Tag Tuesday Challenge - Christmas in July!

This weeks Tag Challenge over at Louise's Blog is to use Christmas colors in your tag! It was a bit hard for me to get into red and green and gold, or even blue and white, but once I got going, it was OK.
Here is my entry:
The beautiful ballet dancer is from Lost Coast Designs. The background is corrugated cardboard painted with gesso, stamped with red ink and then I drizzled red and gold paint on it. I outlined the whole tag in kryon gold pen. The ribbons are green and gold with white polka dots. I put 3 rhinestones on the left and added the punch hearts and fleur de ly, and the heart button.

Thursday Challenge

Here is my entry for the Thursday Challenge - Vintage Tags!

I glued a page from an old book to a tag and sponged white gesso to it. I inked some scrolls on the tag with bundled sage - hard to see. I glued a piece from an old music sheet and then stamped the pne of the new Gibson Girl stamps from Lost Coast Designs. I inked in some vintage sepia and straw in her hair. I glued a piece of lace to the bottom of the tag. I used the same lace to place under the tag and then glued. I added the vintage button on top and stamped the flowers and heart. I used a dab of bronze paint in the middel of the flowers and on the top of the heart. I glued 2 buttons to the bottom of the card.

Paperbag Studios Challenge

Paperbag Studios' July Challenge is about Flowers. Use one of their flower stamps, or one of their other stamps and some kind of flower on a card.

Tag Tuesday Challenge - Faces!

Louise's Tag Challenge this week is to include at least one face on your tag. I recently purchased a series of different size faces from Invoke Arts and was excited to use them.
I used vintage glass ink as the base of the tag. I stamped some bubble wrap in brown and added a script stamp from Paperbag Studios in purple and black. The terrific raven border is from Lost Coast Designs. I stamped 2 small Invoke Art face stamps in purple and then a big face on a separate piece of paper which I outlined in bronze metallic pen. I glued Holtz's film strip to the tag,  taped the feather and glued the face on top. I added 3 light blue rhinestones for bling. The whole tag is outlined in bronze also.

Tag Tuesday Challenge - Hearts!

This weeks Tag Challenge at Louise's Blog is to use at least one heart on your tag.  I decided to use the flaming heart stamp from Lost Coast Designs. I stamped it in pink and then cut it out. I added a little bit of blue ink to the heart, added some pinks, blue and gold fabric paint to give it dimension. Then I punched another heart using a page from a spanish book and spritzed gold glimmer mist on it and outlined it in kryon gold.  On the tag, I used 2 colors of distress ink and spritzed the same gold glimmer mist. I used the distressing tool on the perimeter of the tag to give it a shabby look. The heart border stamp is from LC Designs and the french script is Paperbag Studios.  Then I added 2 ribbons and 3 faux rhinestones.

New Cards!

I made these cards using the multi handmade paper background - torn into different shapes and glued on.
I then stamped an image on with black ink. Sometimes I do a little coloring. Then I add embellishments of buttons, lace, paint etc.
