Hello, happy Wednesday. I’m working on assorted – and unfinished – projects at the moment, but I wanted to show you a tag I made while waiting for stuff to dry on Monday.
It started out as a tag I used to mope up left over paint. When I’d finished the coasters I had some black paint on my craft sheet, so I applied it through a stencil & when it was dry painted Fresco Bora Bora on top.
This is one of the few times where I didn’t spend an age thinking about what I wanted to do. I stamped the PA Mini 22 in a few places, then mixed a little PA Grunge Paste & copper acrylic paint together & applied that through another stencil. While that was drying I added the white highlighting.
While I was painting the PA Mini 83 head with distress inks, I got the idea of a head in a jar, so I stamped the Artistic Stamper Inspiration Jars stamp with Stazon onto acetate & the lid onto PA metal card, put them together & added the wire.
The words were taken from the Artistic Stamper Journaling Mini Words stamp, I cut them out & used Old Paper & Black Soot distress inks to age them. A couple of TH mini gears, a little Spanish Topaz TG around the edges & on the gears & the tag was finished.
I like how it turned out, it makes me smile. And I think I shall enter it into the Artistic Stamper May Challenge. The theme is ‘Words’ & I did have another idea, but I couldn’t make it work. As I’ve used AS stamps on this tag, maybe they’ll accept it.
The plan is to be back tomorrow or Friday with another PaperArtsy inspired piece, so until then, thanks for visiting & leaving comments.
Love & light.
