Today I am sharing this tag which I made for More Than Words Mini Challenge DT inspiration.
My inspiration for this tag came from a number of ideas coming together but especially this stamp which I knew I wanted to use for the tag.
Overview of Process
I don’t have much of an overview this time as I didn’t take many photos as my background and some other elements were already made and so the tag was pretty quick to make. I am using this watercolour background I made recently and never used. I can’t remember why not, but it was perfect to use for my yoga girl tag. I marked out a tag shape and then cut the watercolour paper to size. Then I cut a piece of white card to the same size and glued them together for more stability. Then I made the little eyelet reinforcer thing from some white card that I inked up with Passionate Pink ink. I also edged the tag with this ink. I stamped my girl on the tag using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
When the ink was dry I added some gold paint splatters to the background and highlighted her clothes, hair and makeup with the same gold. I had some left over so I went over the edges of the tag with it as well. I added the Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk sticker (this one makes me laugh) and the black letters HI which I had already die cut, and then I added a few Nuvo Drops. All that was left to do was to add the purple ribbon and call it done.
I love my yoga girl stamp. I’ve used it a few times and actually used it quite recently too. On this background she looks very zen, like she’s floating in the air as she meditates.

I started something new for April and continuing:
Since we are all stuck inside and can’t leave the house, I thought I would try and do two things:
1. use this time to finish any unfinished projects
2. use as much recycled materials and scraps as possible (I do this a lot anyway) but also not to buy new stuff!
So, with that in mind, I will note the above on any posts, if applicable.
UNFINISHED PROJECT – NO
RECYCLED MATERIALS – YES and nothing new used,
