Tag for UK Stampers Forum

Today I have the tag I made for this month’s swap at UK stampers forum… because guess what… I’ve been creating again! After what felt like forever I have finally got back in the craft room and been making stuff! Finally!Anyways… the tag!I started with lots of off cuts of papers I had lying on the desk and started creating the background on this large Art by Marlene tag from the stash.Once I had covered the tag I then scraped over some white gesso and let it dry. I then added some flicks of Dylusions inks in blue and teal and edged it with teal ink.I also did a little inking with black archival too to grunge it up some more.The top panel I made using wipe up distress oxide ink from another project using the glossy cardstock to wipe it up. This always creates a fun background.I used a handcarved stamp to add the swirls and a random text stamp to add the writing. I added lots of dark ink around the edge to frame the panel and then glued it in place on the tag.Next I stamped the three Tim Holtz butterflies onto mixed media cardstock and added embossing powder. I didn’t quite get all of them embossed but it was enough to provide some texture to the stamping.I then added distress oxides as a watercolour to the butterflies before cutting them out.I glued them in place and used some pencils to add some more definition around the edge of the panel and the two butterflies floating off the edges.I then added the Tim Holtz sticker sentiment and the ribbon to finish!Super happy with how this turned out.Happy crafting!Catherine
