Dragons Dream TIO #151

Published October 14, 2013 by isisimaginings

Hello, I hope everyone’s had a great Monday. I’m typing this with VERY cold fingers….

I missed the previous Dragons Dream challenge because I could not come up with a single idea, so I was determined not to miss this one, especially as it was Trace’s last time for a while to choose the theme.

Her theme was:

A word of your choice, brown, die cuts & lots of layers. All on a tag, with at least one stamp.

Here’s my tag:

Dragons Dream Oct 12 13

I used a piece of cardboard from a Tando Creative piece. Layers as follows:

Paint with Chocolate Pudding Fresco.

Glue on torn pieces of book text.

Cover with a piece of tissue paper, scrunching it up to create texture.

When dry, apply grunge paste through a stencil & allow to dry.


Then I started applying paint; Brown Shed, Smoked Paprika, Chocolate Pudding, French Roast, tiny amounts of Mocha Mousse & Pumpkin Soup. Then a few washes of Chocolate Pudding, stamping with PaperArtsy’s mini splatters stamp & black Archival ink & to finish, Spanish Topaz treasure gold.


I cut the window from a scrap of grunge paste, dry embossed it, painted it with frescos & added a little Spanish Topaz. The branches are also grunge paper, die cut from the TH Tree Branch die, coloured with distress inks & the little birds are a Memory Box die.


I painted Dylusions’ Pondering Petunia with frescos (her head is from the Curious Corrin stamp set) adding Glossy Accents to her eyes & boots & Antique Linen distress stickles to her wings & die cut the PA bird from metal card, painting it with frescos too.

I had a different quote in mind initially, but then thought of this one as I was working. The letters are Hampton Art stamps, I used Potting Soil Archival & glued the words onto a die cut label that I stamped with a crackle stamp with Frayed Burlap DI & heat set with clear embossing powder.

That’s it, the cardboard is not the strongest, so I think this tag will end up on a page in my art journal.

Once again I must say thank you so very much to everyone for visiting & for the very kind comments. It means a great deal to me.

See you next time.
