Featured Artist – Tag You’re It Challenge #68

Hello everyone,

I am so excited to be a featured artist on Tag You’re It challenge blog. Thank you so much Tracey McNeely for inviting me back. I was a designer at the blog once then featured once previously. So, it is good to be featured back again.

This tag was inspired by my dog. Although my do is a Cocker Spaniel, I am a lover of all dogs. So I have to have Tim’s Crazy Dogs stamp set and dies in my collections.

To make this tag, I stamped one of the dog from the stamp set twice and I coloured with copic markers. I also stamped and coloured the accessories like the ball, bone, leash and the bowl. I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images including the eyes, nose and collar of the dog.

For the background on the tag, I sponged distress inks Dried Marigold and Ripe Persimmon through the brick stencil. I love bright colours. Then I stamped the sentiment “Love” from Simon Says Stamp Kristina’s Love stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink using Mini MISTI to get a full even coverage. Then I adhered the focal images some glued flush to the tag and the some foam mounted for added dimension. The smaller sentiment from the same stamp set is stamped on a strip of white cardstock and adhered vertically using foam adhesives. I added some tiny hearts punched out of some sponged cardstocks to add on top of the focal image. I also brushed Wink of Stella clear shimmer on those hearts. I used the leash as the tag ribbon.

Here are some closeup of the tag showcasing the dimensions.

Hope you are inspired by my tag. And I cannot wait to see your take on my tag. Thanks for having me as Featured Artist on Tag You’re It Challenge, Tracey!
