WMS Sneak Peek Day 3 - Eat Cake with a Flourish in a Pretty dress!

Have you been loving the WMS Sneak Peeks so far??!!  Well -  today we have cakes, prom dresses and flourishes - what more could a stamper want I ask you???!!!!  The new sets we are highlighting today are Eat Cake, You're Lovely, and Flourishes - Scallops and Dots

For my projects today I made two tags- using plain old oaktag shipping tags from Staples!
For this tag -  I stamped a flourish from Flourishes - Scallops and Dots on the tag using white pigment ink and let it dry.  Then I sponged Old Paper and Milled Lavender dye inks all over the tag which made the flourish show up lightly in the background (do you see it?).  Then I stamped the cake and the lovely icing and larger draping  from Eat Cake and added some bling.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from yesterdays peek, Big Day Additions, sponged it, cut around it and layered it over the tag with foam tape.

My second tag is all about the prom with flourishes, sparkles and a pretty dress!

I used the same process for the flourish and sponging on the tag.  The flower, sentiment and dress are from You're Lovely and the flouishes are from Flourishes - Scallops and Dots.  I stamped the dress on white, sponged it, cut it out and layered it over the tag.

Now let's go see what the rest of the DT has for us today!     Be sure to come by tomorrow for the Design  Team Blog Waltz when all these wonderful new stamps will be available to purchase at Waltzingmouse!

Julia, your two tags are very beautiful. I like how you created the background and I also very much like the colours used on both tags. On the dress I very much like the flourish.

Kind regards

Your tags are beautiful! I love both of them equally and could not choose one over the other if I had to. Your sponging is flawless. Love the look it gave the first tag. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
