Hi there! This is my very first project to enter at the Paper Issues blog! This month the challenge is You Are Just
Good morning, Oddies! Alexis here with some Thursday Inspiration for you. Today I decided to get inky and make a vintage tag using Frenchie Gwen and Distress Inks. This is actually my first time using Distress Inks to color an image and I’m really digging the soft, old photo feel of it. It’s definitely something I’ll do again! The background of the tag is a combination of cork, paint, paper scraps, mirror, dyed ribbon, flowers and a whole mess of ink.
I stamped the Frenchie Gwen image on watercolor paper for coloring using brown ink instead of black. I did the same with the two sentiment hearts from the same set.
I think next I’ll make a matching tag using Frenchie Kody, but his will be in all navy and red! In fact, I’m gonna go start that now….bye!!!
