Set of three tags

I was lucky enough to be invited as a guest designer at Rubber Dance Stamps, and I thought I'd make something clean and simple. I like CaS both because it's relatively quick to make, and that the simplicity of it makes it classy. It is also safe for beginners.
I ended up with making a set of three tags, where I've mainly used stamps from the da Vinci set, plus a few from ATC Backgrounds 1.

First I made a background by sprinkling Brushos on cardstock and misting it with water. I then cut the background into size before I stamped and stuck them to black tags. I really like the contrast the black background gives. Finally I've "framed" each tag by drawing double non-straight lines and some doodling with a thin black pen.

Close ups of each tag:

I hope you feel inspired!

Wishing you a sunny and creative summer.

Christmas in July

Hi all!
It's time for another challenge over at Mixed Media Mojo. The challenge is Christmas in July, with Santa as the twist. 

I made this aj page with minimum supplies, as I was on a trip. All supplies I brought with me were my Inktense pencils, a waterbrush, gluestick, black and white pens and my journals. I bought a magazine and searched for an image fitting the theme. I found a picture of lovely British brick houses - perfect! So I coloured in a stamped image from Stampotique, cut the little fellas out and stuck everything down on my background. I then added the words which I had stamped ready before I left home. 

So here's my page!

Thanks for looking! Be sure to join us at Mixed Media Mojo!
