PA Inspired Huge Tag


Night 6 over at PA is the turn of the Ellen Vargo range of stamps. You can see the 3 lovely projects made with them here. I decided to base my huge tag on the 3rd project by Ruth.


I coloured the background with portfolio pastels and blended them in. Stamped the scratchy EV pod and circle shapes randomly in snowflake fresco paint. Added PA Mini script with a swipe of black stazon.


I mixed some pearl with the snowflake to give a bit of a metallic sheen and used the square dots (does that make sense??) EV stamp with this as above, you can just see the glimmer.


I chose one of the Artistcellar stencils from the pods collection that I won a while ago. I stencilled in white snowflake.


Close up of the snowflake stencilling and PA mini script stamp.




And finally I used the 12 x 12 Prima bubbles stencil to do the bumping with the snowflake and a colour.


As I can't do shading, I wanted to add white pencil, but when I tried it just scraped the coloured paint off.


So I took my black smudgy pencil instead which actually says 'soft' on it, and added a bit of what I call shading!!


This was great fun and incorporated loads of techniques - thanks Ruth

I do love the effect of 'bumping' and it looks great with these colours. Fab tag, Sam xxx

FABULOUS!! Love the colours and the white stencilling really does bring it all together. It's lovely to get feedback but to have produced something that inspires someone is a huge compliment so thank you, it's a great interpretation! Ruth x
