Another tag made with stamps from DesignsbyRyn...

Hello bloggers,

I made another tag with the amazing rain drop stamp by DesignsbyRyn. I love how real they look. The tag itself is cut from ledger paper. I used stencils, distress markers and the spritzer by Tim Holtz to create the background. The umbrella man I cut from a piece of acetate with the steel rol die also by Tim Holtz. I inked it with black and silver alcohol ink. I stuck it on the tag and wrote the sentiment. I then stamped the rain drops on the tag and coloured them in with watered down evergreen bough distress ink and a waterbrush. I adore those droplet stamps. Cannot wait to order more. The edge of the tag I inked with walnut stain distress ink. As the finishing touch I added highights to the droplets with a white gel pen.

Until next time....take care.

Designsbyryn take two

Dear fellow crafters,

Again I was inspired by a stamp I received a short while ago by DesignsbyRyn. I just love these droplet stamps. The tags just create themselves.

As the one I did in the previous post, I inked the tag using the wrinkle free distress technique by Tim Holtz and stamped the droplets and coloured them in with tumbled glass distress ink. Then  watered it down with a water brush. I highlighted the droplets with a white gel pen and stamped the sentiment. These stamps are so intricate and detailed that nothing else is needed. In this case....less is absolutely more....

Well until next time...take care
