Tag of the Month....HaPpY VaLenTinE DaY!
This is my newly released stamp "Pricilla" hitting the stores as we speak. I have to admit, she was not my favorite stamp and now that I have had a chance to work with it I love her! Her ruffles, leggings and hat are so much fun to play with. She's a bit steampunk and I know we usually think of the dark, grungy colors when we think steampunk. I decided to lighten her up a bit for Valentines Day.
I love the feminine look of pink and brown with lace and ruffles...who doesn't? I dug into my paper stash and found the perfect paper for the tag itself...a gorgeous paper from the Prima Fairy Rhymes collection designed by Jodie Lee. It went perfectly with a Valentine paper collection by My Mind's Eye that I fell in love with. The tiny metal lock and key is new product of mine that comes with crowns and handbags that fit perfectly with my stamps.
When I make my tags, I simply just start pulling beautiful paper combinations together and start cutting! I then pull any embellishments that I know will fit perfectly with my theme. I then just move things around until I am happy with the composition and start gluing. It's just that simple!
