STAMPloartions Inspirations #70

It's STAMPlorations time on my blog today.  Shery has such a fun selection of images over at the store.  I love that you can make CAS cards, or a media type of tag!  Today, I went with a tag.

I started with Gessoing my tag - swiped on some direct to paper ink [distress inks], then I laid a stencil over the tag and spritzed with water.  Because I wanted a little more color, I just smooshed some ink onto my worksheet, spritzed that with water and dragged the tag through it.  Once dried, I grabbed the Mixed Media Grunge set and started stamping.  Once I was happy with the look, I used some Inka Gold Copper color with the Bubbles stencil and filled in a few circles.  I cut out my flower [Bloom Sketches] and sponged on ink to color it, adhered it to some cut out leaves, and layered that onto my tag.  Stamped off a sentiment and my tag was done.  I really like the way this turned out.  That's the fun thing about multi media stamping -- just keep adding and layering until you are happy.

Mixed media marvelous! The coral/blue combination is especially striking! I have some gesso (not sure why *grin*); perhaps I should use it...Thanks for the inspiration!

This is so pretty Vicki. LOVE that smooshed, stamped and stenciled background. The copper ink really shines. And the blue flower looks amazing! Love how it plays off the orange tones of the copper. Gorgeous creation! xx
