Angelee & Natalee Tags - Free Download!

As you know, The Angel Company has free paper downloads for your papercrafting projects...they are located on our website's homepage. Did I tell you they were free? Free! That a good word, right? This freebie, Angelee & Natalee Tags, has such a soft look to it and I immediately thought it would look great with the color brown. Here's what I did with it:
First I downloaded the tags. TIP: Since the colors of the tags are on the soft side, I printed them on glossy cardstock instead of a matte cardstock. The ink stays on top of the glossy paper and will be more vibrant looking than if I printed it on matte cardstock (it would absorb the ink lots more!). I cut out the tags.
For this 8x8 sb layout, I added some brown cs with scalloped edges to the left of my background paper.
Tip: To make a "linen" look background (see picture below), I took my Brilliance pearlescent pink inkpad and swiped it on the white cardstock horizontally and then vertically. Sorry the picture is not the best to see the details. Click on picture for close-up view though. You can see the shimmer of the ink a bit better on the corners of the paper. (It looks much better IRL.) I then stamped the rubber stamp image from the "Swirlies" stamp set to complete my background paper.
I proceeded to stamp on the tags. Stamped & colored the "True Beauty" butterflies, added ribbons and a charm . I was then ready to assemble my, very simple, brown and pink butterfly sb layout for the final product: It's your turn, now. Go get your free TAC paper tags download! I'd love to see what you did with yours. Notice the new download next to it....paper dolls! Gotta try that one too soon.

Thanks for dropping by....may you have a joyous day!
