Housewife tag

I made this tag for my ATC trade partner, over at the Vera Lane Studios facebook group :

This tag features one of The Housewives :

The background is acrylic paints, then I used whipped spackle through a stencil and while it was wet I sprinkled on some Stampendous gold glass glitter. The housewife is colored with copics and the wording 'Capture Life' is from another Vera Lane Studios set called The Photographer. 
Finally I drew around the edge and added some fabric to the tag top :) 

Thanks for stopping by, I think there is something for everyone over at Vera Lane Studios, go check it out :)

See Ya

I do enjoy making tags, I also enjoy a little humor, the two are combined here :
The idea for the wording of 'See ya' came from the hand-wing. It reminds me of when people do that dismissive behind their back wave as they walk away.  'See ya' is a farewell.

I have used a TH manilla tag #8, blue acrylic paint watered down and applied in random strokes. When it was dry I went over it with spiced marmalade distress stain. It now looks green, isn't that awesome. I used the fourth dimension stamp from Lost Coast Designs for the floor and I added a little of the stamp detail all over the tag. Then some whipped spackel through a stencil. I made a separate tag and did the same background, but I stamped it with the licence plate alphabet from Lost Coast Designs and cut out the individual letters.

The gorgeous gal you see here is from the Doodle dolls 1 set also from Lost Coast Designs. She is stamped in stazon, colored with Neocolor 2's and markers. I added some white detail to her dress and stamped and embossed her crown in gold. I also embossed the edges of the tag in gold and added some gold sequins and twine.

Hope you found some inspiration here, thanks for stopping by x
