Hello fellow Crafters,

Over at the Lost Coast Designs Blog the challenge for this month is 'Girls, Girls, Girls'. As an inspiration piece for you I have made this tag :

For this tag I used a piece of gelli print which I cut into a tag shape. Next I adhered the circles. These are finger painted circles that I made a while ago. I then randomly stamped the background. I also took my black Archival ink pad and rubbed it around the edges of the tag. Next  I stamped the ballerina's on tissue paper and clear embossed them. I did that because I used Versafine ink to stamp and this ink takes an age to dry.
I adhered the tissue paper to the tag with gel medium and added a few bits of washi tape. 
The sentiment was made with a Dymo labeler and the last thing I did was add some ribbon through the hole. 

I used the following stamps

Two ballerinas
Perspective floor
Magic Dictionary

  2. Beautiful tag, corrie, loving that gelli print background :)

  3. Oeh....deze tag spreekt me enorm aan Corrie...lekker artistiek en dan die enorm leuke stempel van de ballerina's erbij...heerlijk met die geweldige kleurencombi!
    Fijne dag verder, Alie :-)

  4. If I had the ballerinas stamp them knowing me I would have gone down the vintage/shabby chic route. I like that you used this stamp with a bold background and it is fabulous, has such a freshness to the design.
    Corrie, thank you so much for your encouraging words about my "journey" into the world of colour. You have been so supportive.

  5. Love that tissue paper technique, Corrie, and your tag is just magical! You have perfectly used the ballerinas stamp, and your color is spot on!

  6. Prachtige tag, schitterend van kleur en wat een mooie stempel!!

  7. Wonderful tag Corrie, the colours are really perfect with this beautiful stamp, gorgeous atmosphere!! Hugs, Coco x
