Two Tag Tuesday ~ Inspired by Vera Lane Studio images
Hi everyone! Did you like that tongue twisting title? Am I stuck on the letter T today? I have no idea why alliteration strikes me as funny but it does. It might be because it's fun to say. I don't know but I accepted that fact long ago and I just roll with it:) Last Week, and this week, Vera Lane Studio released another two sets of awesome images calling out to be coloured. I created a tag for each: Catgirl and Skulldoos. I love them both so much!
I coloured the images with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cut them leaving a narrow white border, and matted them leaving a narrow black border. All three were popped up on foam tape to add dimension and natural shadow.
The background for CatGirl (why do I keep hearing the Batman theme??) was a Joggles watercolour tag which I sprized with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Spray and then added colour to with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink. The cat paws were added with a Kaisercraft stencil and Jet Black Archival and the text and grid stamps with Library Green Archival. Washi Tape over white cardstock created a ground line and pink puffy hearts picked up her hair colour. The tag was lined with black pen, edged with black Big Brush pen, and double matted with pink and black cardstock.
The background for Skulldoos and her chihuahua was a piece of text printed patterned paper cut into a tag shape and edged with Coffee Archival Ink and black Big Brush Pen. Across the bottom, purple designer paper matted with black was layered under orange dp, also matted with black. Across the top, a curvy border was adhered to keep the eyes on the tag instead of drifting off to who knows where. A simple border was doodled around the outside edges.
The text on CatGirl comes with the image set and the text on the Skulldoos tag was computer generated. Both were matted with black cardstock and popped up on foam tape. Simple ribbons coordinating with the tag colours became the toppers to finish them off.
