Walking On The Wild Side

Hi!  "Change is in the air" is our November theme and we are creating tags.  This is Joyce Shaulis sharing with you my creation of some fall tags.  I love creating tags and I make them often for the satisfaction of being able to complete an awesome project in a short amount of time.  They are fun to give away and to make in theme sets.


To begin, I used Mystery mini POP ink to stamp onto white cardstock along with Susan's co-branded stamp set, "Going Wild".

Next, I colored in the images with fall colored markers and cut them out.

Using Decoart acrylic paints, I painted two tags using Sour Apple, Tangerine and Bright Yellow with a wide paintbrush. 

With two sizes of sequin waste, I used Cocoa ink and Fresh ink to stamp through the stencils. 


Next, I used a small brush to make plaid lines and squiggle lines with the paints in Sour Apple, Bright Yellow and Deep Burgundy. Using a cosmetic sponge and the doodle stencil, I was able to stencil the numbers in Bright Yellow paint.

Then I adhered the colored, cut out images with Decou-page.  I also smudged the edges of the tags with Cocoa ink. 

Using a charcoal pencil, I outlined the images and gently smudged them with a Q-tip.  For added dimension, I smudged the tag edges in Mystery. 

I hope you enjoyed my little project and now I invite you to also 'take a walk on the wild side" and create some fall tags to share.
