Hello everyone! It's guest designer Ashley here again, and today I am sharing two coordinating tags I made with the Travel stamp set and the Beach stamp set. These stamps remind me of vintage, muted, kind of messy things so I tried my hand at something not normally my style.
For my first tag, I used a mask + misting on the background. The beautiful blue mist reminded me of the ocean. I stamped the sea shell stamps on the tag and heat embossed them with gold. Then I used a navy ink to stamp the sentiment a few times on a piece of patterned paper. I misted with gold and then cut it out in bits and pieces. Of course I heat embossed around the edges of my card with metallic blue embossing powder.
For my next tag, I wanted it to coordinate with the vintage/travel theme but not be too matchy matchy. So for this one I blended distress ink for the background. I used walnut stain + antique linen distress inks which blend so beautifully and I think make the perfect combo for an antiqued finish. Then I used white embossing powder on the stamp with the man standing on the shoreline and I stamped the sentiment with StazOn ink. I stamped the compass with the same walnut stain ink and added a pop dot. For the 'Carte Postal' stamp I used the stamping off technique where you ink up your stamp and then stamp off on a scrap piece of paper. Without re-inking, you stamp again on your project. It creates a more subtle effect.
I hope you've enjoyed these projects! Thanks so much Bibi for allowing me to work with your beautiful stamps!
