Pirouette Valentine Art Tags

By Chris CS Designs

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I wanted to share this classy  art tag made with Pirouette who is one of the quirky dancers from my Express Yourself Series.  I just love her outfit and wish I had one just like it, especially those pants. This tag is not as colorful as most of my art tags but love the color combinations. Instead of coloring with my usual Prismacolors, I used Sharpie markers. There do not come in many colors that I know of but the colors are very deep and make a great contrast for the rest of the elements. The arty text background is one of my new digital designs from my Digital Engravings Background series, I am finding that I myself like using these more and more. The fibers are made from Crochet cotton and metallic embroidery floss. The little silver heart hanging from the top is one of a package I found at a dollar store. The grey corner scroll was cut on my Silhouette Digital Cutter.

Another Valentine Tag made with the whimsical Pirouette. This time I used a postage stamp design with a caption that best suites her personality.

Pirouette has been colored with Sharpie markers. The background script is my "How do I love Thee" Background is from my Digital Engravings series. To make the edges resemble more of a stamp, I punched the notches out with my small hand held round punch and then used the direct to paper technique around the edges to give it a little more color.

 The silver heart is from a package of heart charms I bought at a dollar store. I added a Red Heart brad over the dangling heard she is holding. I finished the whole thing off with some red and peach satin ribbon.
