Guest Design Team Member : SHANNA SHANDS!

Today we have Guest member Shanna Shands joining us with two superb tags! First let's meet Shanna : 

Hi everyone. My name is Shanna and I am super excited to be a guest this month. I love all types of styles of colors and crafting and find VLVS perfect to fit any theme for anyone. I am very thankful and decided to have some fun with my stamps this month.


And now onto her super fun tags!


For my first guest post I created some tags. I played with some Dylusions sprays and a stencil with some 3D Matte Gel. I stamped the image and sentiment from the plate numbered 1436, cut them out and added some cardboard underneath the image to give it some dimension. I then colored in some of the bubbles from the stencil with Picket Fence Distress Paint to make bubbles stand out after I circled them and smudged a black PITT pen around the edges for shading. The sentiment was added down and smudged wight eh PITT pen too. I used a different stencil with some black distress ink to add more circles. I happened to have a little bit of fun trim that I think went perfectly with the underwater theme tag. 


For my second tag I had just got some Dina Wakely paints and went to town on this tag with that. I smeared on the pink and yellow paint. Once dry I added some 3d Gel with a stencil and dried it. I stamped the image and sentiment from the plate numbered 1436, cut them out and added some cardboard underneath to give dimension. This tag I added some glass glitter too for extra bling. I finished this tag off with some seam binding ribbon that matched the paints I used on the tag. 


I did add some black india ink splatter to both tags. I love splatter. I can't wait to share my next creation with you. Now go get some stamps and start creating!
