Fabric Tags

I wanted to work with stamping directly to fabric and then painting the image with watercolors. Today’s theme “TAGS” at Practical Scrappers was my jumping off point.  I made a tag shape from a scrap of linen fabric and used permanent ink to stamp the image of the woman with sunglasses.  Then I used chalk to shade the skin and watercolors to paint the hair and clothes.  To make this summer card sizzle, I added gold netting, sea shells, and ribbons. The card couldn’t hold everything I wanted to use so I extended the sun and palm leaves over the edge of the card.  I love the extra dimension this adds.
Visit the ladies at Practical Scrappers for many more original ideas on how to use tags.
