Anyone who’s been calling by here regularly knows my love of a good tag! Yet, it’s been a while since I’ve used one on a card and yet they make perfect focal points.
I started by stamping the poppies from the new Clearly Besotted From All Of Us set on Arches watercolor card with Versafine Onyx Black ink and watercolored with my favorite paints (Schmincke, Daniel Smith, Daler Rowney and Winsor & Newton). I accented the centres of the poppies with white and glitter gel pens. Once dry I die cut with a Large Tag and strung with black twine.
For the sentiment, I pulled out some Green Leaf card, stamped the sentiment in Versamark and white heat embossed before trimming in to a banner and foam mounting over the tag.
The tag is in turn foam mounted on a Marshmallow card base with a strip of Desert Storm card with a Stitched Whirl Background.
I always love how the tag focal point pulls your eyes to the main feature – those gorgeous poppies :D The new From All Of Us set will go live along with the rest of the new release at 10pm UK time, 5pm EST, on 5th March at Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp. In the meantime check out Stephanie’s blog for more inspiration and links to the rest of the Design Team including our guests for March Keren Baker and Yoonsun Hur :D
