These are from day 5 I used distress stains for the backgrounds - I haven't made a note of the colours but I think I used Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and either Black Soot or Vintage Photo on the tags and then I have stamped with Jet Black Archival on the first tag with Picket Fence stain over the top, the trees are Picket Fence too and the lampost is Black Archival. On the second tag I stamped the house in Broken China distress ink with black archival over the top, the trees and lampost are the same as before. The third tag has Cavallini & co butterflies stamped in Picket Fence distress stain on the background and Indigo Blu flower and butterfly stamped over the top in black archival. All tags have been finished with random bits of ribbon, lace and charms. Not sure if that key is a bit big for the first tag but isn't it fabulous! was a wonderful find in Primark with 9 keys on a necklace for about £3!! bargain.
These are a replay of this mornings tag - aren't they so much better! The first two tags have Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Broken China and Barn door distress inks on the background along with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls, Iced Jade and Emerald Sparkle Cosmic Shimmers. Interestingly they are both from the same batch of inks with the first one created with the first pass through of inks and the second one used with the remaining inks on the sheet - don't they look different! I stamped the birdcages and birds with black archival - the first one I managed to mess up as I stamped the bird first and then the birdcage and it looked so obvious that the cage was over the bird but I rescued it by restamping over the bird with Picket Fence distress stain - I am so glad that I have learnt this technique as it made a fabulous finish to a piece of artwork that last week would have probably ended up in the bin! Both tags have been finished with Vintage Photo around the edge and then some of T!ms new sizzix flowers, vintage lace, a charm and some ribbons.
The third tag is a replay of the inked tag (Tea Dye) dried and then the birdcage stamped out in Walnut Stain, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany with Heirloom Gold perfect pearls I then sprayed this with water (a lot less this time!) and dried it and then stamped out the bird with Vintage Photo, Crushed Olive and Wild Honey and again Heirloom Gold perfects pearls. Finished this tag with Vintage Photo around the edge, Vintage Lace, new sizzix flowers, ribbons and a charm.
All in all a very pleasant afternoon!
