Skull Shadow Tags

Hello! Wow we are spoiling you here on the blog today!! We are snowed in here so what better way to spend a Saturday than catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration that we haven’t shared here yet!!  

Veerle Moreels is up next with 2 awesome tags…


I went and had some relaxing fun with the ‘Skull Shadow’ stencil.

So first I started out using my Inktense pencils and some watercolors. Just by tracing the stencil and having some fun coloring I ended up with this very simple tag.
But yet.. I love how it turned out.





And then I wondered how it would look in a more mixed media version… So I layed down some texture in the stencil. And it might not be really very easy to see, but I have cut out the eye and the nose… I wanted some depth in those holes.


And again… just pure relaxation and having fun. The same stencil but a completely different result…

Fragile

Good Morning! We have some amazing inspiration coming your way today!

First up on the blog today is Lisa Taggart sharing a stunning tag…


I’m back today sharing a mixed media tag made using the Skull Shadow stencil and some of the new stamps from Visible Image.



Stamps used:


How Fragile


Organics



For this project I also used : An mdf tag; Sheena stamping card; ink sprays in teal, green and metallic bronze ; foils in teal and copper; pebeo foiling gel; black embossing powder; versamark ink; Amsterdam black and white acrylic pens; copper wire ;complimentary ribbons; metal gears and irredescent pink gem.

To begin I lined the tag with the stamping card. This was then sprayed randomly using the sprays. Rather than spray through the stencil I decided to spray green ink on to the stencil and use like a stamp to create the skull impression. I did this a couple of times so the skull shape stood out from the background. I also highlighted the shape using black and white pens and did a little shading around the edges using brown ink.

The focal point is the eye. I heat embossed in black the cracked glass stamp over the eye socket. Using the gel adhesive I highlighted some areas around the crack, splinters and the teeth. When clear I cold foiled using copper foil. I also added some white highlights.

I decided to add the metal gears and gem.

Using the organics stamp set I selected a couple of elements and like before stamped in black. This time I foiled on top using teal foil. I also wound some wire around the bottom and along the side of the tag for added texture.

I stamped the ‘fragile’ sentiment onto inked card and added some white highlights . I wound more wire through the hole at the top of the tag along with some ribbon.
