Dragons Dream TIO - Y - Transport

Welcome back to the Dragons Dream TIO challenge - this fortnight, my teamie Jax has chosen the letter Y and the theme of transport for our tags.

I started by painting my tag with black gesso, and then applied a layer of Crackle Glaze (Paperartsy)
The top layer of paint is one of the new limited edition Lin Brown colours, Hint of Mint. - got some good cracks.

The Y is of course yacht - a smart mode of transport if ever there was one!
The yachts are a wooden stamp by Stamp It (an Australian company) and I've coloured them with my fibralo pens which I blended with a barely damp paintbrush
Stamped the letters on a scrap of white card and mounted on black. The letters are a teeny tiny set from Hampton Art.
Finished the tag with some blue and white fibres.
Hope to see some fabulous transport tags, don't forget to use at least one real stamp.

You did do good crackle Helen. Like the way that it all looks faded as though it has just floated from somewhere. Looks all nostalgic, colours look great! Xx

Scrumptious crackle - what a great weathered wood background, perfect for the ocean scene.
