These were made with hashing and re-hashing quite a few layers in a mad blur of ink and paint and die shapes. I always start with Strathmore Mixed Media paper if I know things are going to get wet or inky. I cut these tags out, then glued on strips of text paper.
Next I stamped, colored and cut some hexagons using Tim Holtz's Patchwork stamp set. I glued them to the tags, then painted over them with white paint. For the "kind" tag, I added some circle stamping using Tim's Halftone and Rings stamp set and painted again. I followed-up with some patterned paper scraps and a circle with an X in it from Seth Apter's Drip Drop die set. I added a bubble wand shape I drew and made into a stamp. I added a Tim Holtz ruler ribbon number and stamped around it with a cool wonky stitched circle stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Sparkle and Shine. I also added just a few small sketched circles from Simon's Scribble Flowers set. The "kind" sentiment is a Tim Holtz Elementary Flash Card.
For the "hello" tag, after I painted and layered with the patchwork stamp as described above, I added a sprinkle of stars cut with Neat and Tangled's Seeing Stars die set. I added more patterned paper scraps, a bit of text paper, and threw on another bubble wand. I used the same Simon sets as described above and a Tim Holtz "hello" flash card.
