MAKE IT COUNT
Here is a quick tag I made for the That's Crafty challenge, Outnumbered. It was a very simple tag to make which given my workload lately was about all my brain could cope with!! Then again friends would probably say that is my usual state of mind...simple! I would have to add stylish though.....moving on....
So this tag mainly involved stencilling, a bit of stamping and some heat embossing. I used Paper Artsy fresco paints and a couple of Amsterdam acrylics.
I had actually started the tag a few weeks ago when I added some stencilling to use up some paint. I had used a Tim Holtz stencil...stripes I think it is. I loved the vibrancy of the orange so I decided I would use bright colours and then grunge it up a bit....I so loves my grunge!!
I used a Seth Apter stencil by Stencil Girls to add the numbers, using green and then yellow acrylic. (the Amsterdam) I then added some stamping using a Paper Artsy numbers collage with London Bus fresco paint, applied with a brayer. I did some more stamping with Archival ink in cornflower blue, using a Paper Artsy Lin Brown stamp.
On a separate piece of white card I randomly painted on a selection of colours using my fingers. When dry I stamped a Dina Wakely stamp in Versamark and heat embossed in black. I edged the tag in a variety of Gelatos and wrote out my quote on some card, cut it out and edged it with a black Posca pen and attached it to my tag along with my cut out image.
I will add a more detailed list of the products I used later, but as usual I got a bit behind...I blame work!
Right, time to say goodnight and happy messiness to you all xxxx
