A Bright & Cheery Tag


I wanted to make this tag bright and cheery as it's for a twitter pal who's just come out of hospital after having an op.

Stampotique have a theme of 'tag, you're it' this week and Dragons Dream TIO have a recipe of paint, ribbon and a stencil, oh and don't forget, at least one real stamp.

Mdf tag was initially primed with snowflake fresco paint and then coloured with limelight and zesty zing.  The diamond stencil was used with beach hut.

Image stamped with black stazon, coloured with pens, masked off and stamped the background using my Traci Bautista stamp in lots of different colours of distress inks, picked raspberry, salty ocean, mowed lawn, rusty hinge, peacock feathers and probably some others.

I used my white posca pen to doodle on the background and the black for the edges and to outline the main image.

The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.
