Rolling Recipe Tag 14


Here is the next tag in the series of Rolling Recipe Tags over on UK Stampers Forum.  This one is no. 14 and had to have:

*   Stripes
*   Gems
*   Leaves

I started by cutting a blank white card tag and covered the front with some printed stripey paper.  The die cut strip down the right hand side is cut using the Big Shot and one of the Tim Holtz 'Alterations' dies, this one is ornate.  This was stamped with a TH letters stamp and sprayed with a home made mica spray in a duck egg blue tint.  This was then stuck in place and trimmed.


The plate was stamped on white card with a fern stamp (Paperartsy) several times with onyx black Versafine and with Memento cottage ivy ink. The background was coloured direct to paper with ColorBox chalk inks in tangerine, orchid pastel and amber clay  A swirl stamp (Wendie Rhodes) was also stamped with lilac posies Memento ink. A punched bird (Martha Stewart) was made using the stripey paper and applied before matting onto more of the stripey paper.  A small self adhesive sentiment was added.


The base tag was decorated with some vinyl swirls and the swirl stamp was stamped again in Memento ink as shown.


The plate was adhered on foam pads and some green gems added.  A piece of florists wire was then attached at the top of the tag to finish.

    Question: The plate was stamped on white card with a fern stamp (Paperartsy) several times with onyx black Versafine and with Memento cottage ivy ink."

    Any tip on stamping multiple times and getting a crisp image...how do you line them up so perfectly?

    Also a treat to stop by.
