The tag of the month for July at Art For The Creative Mind is Black and White. Not sure if this was meant to be literal or figurative but I went for the literal as I am very drawn to strong contrast. Like usual, when I have to create two of something they are usually vastly different.
The Artist Within
Created on a white tag masked and stamped all over with a text stamp in black. I then removed the mask and stamped the Artist stamp and embossed with black. I set three black eyelets along the bottom and added beads and lalique disks. A white paper flower and an over-sized comma finish it off.
The C Family tag
This tag is not actually "white" but more cream (gee, I hope that is okay). Anyway, my partner's last name begins with a C so this one is personalized just for her.
I used a lovely paper that I reused from a presentation folder. I stamped the background with Tapestry Background stamp and embossed with Black Soot Distressed powder. Next I applied adhesive ribbon to the top and bottom of the tag. I used my Cricut machine and the Heritage set to cut out the C. A Family snap on ribbon finishes it off.
