I have created a trio of tags to hopefully showcase some of the fab designs and ways they work so well together and as stand alone sheets .
So here is tag #1 :
For this tag I have done a bit some photos of how I built up the layers to show how well all those little...I wonder what you can do with those stamps?, work and how so well they work with the larger and more obviously useful images...I have to say some of the really small images are some of my most inked!
So here goes :
This is a large size #10 tag that has been inked with shabby shutters and then edged with peeled paint, I added some of Wendy's fab paste through my new Tim Holtz stencil... inking over areas when paste dry with peeled paint distress ink. Now to build up using... the little stamps... (sorry forgot to photo!) I first inked the small dots stamp from... well not on this image.. but trust me these dots are Artistic Outpost!... in picket fence and stamped randomly... not sure if you cans see? Then inked the numbers (love this from the same plate) and stamped... then filled in with the two small and gorgeous flowers.
Hopefully you can see these here on this larger photo, there is also some music script from another fab set ephemera backgrounds, which always adds that little extra layer to lots of my makes...
then for the next layer..
A size #8 tag , torn off across the bottom inked and also stamped with the small number stamp. Now finally the main image, love this image, stamped in black archival ink and edged with peeled paint distress ink.
The sentiment was from another firm favourite plate... and was stamped in jet black archival and clear embossed.
To complete I added some tattered floral die cuts, with inked edges... and some dyed seam binding.
Now tag #2... well I had to do a male one didn't I?
For this tag I used elements from the fab steampunk set.
I won't bore you with all the details... but hopefully this close up of the background shows how again these stamp sets can be used to create really cool backgrounds as well as for fab focal images.
After stencilling and inking, all the stamped elements are from this plate and ephemera background plate... and they create such a cool background for the great steampunk guy.
Now finally... tag #3... this uses one of my favourite sets... well there are lots but I love this one...
The paper boy set, again with great focal images... and great stamps to help build up cool backgrounds... and a fab sentiment too.
This again is inked, stencilled and then stamped using stamp from the set... some tissue tape and paint splatters complete the background.
and this great image which I just love.
Well thanks for taking the time to read my post and hope it has inspired you to get inky!... Don't forget all Artistic Outpost stamps will have a 15% discount applied through February 27th over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique... so its a great time to start or add to your collection!
keep those fingers inky!
