Week 35 - 52 Week Mini Art Card / Tag Challenge 2017

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.
