Light ......

Made a tag for a monthly swap on UK Stampers Forum ......

I cut a base (5 x 4 inches) out of white card and mounted this on some re-cycled packaging for sturdiness. I then stamped a wordy background (Tim Holtz) in Versamark ink and heat embossed this with white embossing powder. I then added some watercolours in a couple of shades of blue with plenty of water and a waterbrush (the embossing resisted this).

Once happy I stamped a few words (AAll & Create) in black and blue Archival ink randomly onto the background. The bulbs (AAll & Create) were stamped onto the background in Archival black ink and stamped again on white card which I then coloured with Prismacolour pencils, trimming out just the bulbs. I then twisted some dark blue craft wire to add detail to the hanging flexes and applied this with Glossy Accents.  Once dry the bulbs were applied over the stamped images on foam pads.

I then added a blue eyelet with the crop-a-dile and tied this through with some mauve gros-grain ribbon after edging the tag in mauve Versamagic chalk ink. I used a Dymo and black tape to make the words and adhered this as shown.

Finishing touches were to add a couple of square silver brads and a couple of iridescent swirls.

  1. Loving this Sid - great depth of colour and texture in the fascinating background. Loving the raised light bulbs, and the iridescent swirls are a masterful touch.
