This mini Lawn Fawn stamp set was a must have for two reasons! First, I love puns and second, my daughter visited Peru last summer and has fun stories of getting up close and personal to some llamas and alpacas. When I saw the CAS Challenge on SCS this morning, I knew I wanted to ink up this fun alpaca and include it on a tag. The scarf - made in India - was a purchase during a fun sale while on a cruise ship last year. Everything in the sale was $10, so I immediately headed to the scarves - knowing they would be great gifts and lightweight to pack!
On to the tag creation...I smooshed my 2 favorite distress inks (Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron) on some TH watercolor paper. I then dropped some water over the paper (by tapping a paint brush) after I dried the inks with my heat gun. The droplets lightly "bleached" out a splatter effect. The image was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics, then die cut. The white banner was cut using MFT's Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics. The tag itself is one of my favorite die cuts by Reverse Confetti.
Copics: BG32, BG15, E000, E01, E40, E42.
