Here is the page I did for Daisy, a long, long time ago:
And here are the two pages for Gina.....her colors are sepia, yellow, orange, red, black and gold.
And the second:
The background is colorwash, collaged papers, more colorwash, oil pastels. The fantasy city is kind of a mix of NY and Moscow, created from photos, clip art, postcards and my own drawings.
By the way, Gina is very pleased with them. (Me too!)
Stephen at ATT is hosting a tag swap. Only rule....we have to use Tim's new embossing folders (called texture fades) somewhere on the tags. Now, I'd ordered the folders ages ago, and have been waiting not so patiently for them to arrive. I really thought I'd have to drop out of the swap, but they came yesterday, and I was so excited, I got right to it. We were to make 6 tags (and we'll get 6 back), and mine are mostly alike. I did use a different texture fade on each one (simply so I could play with them), but other than a few other minor differences, if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Having said that, I'm still going to show you three. See if you can spot the differences.
I used Core'dinations paper....very cool stuff. The core of the paper is a different color than the outside, which makes for some interesting effects. After embossing, I sanded the raised areas so the core color shows through.
The heart and wings are cut with Tim's die called (oddly enough), Heart Wings. I stamped the eye with embossing ink and embossed it with black detail embossing powder. The crown is chipboard from Maya Road, and I used a glittery EP called African Gold. It turned out a bit too glittery, so I toned it down (yep, this is the toned down version) with some olive Stazon ink.
The tag is edged with a gold pen, and under the flying heart is a criss cross of black and gold ribbon. Some gold trim on the bottom finishes it off.
The sentiment (which I pretty much chose because size wise it fit on the tag, and it contains the word heart, and I do like it) is from Invoke Arts.
