Dawn McVey helps us create our own background paper this week.
Not only one stamping but doubled up!
She carefully advises to achieve the best results, as this can be overpowering if you get carried away
(as I've tried this before and found results a bit busy)
Had to do more tags for All Things Tinsel so went to work.
Pale and sweet, just like the bridal jewelry they are packaged with.
The first stamp is a Stampington Ledger Flourish wood mounted that was centered and stamped with Sweet Blush.
Then with Smokey Shadow, a Boutique Borders frame, positioned over the first stamp.
Thanks is copper embossed and is from Mini Blooms. Also stamped a little 'so much' beneath it.
This is where things got crazy.
Working on 2 projects at once, and dealing with an uncontained mind, I felt the sweet blush was too pale. So I reached for the re-inker to well, re-ink the pad. Only it wasn't sweet blush, it was Hibiscus Burst! Oops! I needed to do about 20 tags so I continued with what I call, Sweet Burst!
I think I like it better!
Also changed things up by adding die cut flowers from Bigger Blooms.
Too much? I thought it would be, to reproduce 20 times, so I simplified.
Same layout, same colors (with the oops ink pad!), a few sequins, and 20 tags later:
Just in case you're not bored silly with this post, this is a comparison of the pale and brightened up tags.
Needless to mention, a Sweet Blush inkpad will be in my next PTI order!
