Happy Monday, blog visitors, I hope you had a great weekend. I would like to show you my R tag for the year long Chocolate Baroque alphabet tag swap.
Unusually, I knew before I started what I wanted to do. The tag below is the result & I did not like it at all. Too much embossing, the blocks of colour were wrong & the clouds had virtually disappeared.
Then the Muse blessed me with inspiration. I put ‘Stream’ Adirondack ink on the stencil, put a tag on top & rolled a brayer over it to transfer the ink from the stencil to the tag.
The next step was to blend Distress inks over the clouds. I used:
- Festive Berries
- Squeezed Lemonade
- Mowed Lawn
- Salty Ocean
- Seedless Preserves
To make raindrops I debossed the tag with a Dots Trio (Cuttlebug?) embossing folder & filled the spaces with Glossy Accents & a slight sprinkling of glitter.
The balloon & the boot are from Chocolate Baroque’s Steampunk Travel A5 set. I coloured the balloon with watercolour pens, then added Crackle Accents. When it dried some of the cracks were too big, so I filled the gaps with Glossy Accents.
I stamped the boot onto white card with Versamark, added silver EP & heat set, then I cut it out. The boot was coloured with Festive Berries DI & the wings with Squeezed Lemonade – I stamped them again, cut them out & attached them to the boot with red brads.
I found the quote online & stamped it with a Hampton Art mini alphabet set on a scrap of card I had sprayed with Dylusions.
Thank you for looking. Until next time,
Love & light
