Basic Grey Flourish Stamp Tags


Two tags made with some flourish/swirl type stamps from Basic Grey.

The main images were stamped in black versafine then masked. Both tags were coloured with distress ink pads applied with cut'n'dry foam and flicked with water drops, which were allowed to dry. The flourishes were stamped stamped in black versafine and a waterbrush was used with distress pads to colour them. Finally they were distressed around the edges with a fine application of distress ink (walnut stain).

I hope you like em! Click on a tag to see a larger view :o)

Wonderful tags Dan. I've had rub-ons of those designs but didn't realise they came as stamps too. Loved the rub ons, but once they're gone, they're gone - a stamp can be used over and over again.

By the way, you won't recognise my ID - Jane/lapsapchung here!
