Tag Good Times

newchallenge sssm

Hey, my lovely crafty friends, I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and new year. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, with the dawning of a New Year, it’s time to think about something new - new baby, new home, new product, new technique, new crafty stash. Please join us and show your new thing. I am looking forward to seeing what it is!

I was inspired to create a spring tag with a new wafer die this week.

I am looking forward to spring coming although I love beautiful snowy days in winter. On this tag, I first colored the background with Izink inks, then die cut it with the new Simon Says Stamp Heart Breeze Wafer Dies.

The framed sentiment was colored with Gesso and Distress Paints. Some Prima Flowers and Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker were adhered to add more interest.

I applied a thin layer of Crackle Paint on the tag to create some beautiful crackled texture.

After outlining the sentiment stickers with a Faber-Castell Pitt artist Pen Black, I adhered them on the tag using Tombow glue.
