Pretty Pinkfresh Studio Tags

I made a couple of pretty Pinkfresh Studio tags for their latest challenge, and enjoyed using a number of techniques to achieve just the look I wanted.

I started with Pinkfresh’s Coral Reef ink cube on Simon Says stamp’s Modern Rose Blooms background stamp for the backing/framing tags… which I just realized as I was writing this post that they no longer carry. No worries though, there are many background stamps that would work too.

I used a stamp from Pinkfresh’s Folk Hummingbird stamp set for the flowers. Then I colored them in with alcohol markers, heat embossed them and fussy cut them out. (After I was done coloring them but before I fussy cut them out, I put them back in the stamping platform to heat emboss over the coloring.)

I used one of the dies in their Botannical Rectangle die set for the leafy frame that the flowers were arranged around. I used both gold and silver cardstock for them just because I couldn’t decide which would look better. I used colored cardstock to in-lay the leaves. And then it was time to arrange everything and start adhering it down.

I hope that these inspire you to make something new today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

      Hey Karen! Sometimes I go through a phase where I’m putting gold on everything so I made myself consider silver for this project. Thanks so much for coming by!

      Wonderful! I really enjoyed coloring time with these flowers, using my alcohol markers and a little bit of colored pencil for some detail. Thanks so much!!
