Happy Monday everyone!! I am popping in to share a couple of cute tags. A couple of weeks ago, I got some new stamps sets from Pretty Cute Stamps. One of them was the cute "Happy Hour Faces".
A friend of mine has a birthday today, so I decided to make her a tag. I ended up making 2 of them, coloring is something I am not really good at, there is always a learning curve for me. I learned a few things with these tags. Here they are:
For tag number one, I used the super cute wine glass. My friend is a wine lover, so this seemed an appropriate choice. I colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. She fit perfectly on CDD's Tag Essentials Die. I just love how cute she is.
On to tag number two. My friend LOVES to head south, where the drinks are fun and fruity, so I was torn between this and the wine stamp. I love how cute he turned out! I even blinged up the ice with a little stickle, to make it look frosty, but alas - the learning curve. I stamped and colored the drink with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, before I stamped on the face. I learned, that my ink took a lot longer to dry once it was stamped over gamsol, and ended up smearing the eyes with my finger. ALSO, I learned that while my red marker colored over Gamsol well, the white pen did not. I ended up stamping another face and fussy cutting the eyes. Fussy cutting is a task I despise, so, lesson learned, no more coloring before stamping the face. LOL! Even though his eyes are blurry, and it bothers the perfectionist in me a LOT, I decided to take a picture and share him anyway. He is too cute not to share ;) This time, I used the "Just Tag Die" from My Creative Time.
