Hello, friends! Awhile back I raved about the freedom I feel when crafting on tags. Well, I had a great time inking and stamping up a few, as well as a layout, for Hampton Art. Today’s post over there showcases all my projects for them this month. Want to see my tags? I will show you here – all the details are listed over at the Hampton Art Blog.
The first incorporates texture pastes, heat embossing, and tons of spraying.
Here are some details – the blossom…
Some lovely hills and valleys…
This is what I often do – let the media sink and pool in the valleys, and accentuated the hills with ink. For this project, I stamped into texture paste – fun!
More hills and valleys. For my next project, I used the same stamp, and lots of media, but a more vibrant palette and a much simpler approach.
I had forgotten how much I absolutely love dry embossing – above a simple clear heat emboss which then functioned as a great mask.
I really love the imperfect stamp – media got into all the little nooks and created some interesting texture.
For my third tag, I use one, yes only ONE, mist lol! I had some funky fringed chiffon and used a color combo that I rarely frequent – fast and easy.
Lastly, I have a layout of my cocker spaniel, Mabu…
Got more mists, anyone?… I wish one of my favorite media manufacturers would give me some :-) Here I used a combo of mists and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens for some of the stamping. This way, I have the same colors in my stamping as in my background, and the same fun mixing of colors.
I love this picture of Mabu – it was taken when my life was much tougher. And seriously, had it not been for that dog, I don’t know how I would have made it through.
Isn’t he cute?
That’s all for today! Hope you’ll stop by the Hampton Art Blog to leave me a little love – thank you!!!
