Tags...some to sell, some to trade

 I'm making some tags to sell at the shop, and some to trade with other artists. I started with plain shipping tags from an office supply store. Then I used the gelli plate to print them up with color and pattern. I used fluid acrylics to print these, and I like how easy it was to ink over without clogging the pen.

Next I added some rather bold stenciling using black and punchinella. I have a stamp I carved in the shape of a highway sign, and I stamped that on, and also used the stamp pad to ink the edges of the tags black.

After a little inking to add the 66 and the word "route" and some doodling, they are pretty much done. Some are to trade, so I left some of them plainer so that those artists can add what they please to them.
