For the design team’s first challenge we were given free range in our “Use a Digi” Challenge. It’s nice to just get your feet wet sometimes, right? I decided to create a fun and bright altered tag. The digital image that I used is Big Eyed Girl No. 16 if you’re looking for it in the shop. I just love how she looks in her little fuzzy animal suit!
I colored this cute little girl image with watercolors. This was the first time I’d ever used watercolors to fill in a digital stamp but I do like how it turned out. I was able to mix colors to get shades I wanted and do not currently have in my marker collection. For the tag, I used a Heidi Swapp Color Shine tag as my base and sprayed it with Dylusions spray and some Heidi Swap Color Shine mists. I then started adding layers by using stencils and Staz-On ink, lime green acrylic paint, Inka Gold rub, and modeling paste. I even decided to Mod Podge on some gesso-ed scrapbooking paper for another pattern but with a slightly more muted feel. I dressed up the project with some washi tape, a doily, beautiful flowers to match the digi girl’s outfit, and a few brads. I added a few funky ribbons and trims to the top and called it good. I really like how it came together and I’m digging the bright colors! Here are some more close-up photos of the tag so that you can see it in better detail:
