Darla Tag from REDlead

Got a box of goodies the other day from Chris and Sharon at REDlead in the St. Louis area.
So of course I had to try my hand. I experimented with various inks on the Photo Stamps. They are so sweet!

This one is on a #7 tag that I painted with Snowflake Fresco Paint using Cut-n Dry Foam in the center. Then I stamped Darla with Jet Black Archival ink. I love the distressed look that came out on the painted tag.

 The measuring tape stamp from the Vintage Sewing Lesson set is stamped at the bottom and the Butterflies are roll stamped in Coffee Archival Ink.

Then I put ink from Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress Pads on my Craft Sheet and picked up the color with a brush to paint in the photo stamp.

The Butterfly Flight stencil is added with Victorian Velvet and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks at the top and bottom. Details are added with Glaze Pens.

 

I used some Tunbled Glass, Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks around the outside edges of the stamp, and added some Black Glaze Pen dots and stitches.
 
 
The Ribbon is from REDlead and it's colored with a dab of Dusty Concord Distress Stain, crumbled and heat set.
 
 
I stamped the  Cherish stamp onto a piece of Manila cardstock and cut it out. It's added with a bit of foam tape.
 
This little cutie is too adorable for words!
So check out REDlead and see all the fun things they have to offer.

What a delightful tag! Love it, Linda. Could you tell me something: what is "roll stamping"? You've got me on that!!!
Have to just add at the same time that I enjoyed 100% all your gorgeous art on the Paper Artsy blog recently -- looking forward to more. . . . . we are so greedy!!

That photo stamps looks amazing on this tag. Really love the black stitching pen too. I've been so busy this week making 4 projects in less than 24 hours for Leandra to show at the Hobby + Stitch show this weekend. Can't believe I managed to get them done! I think I secretly love deadlines! Have a great week Linda. Michelle x
