Below are a couple more projects I completed for the Art Anthology/Stampendous Blog Hop we had last week.
While I was creating my I’ll Fly Away journal page for an Art Anthology post, I also pulled a few tags using the paint that was leftover on my Stampendous Creative Palette. I got three really good pulls off of it and still cleaned quite a bit off the palette when I finished.
Using a couple of the stamps from the Stampendous Grunge stamp set, I created a background on one of the tags.
Next, I stamped the Stampendous Moray Dahlia stamp onto a piece of cardstock using India Ink.
I cut the flower out and colored it with Art Anthology Lemon Tart, Mardi Gras, and Orchid Velvet.
Then I stamped the leaf stem that came with the stamp set, colored it with art Anthology Leaf Sorbet and Kona Velvet.
Then I once again got so involved I forgot to show this next step. I took a clear embossing pen and dabbed it all over the tag. I then sprinkled Crystal Embossing Powder from theStampendous White Encrusted Jewel Kit over the tag, tapped off the excess, and heat set.
I followed with some stenciling using our Beehive stencil and a mixture of our soon to be released smooth texture paste (WOOHOO) and Art Anthology Mardi Gras Velvet. I then stenciled DREAM using the Art Anthology Soliloquy stencil and a Micron Pen. I then colored the words with Art Anthology Lemon Tart Velvet and the background with Plus Colorations and the Round Brush from our Tool Set.
I couldn’t just stop at once tag, so I created two more.
This time I used the Stampendous Musical Motif stamp set and stamped out the keyboard onto cardstock. I cut it out and adhered it to the right side of my tag. I whitened the keys with Cotton Velvet and darkened the frets with Art Anthology Tuxedo Velvet, followed up with a coat of Art Anthology Splashed Sorbet for sparkle. I then added my quote and sprayed the cardstock with Juicy Colorations.
For the final tag, I used the houndstooth stamps from the Stampendous Dress Form stamp set and randomly stamped it over my tag.
Next, I stenciled a measuring tape using a Tim Holtz stencil and Lava Stone Effects (great texture!). I also added some more interest with our Cracked stencil and Silver Metal Effects.
Finally, I stamped the dress form onto cardstock using India Ink and cut it out. I thought this tag would look great on one of the Christmas I will be sending out to a swap partner.
