Shar has me started on the clean and simple look. Over at her Rogue Redhead Designs blog, her most recent challenge, Rebel Challenge #13 Distressed Greens, is to use the color green and some distressing (along with stamping)
Voila! Here are a couple of gift tags for wedding presents. This little Studio G wedding cake stamp that I picked up at our recent Prairie Stampers Club garage sale came in very handy. (Unfortunately I didn't use a RRD stamp for this little project. But while visiting the RRD site, I did purchase her latest release, Nature Notes, and can't wait to get the plate!)
The wedding invitation used mossy green paper and brown grosgrain ribbon. I found matching green ribbon (which turned out to be the color of the bridesmaids' dresses) and then searched for some brown wrapping paper for the gifts. My little gift tags followed the theme.
My distressing is with ink, using a green Studio G chalk to edge the card as well as some Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and Tea Dye. On one of the tags, I also used my distress blade to rough up the edges.
Image is stamped with Archival Ink in sepia and colored with Copics E37 sepia and YG03 yellow green.
Keeping it clean and simple, one card is stamped and folded, then glued onto a brown square. The other is layered into a traditional card. I punched a hole in each tag and attached them to the gifts with the brown ribbon from the wedding invitation.
