This month there was a new swap arranged for UK stampers … to decorate a tag. I chose to do one of my black tags. Although there is very little black by the end.
Gesso brushed roughly on the tag to provide a good prime for the surface and then added some distress oxide in blues and greens.
I stamped the Dictionary background randomly all over and then the Everything Eleanor swirl. I also added some stencilling with a Paperartsy stencil.
I then grabbed some scraps of paper and added paint and ink and then added it to the tag. Onto this I stencilled the iridescent medium triangles.
The main feature is the heat embossed post & butterfly stamp panel (an old Craft stamper freebie stamp) which I coloured using distress stains. The sentiment is a finnabair one. I did lots of doodling and outlining and then added some fun pieces of trim and ribbon to finish off.
Such fun to make.
