So why not attach an award to her gift! It was a quick "not so little" tag that I put together and will attach to her gift.
The number one car pool award!
I took a ranger size 10 tag and spread some gesso on it for texture, dried it a bit and the used dylusions sprays to give it color and life! I had some black chip board that said No. 1 and had a little car with wheels. But who wants boring black? I went ahead and used Claudia Hellmuth Pastel Yellow paint to lighten up the car. The car needed to stand out so I found some chipboard that had resist in it.. and sprayed that with some yummy purple dylusions! I love the pop! I also dripped some of the extra spray on the tag to tie it all together.
I know I can't possibly be the only one who has TONS of random letters. Some letters just are NOT used as much. And to tell you the truth, I LOVE the look of mixed fonts. They were all different colors and textures of chipboard and metal and I went ahead and used some green Mica on all of them to get them to the same color family and make them a bit more cohesive. I thought it worked out well with still looking a bit mismatched.
The car and the frame were getting a bit lost so I went ahead and edged the tag and the resist board with some distressed ink mini, and then used a neocolor II crayon to sort of outline the car and give that a bit more definition.
Hopefully the sentiment comes across to someone who I have counted on all year and who I want to know that I appreciate.
Have fun and create,
