...teehee.... nighttime sure does seem to be a playtime for me. As soon as the moon is up, I come alive, my Mojo starts zinging and I get all painty and inky in the Room of Stash. I think I was a wampire in a previous life! Anyways, last night I got all painty with some Fresco Finish paints, using a brayer to slap the paint onto the tag... am rather chuffed that I finally listened to my BFF Ellen, who has been saying for 462 years that I should try a brayer! Well, I am always slow on the uptake! Here's the finished tag....
And here it is before I decorated it. Check out the stamping - that is using one of the gorgeous stamps from Wendy's Art Comforts stamp set, stamped first in Tree Branch, which is one of Wendy's new Signature Archival Inks... and then stamped again in Jet Black so I got a nice shadowy effect. The texture is using Grungepaste mixed with a smidge of Little Black Dress paint and then spread through the Bingo stencil. BTW, the colours I used for the background are: Butternut, Smoked Paprika, London Bus and Claret with a smidge of Squid Ink.
Apologies for the rubbish photography, I couldn't get this one focussed for some reason. Once I had the background done, I wanted to add some flowers (yip, for a change!) so I grabbed some gorgeous Kaisercraft blooms and hey ho, they are the right colours so no needs for colouring... those were popped onto the tag along with a couple of leafy diecuts and some embellies and then I stamped the sentiment onto cream card - this is a gorgeous sentiment isn't it? Another Studio 490 stamp, from Garden Art. I decided to leave the wordy background cream so it really pops off the tag. And there you have it :O))
I had a grand old time getting inky and painty last night and have a few more backgrounds all ready for decorating... who knew the humble brayer was such fun!!! Well, apart from our Ellen right? I shall away now, packing up ready for my travels tomorrow to South Wales for my class at Dandie Craft on Saturday... Thanks for looking, have a great day. TTFN
