It's More New Rubber

With this tag I have used some more of my new stash from last weekend and the stamps that arrived this week.  The base colour on the tag is Wild Honey, which I used for the WV splatter stamp (not sure if that's it's right name) from an existing set.  I used a scrap piece of watercolour paper for the bottle and label, and a light covering of Wild Honey. (sounds like I'm spreading toast!)

I embossed a piece of TSS metal with the FAB cogs mold and added some of the new Viva Inka-Gold paste in green - it has a great shimmer in the tub!  Luckily it cleans off your fingers easily with water as it stains at the time.  I had a small grunge flower just the right shape and size to fit in on the gaps between the cogs at the top of the metal, and covered it in the Inka Gold.  I can't remember enough of my O level German (which in itself tells you how long ago that was!!), to undestand how they recommend using it, the only word I recognise on the label, is "Holtz"!!

I finished it with a splash of rock candy crackle paint on the label and "art" which was also on watercolour paper smooshed with Wild Honey.

Still have plenty of the stamps to try out from the two WV sets, so hope I get time to play more at the weekend.  If it's not raining in the morning (there is a chance), I'm going to Kew with the camera (need to get the film finished ready for next week's WOYWW as have been inside my drawers for you all.)
