"I don't care if you lick windows, take the special bus, or ......"
have I ever mentioned how much I love Stampotique stamps?
If you read yesterday's blog post, you will have noticed that
the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge theme is
"P" is for Pink Halloween
and one of the swaps I'm doing this month is a halloween tag.
Ahh .... a perfect match!
This tag is a little wider than usual but I'm really pleased with how it all went together.
First I stamped the quote in the bottom corner of a piece of ivory card,
and then stamped "Relaxin' " next to it.
There was just enough room to add "happy halloween" down the side.
With 'worn lipstick' Distress Oxide ink on my craft mat, I spritzed the ink with water and swiped the tag through it. I let it dribble a bit and then mopped the excess with a tissue.
Next I added 'fired brick' Distress Ink through a spider web stencil, then spritzed it with water letting it dribble and dry naturally.
I coloured "Relaxin' " with watered down Distress Inks. With the excess inks, I smooshed a ribbon through the colours to co-ordinate with the tag. To finish, I added a black mat and tied the ribbon in place.
Stampotique - "Relaxin' "; "Quote #1"
Tim Holtz - "Simple Sayings"
Stampotique Designers Challenge - Anything but a card
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - "P" is for Pink Halloween
My apologies for the bold italics, but either blogger or my computer are playing silly buggers.
Oh well ...... such is life!
