Sunday Challenge No 2

Here are my two offerings for the UK Stampers Sunday Challenge No 2

The challenge was to make two tags one in colour and one in black & White using the same stamp/s.

For the coloured tag I have covered a cricut made tag with some Japanese Washi Paper I bought on my visit to Japan recently. I cut the hole through with the Crop-o-dile. I then applied three layered colours of Brilliance ink (pearlescent crimson, pearlescent ivy and rocket red gold) from top to bottom to the oriental stamp (Inkadinkado 93191) and stamped centrally over the Washi paper. I applied a metallic pink eyelet with the crop-o-dile, edging the tag with pink chalk ink. I chose three pastel brads in lemon, mauve and pink and applied through the centres of some of the printed flowers and finished the tag with some 3mm organza and satin ribbon in pink, tied through the hole in the tag.

The black & white tag was made with the cricut and the same Inkadinkado stamp applied centrally after inking with Versafine onyx black ink. I then used a second stamp of Chinese calligraphy (Judikins artifacts cube 67181) to fill in the top and bottom of the tag. I used Brilliance starlite black ink on this. I then stamped another image of the Inkadinkado stamp in black and cut out the chrysanths and the chop image which I decoupaged over the original images with foam pads. I applied a black eyelet to the hole in the tag, edged the tag with black Stazon ink and knotted some plain black and white satin ribbon through the hole.

Hope you like them, and wonder what the next challenge will be?

  1. I forgot that you had seen some real oriental inspiration recently! Lovely paper, it's very pretty. I like them both, but I am drawn more to the black and white one, it's very striking.
