Rolling Recipe Tag 13

This weeks challenge was to make a tag with the following elements:

  1. A Face
  2. Leaves
  3. Gems
I decided to go a bit funky and use leaves but with not a tinge of green in them at all (no green ink was used but some green was made accidentally by overlaying different colours). This turned out to be a very bright little number indeed !

The base tag was cut from white card and the stamp of a ladies face (Cherry Pie) was stamped first with onyx black Versafine ink. I love this stamp ! The image was coloured lightly with Marvey Le Plume II pens.
A mask was made by stamping again on a post-it note and placed over the original image whilst lavender Impress dye ink was applied with cut'n'dry foam for the background. A leaf stamp (Crafty Individuals) was then inked with the same ink and stamped randomly over the image to decorate as shown.

The same stamp was then stamped repeatedly in lemon yellow, ultramarine, peony purple and lavender Impress ink to form the leafy layer and this was trimmed out.
The bottom half of the tag was then sponged with more Peony purple ink and a border stamp (Green Pepper Press) stamped in the same colour. The leafy section was then stuck into place with glue stick.

Next I cut out some flowers with a Martha Stewart punch out of an old M&S cake box and coloured this with more peony purple Impress before embellishing with purple self adhesive gems and sticking in place with glue dots. Another gem was applied in the ladies hair.

The word stamp (Cherry Pie) was stamped as shown with onyz black Versafine ink and an eyelet with some pink silk added with the crop-a-dile to finish.

Must say that I love the vibrancy of the Impress inks in this. Hope you like it.
