This week for the Justwordz DT project Kim gave us a hard one....we had to make a tag. Sounds simple enough and it was other then a panic I felt before I started as this was my first ever tag! Honestly though, I am super proud of this one. I really love how it turned out and I went really far outside my box!
You'll notice I used all really bright colours this week. Well, that is because the day I was making it was sunny and 25. I was in a bit of a tropical mood after the terrible weather we have been experiencing here in Nova Scotia this summer.
One of the neat things I did on this tag that was outside my norm was that I created the background paper. After getting the tag cut out in the blue it looked like it was missing something. I bought these circle Hero Arts stamps a while ago and have never inked them up so I gave it a shot. You can't really tell that the dots are all in circles after I got everything on but I still really liked the effect.
I also did some inking on this card which I am slowly feeling more confident doing (having the right supplies really helps...get yourself some artist sponges and you will be glad)
To finish off the card I sprayed it with glimmer mist (this was another one of those had to have items that has been collecting some major dust). Now this was the part I was scared to death to do as it was finished and I always seem to mess it up when I just want to add that 'little something' right at the end. Does this happen to anyone else? Anyways you can't see it in the picture but the entire tag is all simmery and looks awesome!!!
Ok if you are still with me thanks...not sure why I am so long winded today (home alone with no one else to talk to maybe lol) Don't forget to head over to the Justwordz blog to check out the rest of the DT creations as I know they are going to be amazing!
Have a wonderful weekend!
