Donna is hosting the Tag Along Challenge Blog this week and she has chosen the theme of fairy tales! I suppose my favorite fairy tale has always been Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! Everyone loves a good love story, right? But, creating a tag with Snow White was just so...well, expected, and I love the UN-expected! So, meet Dopey! Other than the prince, of course, Dopey has always been my favorite.
I used a #8 tag from Ranger and covered it with some bluish-greenish-yellowish paper from my stash. To add a bit of interest to that background, I used a new stamp I received from my friend Barbara (thanks again!), but rather than inking it up, I painted it up with DecoArt's Green Gold fluid acrylic. Since I still had paint on my foam brush and I hate to waste anything, I used the brush to ink up the edges of my tag, paying particular attention to creating a wider border on the bottom to "ground" my image.
I also used the remaining paint on my foam brush to ink up my Stampotique text stamp for my sentiment. I thought it was the perfect sentiment as Dopey doesn't speak, yet communicates just the same!
There was still a bit of paint on my craft sheet, so I spritzed it with water and let my Ranger crinkle ribbon absorb it. I crumbled it and set it aside to dry. It got quite stiff, but I love having the matching ribbon!
I hope you will join in on our fun at the Tag Along Challenge Blog this week. Thanks for your visit and your comments; both are important to me!
