Hello and welcome! I have been wanting to join in on some challenges and play with some ideas that I've had swimming around my brain lately. I enjoy viewing the artwork that the designers come up with over at Stampotique. I decided to go with a stamp named, Winter #6053 by artist Daniel Torrente. I will be submitting this for the SDC 154 Travel/Vacation
I began with a manilla tag and splashed some TH Distress Inks: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean & Black Soot. I also used a TH Stencil, Shatter #THS014
My choice of Copic Pens were: E00, BG10, BG75, C3. Multi-liner 3.0 for the words, "baggage, Really, What and Now" on the luggage.
I wrapped a sheet of red metal around a mini plant pot, stuffed it with a bit of moss and a TH Word key with the word, "Life".
I used Ranger's Claudine Hellmuth's Teal, Studio Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paint on Winter's shorts. I stamped an image of small wings on vellum paper, cut it out and twirled it around a pen to make it dimensional. A package of Colorbox Metal Drops I had purchased at Michaels came in handy, as well as a white airplane brad and a heart shaped rhinestone.
I snipped off a piece of a chain I had gotten from a yard sale and placed it on Winter's feet and placed it over the plant pot.
One of the last things I did was to add a piece of white colored dry wheat from Michaels and a generous amount of Glossy Accent on the foreground on each of the blue metallic drops (to give it a realistic droplet effect) and on the words I popped and the luggage bag. A Teal metallic ribbon added for the finishing touch.
Hope you guys enjoyed my tag and moreso, I hope you were inspired.
