Hi everyone, it's Etsuko My favorite things with you today, and I'd like to share with you several tags using new fabulous Elena's mini stamps.

Elena's new release is very humorous characters, so I've mixed her sentiments and Alison's quote on these tags. And I made them with a simple design to eye catch.

At first I used ZN41mini stamp and #5 tag, he seemed very happy and let him fly with many hearts into the sky. I stamped ZN41 by Archival Jet Black then I painted with various watercolor paint once dried I then cut around the image and applied to the tag. Hereafter, each character images repeated the same process. Alison's EAB03 quote is lovely on this. 

The background was colored Niagara Falls Fresco using Jofy's PS165 stencil on Seaglass. Then I adding mixed Buff and Snowflake Fresco by Kim's PS034 stencil. So sorry Seaglass and Buff look whitish and their true colors are hard to see.

Secondly, ZA23 is lovely making for someone's birthday.

The background was painted with Seaglass and using Grunge paste with PS034 stencil then sanded once it dried. I splattered Niagara Falls and Snowflake to the finish.

A fairy with a big face is muttering on the cake stand. Using ZN46.

I painted #8 tag with Sage Fresco then I used PS111 stencil with Buff, but the contrast was little strong, so I did a white wash by Snowflake. Once it dried I made EAB14 Alison's quote and ZN46 image applied to the tag.

Alison's quotes evoke various ideas, this time I applied to this image. Using EAB14.


I brayered Lemon Meringue and Snowflake Fresco then I stamped HPXT01 by Elephant, These HPXT05 bike and sentiment embossed by Baked Texture and some black powder. I made the ZN45 image in the same process and applied it to the tag.

Finally I made ZN47 image with different idea I did papers collage and many layers.

I didn't work with male characters so much and I took a little time, but while doing it gets interesting and I want to take on the challenge again. Hope you enjoy it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.

These are such fun, Etsuko - each one so individual, full of character, and just the right word choices to go with each of them.
