Papertrey Ink - Make it Monday

What fun is this!  #246 Faux Brush Lettering.  You can see how to do this at Make It Monday

This technique is going to be very useful to make your stamping look like you had scripted it yourself.
For this challenge, I simply made a tag, as we often need one to put on a bottle of wine that we would bring to a friend's house.  Nice to have them on hand and I really like how this turned out and it was pretty quick.
 I used my never before used ( NBUS) stamp set and matching die from Papertrey Ink called Uncorked.
For the tag, I used a die from Pretty Pink Posh and made it longer.  Die cut the bottle from silver foil paper and stamped over with StazOn Black ink. The word Cheer is stamped with Limeade and then I used Stormy Sea, both PTI, to make the shading. This is a smaller stamp and so I used a round #1 brush.
Finished with a twine and lime green ribbon.  That is it.  Clean and simple, and ready to be put on a wine bottle.   

Here is a close up of the word that I faux brushed.  I think I will be doing this more often. 
Thanks again for stopping in and I do appreciate that you do and the comments that you leave.

  2. This tag came out really well. Looks like you need to use that stamp and die set more often. That's a great idea, and your lettering came out nicely as well. Thanks for sharing
