Happy Tuesday!
This card started as some “no rules” experimentation… and turned into a funky card that will hopefully give encouragement to an artistic friend who is fighting some health battles right now.

I love these sentiments & face images by Dina Wakley, and had fun working with them on an inked up tag I had set aside.  I layered some collage paper, added more ink and stamped over it, then gathered other pieces to assemble a complete card.  This fun tassels embellishment seemed like a good fit!

Enamel accents seemed like like a fun way to add texture and make her hair stand out!  A bit of watered down white paint allowed me to add shading to her face.

She’s unconventional… strong, brave, kind… and certainly unique!  She ignores the rules and she is fierce enough to fight and win!

inky hugs to you and whatever battle you are facing right now,

Tara

Happy Tuesday!

Today I want to share with you a tag I finished up… it started as an experiment with Distress Oxide (the background is all faded jeans on a black tag) and I finished it up with some new botanical layers from The new idea-Ology release by Tim Holtz.

My background was inked and stenciled with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide on black, then I added some simply stamped roses by Dylusions over it.  I decided to bring some spring to it with butterflies and flowers from the new botanical layers- so many great pieces in this package, it is stuffed full with 83 printed & die cut shapes!

I tied everything together with a bit more yellow… I inked up some book print with gesso using Distress Oxide in fossilized amber & Distress Ink in wild honey.  I blended the colors with a wet paint brush then spritzed with water to see a bit of extra Oxide action 🙂

I selected a sweet sentiment from this “everyday greetings” stamp set by mama elephant and glued my layers together, then finished it off with yellow silk ribbon and touches of nuvo glitter drops.  These are a fun addition that’s like a mix of glossy accents & stickles!
