Behind the Mask - DD Tag It On

Hello and welcome to another round of challenges from Dragons' Dream. Thanks for playing along in our Secret Garden last time.  This time for your tags, we are setting you recipes and our teamie Elizabeth, has given us this one:  Stencils, paint and script.  You have to do a tag, and you must use at least one real stamp and the ingredients - but other than that - get cooking!

 These are my ingredients - tag, Crafters workshop 'brick wall' stencil, Paperartsy Fresco paint 'mocha mousse' Wendy Vecchi's running man (though he's climbing the wall here!) idea-ology from Tim Holtz. The script stamp is by 'a bird in the hand' and is still my favourite script.









I sponged the paint through the stencil with cut and dry foam, dried it and them placed the stencil back to mask it so I could stamp the script (the failed side is on the reverse where more script ended up on the mask rather than the tag!)

I then outlined the bricks with my white gel pen.

I love this! The chap is one of my favourite WV images but I am never sure how to use him and this seems just perfect! Clever use of the mask so the script is just on the bricks - I'll remember that one x

What a good idea to put the stencil back for the script.

I now have that song in my head thank you very much - who was it? The Progidy? Someone like that!

(:(:(:(:(:(: goodness knows what Saturday will bring.

Do you get the idea I'm a bit depressed by it Helen ? So much so I had to start my comment again as the spelling was dreadful.

But you tag is great, so effective with the wall and the clip add a great finishing touch.
