Tag time!

Large Shroom and Splatter Long by Jo Capper-Sandon
Gog Lin by Jill Penney
Splatter by Carols Collection

Inks by Dylusions

It's the Stampotique Designers Challenge time again! This week Nellie is our hostess and she has challenged us to work on a tag or to use a tag somewhere in our art. Here's what Nellie has to say:

I love to work on a tag. For me it feels like it somehow invites you to think and work in another way than when you’re making cards. So I challenge you to make a tag or some project in which you use a tag. Any size, any color as long as there’s at least one tag involved in your artwork. 

To make my tag above I used some of the new Dylusion ink sprays in Bubblegum, Poppy and Sunshine - they are such a fabulous combination! To create a sense of foliage along the lower edge I used Splatter Long repeatedly and then I coloured two large Shrooms with Distress Inks. I thought it would be funny to have Gog Lin peeking out from underneath, and then I used a Shakespeare quote (Ooh! Get me!) which I changed slightly ... The original quote is from Macbeth .. just after 'double, double, toil and trouble', ... and originally said 'something wicked this way comes'.

As its the first challenge of the month you can use any stamps at all to create your tag. If you feel like joining in the fun, have a look at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog.

I love working on tags and often use a left over bit of inked card to make a tag, which I then often turn into a little hanging. here's another one I made because I was on a roll ..... I used Mink because she looks like she is in a foul mood, and then used my computer to generate text for my favourite put-down :-)

The ink spray colours are Bubblegum and Poppy by Dylusions, and also I used the fabulously useful Basic Backgrounds stamps to add some pattern to the background.
