CAN YOU CASE IT #88 Challenge, Designers Choice Edition, SURVIVOR Tag

Greetings Everyone!  When I went to the Adventure in Stamping Conveniton in Akron, Ohio, this past April 2015, I saw these amazing mixed media tags at the Stampers Anonymous booth.  I did not take physical pictures of these beauties, but I took mental ones knowing I wanted to give it a go one day.  Thus for this week's challenge since it is Designers Choice over at CYCI I am sharing my spin on these tags.

First you need a giant #12 size manila tag (Ranger).  They are mega; they measure 5 1/8" x 10 1/2".  I painted the tag in dylusions lemon zest paint (Ranger).  I stamped the woman (Ranger-dylusons) in a black mixed media ink (Tsukineko).  I painted her with dylusions bubblegum pink ink spray (Ranger).  Her neck and shirt were colored using colored pencils.  The word hope is from the soliloquy stencil (Art Anthology).  It was stenciled with dylusions cut grass paint (Ranger).  The raindrops (Prima) were stenciled with a mixture of modeling paste (Liquitex) and a pink gelato (Faber Castell).  The bottom of the tag was stamped with a background stamp called wasted (Technique Junkies).  The sentiment and definition are from a Unity Stamp Co. set called Brave Girl.  The black circle stamp is from a Unity Stamp Co. SMAK Kit from November 2014 called Trust Your Soul.  The amazing floral stamps are Prima.  They were colored with Tim Holtz markers, mowed lawn and salty ocean.

I really enjoyed creating this tag.  Make sure you check out the rest of the design team over at CYCI.  We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Peace and love in crafting,
