Greetings Lost Coast fans. Gail here with a few more details of my Hop Along tag featuring the gorgeous Whimsical Flora
I've also used the Bubbles Background, but I wanted to try and use it in a slightly different way
Here are the three steps for my tag background. I stamped the Bubbles Background at an angle off the edge of the tag using Midnight Blue dye ink. I masked the stamped area and stamped again at a different angle. I decided it was a bit dark so for the final masking and stamping I didn't re-ink the stamp. Ye olde second generation stamping. This obviously gives a lighter impression, which can be fun and useful at times. Then it all became totally irrelevant, cos in the end I decided this was too dark for the image and re-stamped the whole thing with pale turquoise ink! Ho Ho Ho
I stamped the wonderful Flora on a scrap of MME patterned paper. I decided to adjust the angle of her legs and then, since she was then in the hopscotch position, I decided she needed a boot!! It all made perfect sense at the time!! I don't seem to have many boot stamps so I drew a boot shape on a piece on red metal foil with an embossing pen and embossed with black powder. It was a bit bright so I added some black embossed dots. I want a pair of boots like this!!!
So here she is on the slightly paler version of my tag. I've edged and grounded her with the Midnight Blue ink and added a bit of bobbly wool.
