So I've a couple of jumbo tags showing off the smallest of the latest JOFY releases - delicious little versions of her larger flowers, just right to fit on an ATC.
I'm back on my Kraft neutrals - the opposite of what one might think of for these flowers, but I think it shows off the stamps nonetheless.
And I'm back on my trios - three being such a pleasing number, and also exactly right to fit on a jumbo tag!
So one tag is very corrugated, using white corrugated card from the Funkie Junkie Boutique, and grey cardboard cut up from some packaging.
And the second tag reverses the colours slightly, using a white painted background and a bit of simple fussy-cutting using wax paper to highlight the flowers.
I loved doing the doodling with the white Inkssentials pen on the first one.
And I inked the edges of the corrugated card with dark brown to show off that gorgeous texture.
I doodled my own borders to match the ones on the stamps, and used a sepia PITT pen to add lines down the centre of the corrugated background, adding depth to the valleys.
No tag is complete without its topping, and for this one I used lots of seam binding... some left in its natural white and cream, some dyed with Distress Stains.
It's then tied in multiple bows, tying one half of white with a brown, one cream with a white and so on until you've used up all the ends!
On the second tag of the pair, I used Watercolour Ground to give a gorgeous thick coating on the card, ready for stamping on.
And I used Crunchy Wax paper from PaperArtsy to restamp and then fussy cut the flower heads so that I could layer them over the top.
(Some of the smaller round heads I used a hole punch for - shhh!)
I inked the torn edges to give them an extra boost.
The jumbo tag had a wash of gesso for shabby chic good looks, and then I used Snowflake Fresco paint to stamp the texty bits of the stamps repeatedly for the wordy background.
This one is finished off very simply with some of my favourite twine.
So there's my double trouble for you today. I love that no matter how simply you treat them, these stamps still come up singing!
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you soon, either here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland.
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
I'd like to enter these in the Very Strict Challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show
I think there's just time to get them into the Anything Goes week at Simon Says Stamp
And with all that white corrugated card bought from the Funkie Junkie Boutique, I'd like to pop it into the Sunday Share over at Frilly and Funkie too
