So it is bank holiday weekend and the sun is shining here - I hope it is where you are too.
The prompt for Week 35 is "Use a Verse".
For my tag, I have used the "She sells sea shells" verse as I like creating sea/watery tags. They just seem to come easy to me as I love the blue/green shades more than all the other colours.
I started off using blue Distress Inks. Then with a paint brush, I made wavy green lines using Distress Inks too. Once dry, I then ran the tag through the Big Shot using a Stampin' Up embossing folder called "Seaside". I don't think the photograph picks it up, but I also used Glossy Accents in wavy vertical lines too. I then put it to one side to dry.
I then raided my pre-cut dies for seaweed type foliage and found a small die cut fish that I hadn't used on an earlier project. On the beach earlier in the week I had picked up a few small shells that I thought would be suitable for the tag.
On the computer, I typed the verse, changing the font and colour and leaving plenty of clear-line spaces between each word. Once printed, I then cut the words up and inked the edges using a lime green and a blue ink.
Once the tag was dry, I was able to assemble all the bits. (To secure the shells, I used a mixture of foam pads and glossy accents).
Finally I added clear rubber dots and self adhesive dots to replicate air bubbles.
