Hi… I have a tag I made using one of those leftover toucan images from the papers I used for the Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge I sharee yesterday. I’ve entered it into the swap at UK stampers forum.
So the rule is that there has to be stamping so I decided to create my own background for the tag using stamps from an old Creative Stamping magazine. The different tropical leaves work so well with the toucan image. I then added some of the remaining paper as a strip along with a piece of yellow washi that I thought added some additional colour and brightness as I had chosen a craft tag for the base.
Next I added an orange circle (again leftover from the cards I shared on the 1st) and then layered the image onto some foam so there was dimension.
Next I chose the sentiment and stamped and die cut the Avery Elle using an orange ink. I then embellished with some black heart die cuts which I added the black wink of Stella to so there was some shimmer and contrast.
I finished off with scraps of yellow and black and white ribbons and twine to coordinate with the tag.
Hope you like it. I think it is a fun to use images such as this in different ways.
