Tag Tuesday Challenge #9 -- Magazine Inspiration


I've done this a few times with the perfume bottle images I found in magazines. I just love to use them as an inspiration point. I also found a gorgeous blue butterfly background, so I incorporated both of them into today's tag. I stamped my image inside the perfume bottle. A little scary, I was afraid it wouldn't come out centered and I'd ruin the only one I had. I turned the stamp upside down and laid my paper on top of it and pressed down with an acrylic block. It came out perfectly. I then colored the perfume bottle in with a Copic marker.
Which gave me the idea for this week's challenge: Use something you find in a magazine to create your tag. It's as easy as that! Link back here and let me see what you've come up with!

If the top of the instrument seems torn, it is. Magazine pages are so delicate! Thanks for the challenge!
