Pirouette Valentine Art Tags

Pirouette Dancer Valentine digital stamp art tagWith Valentine's Day just around the corner, I wanted to get an early start and created the two Art Tags in this post. Both tags use the quirky Pirouette who is one of  4 Expressive Dancers from my Express Yourself  Digital Stamp Series. 

The main focal point on the tag on the left is simply named Pirouette and she has been colored with  Sharpie markers.

The Collage text background directly below the Pirouette layer is from my new digital background series called Digital Engravings and it has been printed on grey card stock

The 2nd Art Tag also uses a Pirouette design but this time it is a postage stamp styple design. The main focal point for this Art Tag has also been colored with Sharpie Markers and with an appropriate mini sentiment to fit her personality. Direct to paper has bee applied to the edges and the text background is also a new design called How do I Love Thee? and it is from my Digital Engravings digital stamp series.

Both these Art Tags are being featured in the new issue of the Art With No Boundaries Ezine, and you can find more information on how I created both tags in the Ezine.
