Wordsoup, Tags & Pockets with Eileen Hull

Hello! All month our theme for Eileen Hull's team has been Wordsoup, Tags & Pockets. It's been fun seeing all the creative ways the designers have been interpreting it. I decided to make a funny card for my take.

I incorporated words and letters in the background with stamps and diecuts. My sentiment is from the Idea-ology Snarky Small Talk sticker book. (So many funny ones included in that!)

I also used several of Eileen's 3-D Embossing Folders on the tags. (Silverware, Sweater, & Crochet Mandala) The detail and texture you can achieve with these folders is absolutely amazing! A card like this is a great way to use up scraps. I rummaged through my stash of gel prints, inky backgrounds and paper scraps to choose which to make into tags.

Here's a peek at the background:

I also included an Idea-ology Paper Doll figure perched on a tag. You can easily color these fun little dolls. I used Distress Watercolor Pencils this time. You can color directly on the paper and then blend with a waterbrush. You can also briefly dip the tip of the pencil into water to soften it and then swipe color off of it with a paintbrush to load it with "paint".

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to keep an eye on Eileen's blog for more inspiration from the Educator and Inspiration Teams.
