DragonsDream - Tag It On - Challenge

Welcome to another TIO challenge from the DragonsDream Team - May choosing the recipe this fortnight, would like us to use the theme/recipe of orange, nature and time on your tag - and don't forget you must use one real stamp on the tag.

I cut a tag from cardboard waste from a package that was delivered and painted it with butternut and smoked paprika Paperartsy Fresco paints, wiping back some of the top layer to distress the look a little.  Stamped the clocks (a Paperartsy stamp) randomly over the tag in sepia archival ink.


Stamped and cut out 4 flowers on Clearly for Art by Wendy Vecchi, stamped a dotty background over the two larger flowers and painted the back with butternut Fresco paint.

Glued the large and small flowers together after heating them to curl the petals and found two teeny tiny clock faces in my stash for the centres.


The 'nature reveals' stamp is also by Wendy Vecchi.

Hi Helen,

I've just come from May and must say I love the war oranges and the UTEE flowers really stand out beautifully against it.

Fabulous tag, Helen. I love the effect of painting on the back of the film - your flowers are wonderful. And the distressed orange background sets them off to perfection. (And I don't even really like orange, generally!)
