As you can tell with this tag, I love bright colors! Not only in my art work but in my life Turquoise and pink are two of my favorite colors! (I even have a guest bedroom filled with these two colors) Orange, purple and green are on the top of my list of favs as well. What I love about this tag is that although there are many layers on this tag, the true star is Rita’s Art Foamies Cowboy Boot stamp! After making the tag, I grabbed a piece of left over painted paper that I knew would make the boots pop. A brayer can be used to add a layer of acrylic white paint right on the cowboy boot. Firmly stamp it on the paper. Repeat this step to make a second boot image. After they are dry you can cut them out.
I adhered the boots onto the tag, then grabbed another piece of left over painted paper and used a star punch to punch out several stars (who doesn’t think stars go with cowboy boots?!). I then attached the stars to the tag.
I finished this fun and lively tag with a Tim Holtz chipboard phrase “Adventure Awaits” and added various colors of seam binding as ribbon to the top of the tag. When I think of cowboy boots, I think adventure. These Rita Barakat Art Foamies Cowboy Boots are made for walking right into an incredible adventure. If these boots could take you for an adventure, where would they take you?
I would love to know in the comments below!
