Hello everyone, I have chosen to make a tag to show you today using the Owl Edges rubber stamp sheet showcasing the current stamps of the month from Chocolate Baroque.
I started my project by creating a wrinkle free distress background on a plain tag, using Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. I stamped the bullrushes across the bottom of the tag using Emerald Green Archival Ink, and added the small branch up one side of the tag using Coffee Archival Ink. I stamped the little owl onto a sticky label and then coloured it with Polychromos pencils. I also coloured the branches with pencils. I added some shading around the edges of the tag using Distress Inks for a bit of depth, and stamped a sentiment from the Steampunk Birds rubber stamp set onto the background.
Finally, I added some co-ordinating ribbon to the tag.
