Hi everyone. Let's see, this is post number three for today (the first is HERE and the next one is HERE). What can I say! Wednesday is a great day to get some extra inspiration.
Talking of extra inspiration, that is the purpose of this post. Over at the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog the Design Team are providing a little mid-challenge motivation for the current theme 'Tag You're It' (kinda self-explanatory this one I'd say!!!) So here goes...
My inspiration for this card came from a pile of those kraft tags you get on clothing these days. Remove the horrible white sticky labels, give them a quick application of White Gee-Sso Good! (amazing coverage!) and your good to go with your choice of stamping. Oh yes, and they even came with the cotton twine attached. Couple this with a high horizon line (thank you SO much Claudine Hellmuth) and I couldn't fail.
I love this 'Skegness' A5 stamp set, good old fashioned British summer holidays encapsulated in some wonderful images. Stamped simply in black Archival Ink and coloured with a couple of Distress Inks they worked a treat with the whole weathered look. There's also a couple of shells included, leftover from the previous tag made for this challenge HERE.
The whole weather-beaten look wouldn't have been complete without some more faux wood effect background paper. I made it in the same way as my previous tutorial but this time using English Cottage Artist's Acrylic Paint in Pantry White, Hot Cocoa and Frosty Sky, stopping at the point where you add the layer of ink and water.
I'm entering this into the current That's Crafty Challenge Blog theme 'All At Sea' (they stock IndigoBlu don'tcha know!!)
And I'm also going to take the chance to join in with The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Challenge theme 'By The Seaside'.
Now it's your turn. Take a look at the projects from my team mates over at the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog then get started on your own using your IndigoBlu stamps and a tag (or two, or even three!) There's even prizes up for grabs so it's well worth getting inky.
Thank you for stopping by and sticking with it today. Your visits are always so welcome.
Take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
