If you are looking for my post for this week's Stampotique Designers' Challenge, it is immediately below.
I was intrigued by the Tag Along Blog Challenge theme this week, so decided I wanted to participate. The theme is "Nature's Glory," so I set out looking at all my floral stamps. Stampotique Originals has a lot of them, but I chose something that is, by some, considered a weed because it most often grows naturally. It's called "Spidergrass." I also have a text stamp that I love, but hadn't had a chance to use. It's called "Wildflower Verse," so is just perfect!
I began by applying a few drops of two of Ranger's Archival ink reinkers on my craft mat, and added a bit of copper mixative. I smeared these around with a palette knife, then pressed my tag into the ink and smeared it around. I did this a few times until I had good coverage. Once dried, I added a bit of washi tape at the bottom to ground my flowers, then stamped my text below it. I stamped my floral image once on the left side. I then created a mask of the stamp, and stamped my image a second time over the mask on the right side, just a bit lower than the first impression. A ribbon, and done! Take a look:
If you like tags, I hope you will participate and create something fun today!
