So, my tag is made from a selection of the brand new stamps that will be launching on Saturday August 13th... Jennie has been previewing some on her blog this week... and... double trouble this month because Jennie also has a set of stamps and a tag to giveaway too. CLICK HERE to be whizzed off to see the deets.
I used Distress Stains to make an inky base for the tag - Old Paper, Frayed Burlap and Aged Mahogany with a smidge of Brushed Corduroy. The background was stamped with the Large Dotty Open and Frayed Burlap DI and then overstamped using the Mini Polka Dots background and Plum Archival Ink. I used the new Cup Ring stamps to make the lollipop flower - stamping onto Kraft Resist, colouring with Aged Mahogany and Old Paper and then scrunching and layering together. The leaves are cut from the Movers & Shapers Mini Branch die set and coloured with Crushed Olive DS. The butterflies are Movers & Shapers, coloured with Distress Ink and then overstamped with the Large Dotty Open... I wanted this to be a bit shabby so I stuck random bits of post it notes over the pattern, inked the stamp, removed the paper and then stamped... instant grungy look! I added a few bits of Idea-ology to finish and some flower Trim which was coloured with Aged Mahogany DS.
Here's a piccie of the Large Dotty Stamp that is up for grabs along with this tag. Do hop on over to Jennie's blog to more of the new releases! Thanks for looking... TTFN
