Sharing Some Lovely Tags ...

Happy Friday everyone!  I am getting in just under the wire to link up with Unity Stamp's "Friends with Flair" today, and I hope you like these three tags I created using one of the first set of stamps I ever purchased from Unity, "Decadent Pear", which have not gotten nearly enough use for how beautiful and versatile they are.  
I created the backgrounds for these tags stamping them with sepia coloured Archival ink and using sprays from Dylusions and Tattered Angels.
I stamped my pear images onto 140lbs watercolor paper in again with Archival sepia ink and then sprayed the paper with the same colors as I used on my background, after which I cut out and pasted my images onto the tags, layering and using foam pop dots as required.
I accented with a gold gel pen, added a bit of CTMH Liquid Glass for some shine and created a few shadows with my copic markers to make them pop off the page.


Now if you have been following any of my previous blog posts you know that Mr. Awesome finished my second studio space last week and I have been working pretty much non-stop in there, getting my hands all dirty and cut up playing with my stained glass. (happy sigh) I am so pleased with my first creation in two years that I thought I would share share it with you even though it is only about 75% complete.



I am calling it "Quilt Blocks" and although the glass portion is finished I am trying to decide what to do with the frame, and I think embossed metal is going to come into play, but I will share the completed project with all of you when I am done!
As always, Thank you for popping in today to see what I am up to, and please do leave me a comment if you like what you see!

    1. Thank you Lagene... I used my "warm Greys" in my copic markers to add a bit of shadow to the pears after I had glued them onto the tags...it really helped make them pop!

  10. Your tags are gorgeous. Love the colours. Love how you made those pear images pop. I am a bit of a texture junkie. These are yummy. I though it looked like leading around the images and then..... You do glass!!! And you like opaques and picture style. Snap. Twins, only a few thousand miles apart. Love your quilt blocks. Fab. Fab.

    1. You have such a keen eye my "Sistah from another Mistah"! Grin because YES! I think we are twins... For the 2 outside tags I used my Copic markers in Warm Greys to create a shadow that popped the image off the page, but for the middle tag I actually stamped and heat embossed the pears using a gold embossing powder and then when I didn't like the effect, I cut out the stamped and sprayed pear images and popped them over top the embossing so the gold outline showed... it ended up looking so "Old World Arty" that I LOVED the new effect... so another Happy Accicdent! by the way THANK YOU for always leaving me such lovely comments!

    2. Thank you. You inspire me to dig out all those glass bits and throw them together in an artistic sort of way. Unfortunately today I must dig out the muck from the sheep house before the lambing. Ah well, it always takes my little brain cell a while to get around to a eureka moment so maybe I will think glass as I shovel LOL. Hugz

  12. Your tags are just beautiful and I love, love, love your stained glass!!! I have always wanted to learn to do it but I couldn't take classes when I was pregnant and now raising 3 littles I can barely find the time to learn a new hobby. It's on my wishlist for one day though!
