I soaked my manila tags in a mixture of tea and coffee, and then did my stamping in Sepia Archival ink. I stamped a medium tag and a tiny matching one with each stamp, and then inked and spritzed and flicked them.
There wasn't a fixed plan at this point... maybe cards and matching gift tags?
The flowers come from various Katy Leitch sets...
I used the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings to create my greetings. I stamped them onto a page from the same book, so that they would match.
They're backed onto more kraft card to make them a little more sturdy,
and mounted on padded tape for a pop of dimension.
Rustic twine through the top of the tags adds extra texture and dimension too. I added lots of delicate splatter...
...and some stencilling through the Tim Holtz Lattice Layering Stencil.
And in the end, I decided the tiny tags would be quite cool inside the cards...
... so you get an immediate echo when you open the card to read the greeting.
So, some more simple cards for you - this is starting to become a habit! I hope you like them.
There's still plenty of time to come along and play in our Anything Goes August Challenge - no need to use Artistic Stamper stamps, but if you do you get two entries into the prize draw - hope to see you there! Thanks so much for stopping by.
