As you know, today we are off to Vienna. I am scheduling this post as I have been told, in no uncertain terms, that I must not be messing about on my blog when we need to make a prompt and early start. As if?! My project to share with you today is a tag that I have made for this week’s Sunday Stampers challenge where the theme is numbers.
This uses a beautiful mistletoe stamp by Lavinia. I love how sharp it is but in particular, I love it that the designer has made it so the leaves are solid and the berries are an outline.
First off, I coloured the tag with distress inks – Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn and a touch of Vintage Photo. Next, I stamped some script in Vintage Photo. The mistletoe was stamped over the top and then the berries coloured in with a white gel pen.
Next I used the tiny hanging heart stamp, from Stampotique, and used black Memento ink so I could colour the hearts in red with Promarkers.
Then came the tricky part. Which number to use?! I mean, there are so many and I’m not very good at making choices. In the end, I found an Ideology sticker and used that.
After I had added the bow and baker’s twine I went over the hearts with some Crackle Accents.
Thanks for buzzing by.
