and welcome to another challenge over at
This week, we'd like to see you make a gift tag.
Also, have you seen that Creative Inspirations is having a DT- call???
Click HERE to check it out!!!
I've used the furrrrociously fancy
Louisa the Lioness digi stamp by Marina Neira,
you can find her HERE at The stamping Bazaar!!
She is coloured with distress inks and touches of pencil,
as shown in the previous post, lol.
I erased the green then went back in with pencils
and shadowed the eye area and highlighted above her nose
with a white gel pen and, well, phew!!!
Let me just say, Marina has been hard at work whipping up these adorably sweet characters, we lucky ladies on The Stamping Bazaar DT are definitely on cuteness overload (in the greatest of ways, let me assure you!!), Louisa hit me as sort of a sassy lass at first, but the more I spent time with her, the more I saw her elegant, artistic character, her lyrics bursting with raw femininity, like a young Tori Amos, lol, Roary Amos. Oh my gosh, does anyone read this.... I, uhhhhh, okay, on with the show...
The base of this tag is made out of Gina K Kraft CS, the DP is K & Company and the laces and fibres are from my stash, the flowers are from I Am Roses (thanks for the addiction, tracey!!) and the brads are Basic Grey. The punches used in my branchy area are Martha Stewart, they were spritzed with glimmer mist and then gold stickles was added.
In the back, there is K & Co checkers and the music script is by Magnolia, the gingham is just your basic, bar none ribbon and the lace is the same, I let the hem out of the lace and then secured it around the sentiment panel, the gems are by Hero Arts. Everything was distressed in Brushed Corduroy and roughed up with scissors, the shape on the bottom of the tag was achieved with a ek success punch.
This was a lot of fun to make,
even with the unsolicited help of my son,
you can see the action in my previous post, lol!!
He must have been real proud of himself,
picking out just the right green to add in the finishing touches, lol!!
Want to see the artist at large?
The whole thing turned into a joke after I took this picture of him
and those heavenly rays of sunlight danced upon my little mischief maker,
as if I am being mocked by something much larger than me, lol.
Holy crap, I can hear the wild turkeys outside, I am going out for a look!!
