Hello my friends! I am back to making a few tags, lately. The prompt at The One Little Tag Craft Challenge has actually changed, but it was song lyrics. So my tag is based on a song lyric.
I recently got a new Tim Holtz stamp set, "Crazy Dogs" and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use it.
I stamped the images onto some card stock. I roughly sponged some distress ink over the images and went in and added a bit of detail with my distress markers and a white gel pen. I had sponged over the eyes. My intention was to add some "googly eyes", but do you tjink I could find them??? S,o, I coloured in the eyes with my white gel pen and added the pupils. this actually worked out well because it allowed me to direct the dogs gazes.
I used a background from my stash that I had created earlier. I had used distress ink, a Tim Holtz stencil, some distress paints applied with bottle cars and some splatters (which I love, as you may know!)
I cut out the pups (I don't have the dies, yet) which is kinda tough when you can't see, so they definately are not perfect! I also stamped the images on my background. This helps to add detail back in that may get cut off, whiskers for example. It's a good little trick if it's not something you do already. I punched out my hearts and printed out the lyrics from Donny Osmond's "Puppy Love". Am I dating myself, lol?
I inked the edges and mounted to black cards, as usual.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed my "Puppy Love" tag.
Have an awesome and artful day!
