I've removed the monogram on this one to highlight the watercolor but still keep the name and image as one unit. I felt like the other was competing too much. I created a second, entirely different design with the monogram text that I like much better called Elegant tag.

I like the changes you made and that the pretty stripes really stand out now. I like the new design too!

Stacey, I love the watercolor at the top only. but I keep getting hung up on the type. I am just not a fan of the shadowed typeface and serif underneath, sorry, I keep seeing circus. I'd love to see a sans, but you and Jen must be on the same wavelength, I'd defer to her judgement here.

stacy, hope you don't mind me throwing my two cents into the mix. If it were me i'd be tempted to throw out the "S" completely, and leave the name and lines there (either over top the watercolor, or across the bottom). the S distracts from the beautiful watercolor, IMO.

Hey Stacey, I still prefer the original version with the initial letter. I think it has more personality! : )

hmm.. feel like these lack a bit of structure? wonder what the bombshell version would look like with lines around the name or going back to the original seriff font.

This one is a major work in progress. I am not happy with the type yet so if you've got any ideas to help make this better I am all ears.

I really like the type and love the watercolor stripes. I don't think you need the bottom stripes, I think the top part is lovely by itself and will provide more room for a note : )

What about tring a single letter upper right corner, small, and full name across the bottom, no stripes on bottom?

Love this Stacey. I I would like to see what it would look like with Carol's suggestion. Colours and type are fantastic!

Hmm, this is tough! I love both top versions, and I think I still prefer the top left because it's one cohesive unit. I truly love the design!
