges:
Addicted To Stamps challenge - must include stamping
Stampavie and More - Tag It challenge 188
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Until Next Time
