Black and White Tags Challenge

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.
