Stampotique Designers Challenge


I really need to get some more of these Stampotique stamps, I really love them and I keep using the same ones over and over haha!! 
Anyway, for this Stampotique Designer Challenge the theme is Red, Pink and White. 
I initially went into my craft room today to play with my new Gelli plate (it's my new love - next to the new Tim Holtz paints)
and I decided to play with acrylic paint, stencils and paper and all kinds of fun things. I ended up creating a wonderful red background with so much texture. I decided to use it for the base of my tag. 
I colored my girl with Tim Holtz distress markers and also my skeleton men. I used Tim's movers and shapers heart die to cut out the white and pink hearts and I free-handed the red heart and cut it myself. I need that one to be bigger so it would cover up the guys. I used a lid to make the white circles and added a bit of black soot distress ink and stenciling. 
For the ribbon I used Barn Door distress stain to add some color and then I stamped it with an old Stampin Up background stamp that I had. 
Here are some close ups of the tag.




I hope you enjoyed the tag, I must run and get some dinner going. Hubby is going to think I'm on strike!! haha!
