Dictionary, Distress oxide ink, Everything Eleanor, Finnabair, Masks/Stencils

Tag swap for UK stampers forum

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.

Happy crafting!
