I had to share the AMAZING stamps from Finnabair. They are beyond gorgeous...and total works of ART in and of themselves.
So get busy and check out the links and get your LSS to order them...you'll LOVE them!
This is how I started. I used the new Blue Mica Powder and Modeling Paste over the Grungy Grid Stencil on 3 different sized tags. The new Stencils from Finn are perfect for Journaling and have small enough patterns to use on tags and cards as well.
(new products should be available in stores sometime in February. I link here to the wholesale site so you can see them.)
I used the large tag to start with and stamped the Finn image with VersaMark Ink. Then I sprinkled black embossing powder on that image and heated.
The deep black image is now perfect for creating contrast with a more subtle background.
I added Mustard Seed, Broken China, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean , Peacock Feathers and Black Soot Distress Inks all over the tag. Using lots of colors and several layers makes for a deep, rich, color...just like when you paint your walls. The more coats of paint, the richer and deeper the color you achieve.
This is a picture of most of the new products that should be arriving soon!
The new Weaving Stencil was added with Vintage Photo Distress ink and various other stamps were added with Black Archival Inks.
The bubbles were stamped on Sunrise Sunset Sunbeam paper and cut out. Then I glued them around the tag background.
These fabulous new little Clear Stamps are from Finnabair. I stored them on plastic sheets that came with the Cling Stamps and labeled with a Sharpie marker. Perfect to punch a hole in the corners and hang on a ring.
I added a bow with a Mechanical Tassel combination.
The Crackle and Messy Clear Stamps were stamped on the tag background with Archival ink. The emblem stamped behind Finn is stamped with red Archival Ink. ART in the Heart is colored with a Tombow pen and lots of white pen marks are added around the tag for contrast.
I love how this turned out. Stamping and Tags have always been one of my favorite things to do.
Let me know if you have any questions.
