I made a tag just to get into the mood although I have already way to many ideas for using my new Scrapcosy stamps from PaperArtsy. The trouble with too many ideas is that I mess around and don't actually produce anything for ages. I want to make a mini book, some cards, ATCs, a canvas and more but there are just not enough spare hours so I will exercise some control ... for now.
The first thing I wanted to do is enter the PaperArtsy Challenge #13 : Colour - Mint, Sage, Claret and Gold. That is a colour combination that works really well for vintage designs.
Here is my tea themed tag :
I used images from the new release stamp set ESC16 by Scrapcosy, the new Seaglass Fresco paint for the background and infusions to colour the images mixed with matte glaze. The lace and word cloud are stamped and embossed with WOW metallic brass sparkle and the spoon has metallic glaze on it to make it shiny.
The cup was stamped on smooth stamping card which had a pale blue wash of stormy sky oxide so it is not a stark white. All the images were fussy cut and the cup mounted with some foam pads to give it dimension.
So the tag ended up as a clean vintage design rather than the more grungy vintage that I originally had in mind but I am quite pleased with it. Seriously, those stamps are so good I reckon you can do anything in any style with them and get a good result.
A close up of the word cloud and don't you think that postage stamp is cute.
OK, that's me done for today. I'm off to make some tea. x
