Paper craft project no. 486: Love



Hey! Sharing a card for the first day of Love TAGplorations over at the STAMPlorations blog. From today up until Valentine's day, you'll find the STAMPlorations girls sharing projects with tags in them. There are plenty of prizes for those who visit the participating designers' blogs and leave comments along the way. Then there are prizes too (new stamps and dies!) for those who party with us and link up their own Valentine's day projects.

For my project, I inked up my favorite stamp (Large Narcissus) with a black Tombow marker, spritzed it with a bit of water, and stamped on my card base (Strathmore acrylic paper -- it has a wonderful texture). Then I  took a waterbrush and ran it over the stamped image that I was going to die-cut my tag out of. I used the smallest luggage tag die to die-cut the tag and then I inked the edges of the tag with HA neon pink. Placed a small piece of card stock on the back of the card front before adhering the tag back in place with foam tape. Oh yeah, I added some black splatters to the card base before doing that. Then I die-cut love three times on white card stock, sponged HA neon pink on one of them, and then stacked and adhered the thing. Finished the card with dark pink twine. 

I'm the last stop in the hop -- for today :o) Hope the team and I have inspired you to create a project or two that you can link up to the Love TAGplorations gallery. The link up is open until Valentine's day so get to it! ;o)


Linking up my card to the following fun challenges:
Take It, Make It Challenge 


Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
