This tag was number two of a series of 12 tags in the December issue of the Norwegian magazine - "Ett trykk". I wanted to show different styles and techniques. This is an example of Art Journaling and paper piecing.
I have used Tim Holtz Sizzix: Movers & Shapers Base Die - Tag & Bookplates to create the basis for the tag. To create the background, I used Dylusions spray – Postbox red, squeezed orange and Cherry Pie. Heidi Swap – Color shine – Chartreuse. Then I stamped with Penny Black: Winter Scroll and Inkadinkado; Christmas Holiday sentiments and Christmas tree. I made the white effects by using a white pen.
The teddy is a free digital stamp from Dustin Pike, coloured with promarkers. The underwear has been made with paper piecing. Paper piecing is a technique where you stamp the image onto several different papers, cut the different pieces out and glue them together to create the image. On this teddy, the underwear was printed onto blue card stock, cut out and glued onto the coloured teddy.
