Orange Tag & D


The theme over at TIO - Dragons Dream is orange and a letter of choice, so I set to work with my background. After using the DecoArt white tint base, I covered the tag with orange pan pastel, sprayed on some orange media mister, sponged chalky heritage paint through an alphabet stencil and two shades of orange DecoArt media paint through a stencil.  I mixed one of the shades with white modelling paste and stamped into it.

Stamped one of my favourite stamps on the tag and outlined her in white posca pen. I'd of loved to have used one of the new silhouette stamps from Dina's new range, but haven't got round to buying it yet!!  I added the D for diva myself, as Martin was taking my laptop apart and I couldn't get to my alphabet stamps.


I went round the textured circles with my black smudgy pencil and then smudged them to bring out the texture of the stamping into the modelling paste.

All paints and mediums are from the DecoArt range.

Fabulous! I love that girl too but have never got round to buying her :-(! This tag is gorgeous Sam, I love all the texture and strangely I really like the orange which is not my favourite colour. It's quite dramatic with the black and white on top.

Fantastic tag. Orange is much underrated and not often used except as part of an autumn palette. I love that Dina stamp too, Sam, and have my eye on her new stamps.

Great tag! Awesome color tone contrast. Very cool that you've included so many great details yet it is completely uncluttered. Every element shines.
