Happy Wednesday to you. I have two more tags to show you today, continuing the Chocolate Baroque tag swap that has been running since January. Sometimes, it has been quite difficult coming up with ideas & my ‘N’ tag is a case in point. I don’t have a lot of CB stamps, so I have to make do with what I have. I spent weeks thinking about it & all I came up with was ‘nature’ & when I found the quote by Shakespeare I decided to go ahead.
I left the background very simple, just using Adirondack inks as a resist under distress inks. I made a background by stamping some of the Texture Fragments stamps onto white cardstock, stamped the butterflies from the Patchwork Butterfly collection on top & heat embossed with gold EP. I cut them out & attached them to the tag with silicon glue.
This ‘Ophelia’ stamp is the very first stamp I bought from Chocolate Baroque when I discovered them a few years ago. I stamped her on tissue paper with black Archival & then painted on the reverse with acrylic paints. I painted white acrylic paint over the colour paints & used that to attach the tissue paper to the tag.
I created the tag background by stamping a texture fragments stamp with Versamark & embossing with white EP. Then I blended Salty Ocean & Mowed Lawn distress inks over the embossed tag. The quote is by Shakespeare – again. I love Shakespeare!! The flowers are a Crealies die.
Thanks for looking, until next time,
Love & light
