Apple Tag, Stamped, Thank You

With the end of the final school term fast approaching, I realised I needed to make one final apple tag for a man...  So this seemed like the perfect excuse to try out the apple from my newly acquired Stampers Anonymous Schoolhouse Mini stamp set :)

As I've also been wanting to try out a very quick and simple technique I read about many months ago that involves scribbling onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and then stamping onto card, I've combined the two into one.  Trouble is...  I couldn't decide on what kind of card I wanted to stamp onto, so I've ended up with two tags (other shown on the next post)...  both very different despite their similarities.

I've used a Tsukineko (Memento) 'Lady Bug' and Stampin' Up 'Gumball Green' Marker Pen for my apple colour combination and paired that with the 'Thank You' punch by Martha Stewart.  Can you see that I've layered a black layer over white to create a shadow effect?

I wanted more black in this design, so I added a plain black second tag (with a second white layer glued behind for writing on) and some black and white twine.

Quick to make...  and it will look good tied around a bottle of Whiskey for my daughter's SENCO :)

I'm also adding this tag to the current Tag You're It challenge.

'Bye for now...

      Thanks for commenting. X

  2. What a fun way to incorporate the apple, thanks so much for playing along with us at Tag You're It Challenge.

    1. I like stamps... but I don't like to colour them!
      This way I get colour without the hard work :)
