Here's today's posts from IMAGINE Crafts:

And from Viva Las VegaStamps!:



The base for my tag is my collection from 7 Dots Studio called Nature Walk. I've stamped in the background with the Waybill/Invoice background in Versamark Smoky Grey. I've also used the Versamark as an antiquing ink around the edges using the Imagine Crafts sponge applicators. HOW COOL ARE THESE?? Then I distressed the tag edge. I layered some stamping of the Milk Bottle and Flowers stamp in Versamark Onyx Black, and then stapled down a couple diecut elements from Nature Walk.




Then there was a bit of laying with some thread, a clay face, a metal crown and a dymo label maker. Finish it off with a little bit of doodling and hole punch, and this is what you end up with!!!


Please feel free to watch the following project video:


And be sure to see what everyone is up to all week!

  2. Okay, this is fun! I love your tag, and I never would have thought of punching random holes, but such a clever idea. Love the new Nature Walk collection, too.

  5. I enjoyed watching your process. Most videos I watch the artist already knows exactly what will be on the project. The holes your punched were pretty cool, I thought it was paint splatter. Cool tag!

  7. Such a great tag! I love that clay face although I was hoping it was a rubber stamp. I was ready to buy that right up! The punched holes are really a fun idea. The tones of your tag are really cool too.
