A decorated Tag made with AALL & Create stamps ......

I started with a piece of white card and made a background with a Chevron stencil and Distress inks by applying the inks direct to the stencil, spritzing with water and laying down on the card.

I then stamped the balloon in Versafine black ink onto the background and then stamped again on another piece of white card. The balloon was trimmed out and coloured with watercolours and a waterbrush and treated with Glossy Accents. I used Ochre and vermillion (also colouring the background flags. I trimmed out the binoculars and coloured grey.

I then concentrated on decorating the background with more stamps in Grey Versafine Clair and red Distress Oxides. I added a couple of metal star embellishments and some adhesive gems.

The balloon and binoculars were added on foam pads over the original images and the adhesive words added as shown. The balloon and words were edged with grey Inktense pencil spread with a waterbrush to add depth.

The background was edged with Ochre Versamagic chalk ink and then matted onto some re-cycled packaging. A black eyelet was added with the crop-o-dile and the hole threaded through with some red grosgrain ribbon to finish.

  1. A wonderful tag Sid - and I agree with the sentiment of needing two six month holidays a year - I am officially retired, but seem to be working as much as ever with gardens etc!
