Hello lovelies, summer break is officially over at the STAMPlorations blog and it´s time to start the regular challenges again. This months theme is FALL in all it´s glory!!!
So create a project featuring a TAG with a fall theme. As an optional twist you are asked to use gold, red and orange.
Here is what I created for the reveal and some steps how I created this tag:
Here is the step-by-step:
Step 1: Take various fall tones of Distress Oxides and start stamping with the leaves stamp (Trendy Leaves) by first stamping the full/even/solid image in a lighter tone.
Step 2: After that take the decorated leaf images and stamp on top of the previously stamped images with a slightly darker tone. This way you create a two-toned, patterned, randomly colored leaf image.
Step 3: Die cut the leaf stamped paper with the tag die and outline with a black pen. Next stamp green toned leaves with the Layered Leaves stamp set in two steps. First stamp the green solid image, then stamp the “outline” image with black ink. Now fussy cut. Step 4: Spray/apply golden Glimmer Mist on white paper and stamp the sentiment with black ink using the Woodland Friends stamp set. Fussy cut into a banner form. Next stamp an animal from the same set with black ink, fussy cut and color with spray inks/stamp inks. I ended up using a squirrel in the end as it better fitted the tag than the deer. Now adhere everything on place and decorate with ribbon and sewing thread.
