Chalky Pigments

On Wendy's blog today she has a tutorial using Ranger pigment inks and Perfect Pearls that result in a chalky look with bling. Instead of using Red Pepper and Denim pigments inks I used Butterscotch and Eggplant. I don't have her new stamps yet (boo hoo!) so I used some of her others to create a similar tag.

Now that I'm seeing the tag on my screen the flowers look a bit small compared to the size of my leaves and heart - oh well. I used a snap instead of a threaded button for the flower center and added one of Tim's keys to balance out the tag.

Computer issues on both the desktop and laptop have kept us hopping today and very frustrated. I think making art helped me calm down while the issues were being resolved. Maybe now I can get back into my stamp room and get down to business.


  1. Lovely! I'm pining for the new stamps too!

  2. Susan, I love it, your tag is gorgeous, the flower may be small but it's very pretty, and cutting around the leaf stamp works beautifully. tfs

  3. Very pretty, Susan! I, too, can't wait to have Wendy's new stamps in my li'l hands!
    I'm glad art helped you find a calm place .. that's my plan this evening. ;o)

  4. Love the way you stamp the stamps in different directions, i.e. the arrow stamp. Why can't I think of that??? This is gorgeous, the color choice is awesome!

  5. Stunning is the perfect word to describe this gorgeous tag...fab fab your take on the tut by Wendy :O))
