Inspirational Tags - Imaginarium Designs

This is my second project for Imaginarium Designs this month - a pair of "Inspirational" Tags - loosely based on Tim Holtz's January/February Tags from the 12 Tags of 2013.
I cut the tags from some 7 Dots Studio paper from the Domestic Goddess collection. I started out my using a Crafter's Workship template (Mini Antiquities) with Martha Stewart White Texture Paste. I used Imaginarium Designs Edward Relief Chipboard collection for these tags. To coordinate with the background paper, I first coated them with gesso and then used a blend of three colours of Gelatos - Guava, Bubble Gum and Butter Cream. This was my first time working with the Gelatos and I loved the creamy texture and easy blending! 

The sentiments were created with Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Stamps and some Memento Dye Ink in Rich Cocoa. I really wanted the sentiments to be prominent - so I stamped on some white paper (to match the stencilling) and mounted them on 3D Foam Adhesive. I created these tags as part of the 7 Dots Studio February challenge as a little gift to myself to display in my craft room - often need a little inspiration to get the crafty mojo going. Here are some close-ups of the tags!

I used three of the small Edward Relief and part of the Edward Relief Border chipboard on this tag. I added a Prima Wooden Clip, Making Memories leaves and some ribbon, lace and a rose from my stash (I misted it with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist a long time ago and can't remember what colour I used...)




For this tag, I added some May Arts Baker's Twine, a We R Memory Keepers Cameo and some ribbon from my stash.
