I was thrilled to be asked tobe the Guest Designers on November 9th... Day 3 of Loll's event! I do love making tags during the holidays and Loll's event is a fun way to catch up on my tags that I use for my Norwegian Krumkake cookie trays.
This is also my 1st time to share my tags with you as a new Blogger :-) Enjoy and hope you get to play along too.
My Be Joyful Perfect Pear Tag......
I had so much fun making this tag using the Penny Black slapstick cling stamp: "Perfect Pears". I used the brushstroke stamping technique. Here is the video I watched that was very helpful..Brushstroke Stamping with MISTI by Penny Black.
I used Zig markers for my pear image and SU inks for my stamped background, sentiment and sponged edges. I masked my pear to stamp my background with my SU Sanded and French Script background stamps (ret). I love how it gave more depth to my pear.
I used my new STAMPlorations Mini stencil to trace and cut out my tag. STAMPlorations has a new CUTplorations "Luggage Tag" set with 3 different sized of tags. This is the largest size tag.. 3 3/8" x 5 1/2", which I traced from my Mini Stencil and fussy cut out. I have the tag dies on my wishlist..love the shape.
I finished my tag with splatters using diluted Soft Suede ink and a paint brush. Also added a few more splatters dipping the tip of my stylus in the ink. A trick I learned from Jennifer McGuire.
Loll's event runs from November 7-18, but you can add your tag to her link until November 25th. I hope you get to play along too. You will be so inspired by all of Loll's tags, her very talented Guest Designers and the growing Gallery :-)
