Teasel Tag

Afternoon everyone,

Thank you ladies for your comments on my last post.

A quick post to share a little tag I made recently.

I hadn’t intended to make this.  I was playing around with some inks and made a complete mess of the piece of water colour paper I was using and ended up tearing the best part away and stamped on it.



Really quick and simple this one. No masking just over stamping.

For the background of the tag, I spritzed some ink through a stencil to make a little bit of a pattern. I then stamped the script and postage marks.  Using bits of post-it, I masked off the little images on the photo film stamp, inked it up, removed the masks and stamped the image straight over the top of the scrip and post marks.  *I coloured a piece of water colour paper with inks and stamped the teasel collage image.  Tore around the edges, added a bit of distress ink to the edges and attached it to the tag. To finish off, I added the stamped 9’6 tiny tag.

Just to share, all of the stamps used in this project and on the tag in the previous post are currently on offer at Crafty Individuals.

Crafty Individuals stamps used:

Teasel Collage stamp CI 121  (*My personal favourite*)
English Background Script CI 161
Inky Borders CI 451 (I used the photo frame from the set of 3)
Vintage Postmarks background Stamp CI 481
More Vintage and Ephemera Multi elements stamp CI 469
Various Inks

That’s about it from me today.

Take care,

Flo x

      Hi Beverly. Lovely to hear from you. Its a relatively new one on me as well. Teasel is the name of the spiky flower on the tag. I have seen these thistle like flowers but hadn’t realised that was the name. Thank you for calling in. Hope all is well.
      Hugs Flo x

    You always blend layers, collage-ing and stamping so beautifully, Flo … this card is a perfect example of your prowess! There’s so much interest and texture (and French … tee hee!) … I’ve spent a lovely long time just taking it all in … and it’s fabulous! Hugs, Anita 🙂

    I do love the tag and the layers, Flo!! As always, you are creating beautiful pieces. I am just now able to do some catching up in blogland. We have a temporary internet set-up until AT&T can get the rest of us up and running. I will be posting about the book soon, I hope. It is complete and I have two women reading it for editing. Keep creating your lovlies.

    Blessings to you, my friend,

    Love the tag Florence. I’ve been doing some ink spritzing myself this weekend. I attended a Dyan Reavesley class in my area. Quite an eye opener. x

    Sometimes things go that way, but at least it is only paper and it did make a wonderful tag. I love that little teasel image. It reminds me of making hedgehogs at school!
