I am soooooo in love with my tags! I created these yesterday and I was really happy with them. I am usually my own worst critic, so trust me, arrogance is not me :) I think I really liked them when they were done because of the light aqua with the brown. That's one of my fave color combos right now. What's yours? Somebody was mentioning that GAP has a summer collection out and that's their fave color palette right now. I guess I will have to google that as the closest GAP store is about an hour away, and the last time I was in that general area, I had both the kids with me, alone, and they were hungry. Therefor, there was no way I was going shopping! lol. So here are my tags.....
These measure about 2 inches by 3 inches. They are handstamped with a sepia ink and teal. I use staz-on ink. I love that ink for making the ribbon/trim too that I hand stamp. It is permanent. I then prestrung them with a thinner jute twine. They are blank white on the back, which is nice if you are going to use these as gift wrap, labels, etc. I rounded the tops with my corner rounder and then hand aged the edges with coordinating ink.
I love these too! With these, I took khaki material, hand torn/frayed it, it's on the thinner side (maybe a half an inch) and then stamped the background with seashells. I tried to have them look a "little" faded, just to continue the vintage look. I then stamped them with the text "Sea Breeze" in teal. These also measure about 2 inches by 3 inches. (approx. I have all the details with them listed on etsy).
Happy Tagmaking! :)
