Carabelle Studios Pug Dog Mixed Media Tag


For my last week in the Designer Spotlight with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we have a theme of Pets Corner.  I've created a mixed media tag with some fabulous new Carabelle Studios stamps.


What a joy it has been to create alongside this fabulous design team!  Thanks again Simon Says Stamp for the invitation.  



For my tag background, I embossed the beautiful Carabelle Manusript Pen stamp in white.  I then dipped the tag in a mixture of watery Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap inks.  I love how the ink puddled in between the text.


I stamped the Watercolor Hearts onto inky paper with Fired Brick and clear embossed.  I layered with glittered black washi, burlap paper, and Tissue Tape.  The sentiment is from the Occasions Small Talk sticker pack.


I stamped the dog from the Carabelle To Be or Not To Be stamp set onto inky paper.  I gave a few highlights on with a white galaxy marker.  I layered him over a die cut label from the Tim Holtz label set.  The flower was cut from dotty fabric using the Tattered Florals Bigz die.  I used glue to scrunch it up and adhere it to my tag.


I hope you will be inspired to share your pet themed project for a chance to win a $50 Simon Says Stamp gift voucher!  Thanks again for your encouragement, visits and comments this month!  I truly appreciate you!

Wow Autumn this is such a stunning tag - love that cute pooch face, and I thought the spotted flower was actually a bow tie at first glance.
