Good morning my Friends,
I want to let you all know that the next round of swapping at Ike’s Art Fan Page on Facebook has been posted for sign-ups. I host a monthly Tag and ATC swap. I do this “Round Robin” style which means you only have to make ONE TAG and/or ONE ATC.
So your not making tons of Tags and ATCs but you still get a piece of someone’s beautiful art work. And all of the Tags and ATCs have been wonderful!
This round the Tag theme is “Punch Drunk” use punches on your Tag! Must have an Ike’s Art image visible.
The ATC theme is “Mother’s Day” interpret as you wish.
Here are mine:
I have used the digi image called “Mermaid” from Ike’s Art. (Follow the link to get yours.) I colored her with Copics. Then added glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle, I used the colors “Neon Flamingo,” “Lacy Lilac,” and on the hair piece I used “Spirited Green.” Then a half pearl from Stampin’ Up! I printed the image out twice, one a little bit larger, from the larger image I fussy cut the sea sprig, and added it back to her hair.
For the back ground of the Tag, I used various Dylusions spray inks . Then using the stamp set “By the Tide” from SU I stamped w/ black Versamark, the coral, fish, and the seahorses, randomly.
I stamped the sentiment from the SU set “Just Believe” onto scratch SU DSP then used a Stampin’ Up! punch. Used the same punch and punched out a backing for it using a scratch piece of Gelli Print paper.
I really do like this image from Ike’s Art. She can be made to look so many different ways. You will be seeing more of her from me because I have lots of ideas on “doing” her up!!
So there ya go a little bit of inspiration for the “Punch Drunk” Tag swap! Do you like my Tag?
Here is my “Mother’s Day” themed ATC:
I have used an image from Ike. She is called “Black Widow” and you can find her HERE!
I colored the entire ATC with Copics. I used a tiny punch for the baby spiders.
The senti is from Stampin’ Up!
