Tulip Tag

I don't often make tags and if it had not been for a challenge to do so I most likely would not have made one. So I hope I pulled off a nice looking tag with the stamps and dies I used for it. When I bought the tulip vase stamp set I did not realize what a huge stamp it was so therefore only a portion of the design shows on the tag. But it still is a good representation of Spring.


I used the biggest of the luggage tags from Cutplorations (from Stamplorations line) and added the tulip design from the Stamplorations Layered Vase set. When I stamped the solid parts of the tulip I realized that there was a fine line crease along the edges of the tag and therefore the stamping did not take hold in those places. So I went and took a marker which matched the colors and colored over those solid parts. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I wanted a bit more detail so I took a black marker and decided to doodle on a simple dotted look close to the edge. I also brushed on some blue inside the tag and around the outer portion brushed on some pink. The last addition was some ribbon I had in my stash.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Challenge-Project
Double D Challenge-Welcome Spring

A cloudy and dreary day here with some rain and snow mix coming down. A good day to stay inside. I hope your day and week has gone well and that all of you are still healthy. Until next time, take care!

God bless,
Verna

I really like the stamp and, yes, it's rather large but good for partial stamping. You did a great job on your tag!

I like the way the tulip is filled in with color but not all the way. It is a nice look. Great tag, I almost never make them except at Christmas time. Stay well!

I just love how you have stamped that large image and your tag looks so contemporary and I love it Verna x. There's only one thing to do when the weather is dreary and that is to stay in and craft. Mind you I suspect a lot more of us will doing that for the foreseeable future! x.

For not making tags very often, you really came up with an awesome one! I love the pretty blooms.

Hello, Verna! I don't make a lot of tags either but I do like to make a few. This is gorgeous! I recently got this stamp and haven't inked it yet - thank you for inspiring! I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and healthy.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Fabulous use of this set! Made a wonderful tag.

TK said...

I think it's a perfect tag, and using a look that is not often scene on a card -- off the edge! Very pretty tag, Verna -- stay safe!

I love the shape of the die and the flower stamp is beautiful. It is artsy and looks great on a tag. The only tags I make are for gifts but I may have to rethink that and use one on a card.

Patti said...

Hi Verna : ) spring has surely sprung on your blog!! I love the sweet fresh colors you used and the portion of that image works perfect on this tag!!

BIG (((Hugs)))

Your tag is fabulous! I don't make tags for tags very often at all. I usually use tags as a design element on a card. I probably should make tags to add to packages! Yours is so striking. I really like the dotted border you added. Beautiful! Wishing you a happy and healthy week! Hugs!

Love your tag! Great shape and use of the Tulip stamp. Stay well and safe. Always enjoy visiting your blog.

Darnell said...

I love your tag, Verna! You did a great job of coloring and using that large image on your shaped tag! I also like how you fixed things with your marker and added the dots to bring in the eye of the beholder!! Take care 😷 and be safe!! Hugs, Darnell

Greta said...

So pretty! You stay healthy, too, Verna!

Lisa said...

That stamplorations tag set is my favorite! And love your beautiful tulips... can't even tell you had to "fix" the stamped image... great tag!
