Evening! A bit of a late one for me - but I was suddenly struck by inspiration for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show - A Tag. Well, as you all probably know, I use a lot of tags, so I had to take part this week!!
Anyhow, I have belatedly signed up to follow Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry online course and was rummaging around in one of my drawers of ink pads seeing what was there - and the rest as they say, is history.
I started with Paperartsy Fresco paints - base coat on the tag of Inky Pool, covered with crackle glaze and after that dried, a layer of Honeydew for the crackles - I still think it's magic watching this paint crackle so easily.
I added depth with the limited edition distress ink in evergreen bough round the edges of the tag, then sponged the same colour through some sequin waste and used vintage photo round the edges of the tag. Added just the top part of the stamp, inked in black archival, at the bottom of the tag and the text is from a Wendy Vecchi set. Added a row of flower trim, coloured with the evergreen bough inkpad, and a piece of ribbon (same again) at the top.
Sorry it's not a very good picture. I couldn't get in close enough without the flash bleaching out every detail, I'll try and take a better one in daylight at the weekend.
Once again, there is a fab $50 random prize up for grabs. Thanks, Simon Says!
