IO challenge- Tag You're It!
Greetings friends. Today is all about tags...either alone or on a card. Luckily, Impression Obsession has lots of new tag dies that makes everything so much simpler.
If you would like to learn more about the challenge as well as see a list of participating designers, you can read all about it over on the Impression Obsession blog.
I don't know about you, but I absolutely love a pun. I knew that I had to pair my cute snail image with the corresponding sentiment. It makes me smile.
To make the card, I first made my background. I had some left over ink on my Dancing Leaves Cover a Card background, so I spritzed it and stamped it on some 140lb watercolor paper. I kept repeating the process on different pieces of paper so that I had lots of backgrounds. Each time I spritzed the paper and stamped it, the image got fainter and more indistinct. The piece I used on my card is one of the last pieces I made.
For my tag, I cut out some 140lb watercolor paper using the new Stitched Tag die. I then stamped it with the Fairy Snail in Versafine ink and colored it with Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I added my Snailed It sentiment, popped up the tag with some foam tape and added a twine bow.
