I just have one more tag to share with you this evening! This tag is a welcome to the Fabulous Dyan Reaveley who just called and said she was stuck in the airport in the US for a four hour layover. I asked her what she was going to do to fill her time for the four hours....She laughed at me and said doodle in my journal of course! LOL! duhhh! Where was my brain! At least she is safely in the US! Welcome Dyan back to the United States of America! Yahoooo!
Before I show you the tag I have a tale...Yep, go figure...Jim and tales go hand in hand! I learned if from my sister! :) So blame her.....
I just got off the phone with my mom. She asked me, "why do people do tags Jim?" My reply to her and you all who have never done one, It's a fast and easy piece of art. What I didn't tell her was that the tag I am about to show you took several hours to complete, but still, it's not a three day project. So, that's my reasoning....Yours may be different. It's just nice to feel like you have completed a project and tags do that for me.
So, without further story telling, I will show you my last tag. A Dylusions tag....I love it and hope you do too...
Supplies Used can be found at Inspiration Emporium in the US and Art From The Heart in the UK.
Dylusions Stamps - Dependable Dotty - Body and Face
Dylusions Stamps - Traveling Travis - Glasses
Dylusions Stamps - Around the Edge - Background
Dylusions Ink Sprays - Pure Sunshine -Background Spray Ink
Dylusions Ink Sprays - Cut Grass - Background Spray ink
Dylusions Ink Sprays - Fresh Lime - Background Spray Ink
Dylusions Ink Sprays - Bubblegum Pink - Circle Fills for Background
I sprayed puddles of Cut Grass, Fresh Lime and Pure Sunshine on the tag and spritzed water on top to help blend the colors together. I allowed to dry.
I then stamped the circles onto the tag with the Around The Edge Stamp.
I then bleached out the circles with water and allowed to dry.
Next, I inked in the Bubblegum Pink into the circles.
I stamped the flowers, body, glasses, face and jeans onto Ranger's Inkssentials Manilla Cardstock; colored them and cut out.
I took my sylus and a foam mat and rounded the pieces to make them dimensional. Next, I glued them to the tag, the flowers to each other and then glued them to the tag as well.
I sprayed some cardstock with the Squeezed Orange Ink Spray and cut small 1/8-inch strips from it. I then wrapped them around a bamboo skewer and glued them on as the hair.
Applied some ribbon to the top of the tag and that's it!
