Sisters By Choice

I feel we're more like sisters than friends.

This fortnights tag challenge is to use the color black and stencils.  And of course, one real stamp.


Donna of Inky & Quirky sent me a few tags on which she created some background starts on one side of the tags.  This is one of those tags.  She painted the glistening green and stenciled black squares.  I first adhered her tag to mat board.  I then stenciled some darker black squares over the originals and I stenciled the while letters and numbers.  I added washi tape, stamped the girls on separate cardstock, cut them out and adhered them to the tag with pop dots.  

The back is inked, stamped and washi taped.


Thanks Donna for the great tag start!  

DragonsDream Tag It On hosts this tag challenge every two weeks.

Sometimes you really tempt me to spend some of my fabric money on stamps, then I remember how my craft room used to look before I started paring things down! Love what you do. :)

I always like the way you use stamps, you make them more like painting than stamping. These are lovely subtle colours you have used here.
