Friendship Tags


I have had a lovely messy time with my Distress Inks since I cam home from work. My hands have a sort of rainbow effect on them :0)
All three tags are the same, the theme for this month's swap was "Friendship". I started by Stamping half of a Paper Bag Studios stamp onto each tag. Post it notes come in very handy for this.I made a mask of the stamped image and then blended Distress Inks in Peeled Paint and Dusty Concord over the tag.I watercoloured the girls using Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany and Scattered Straw. Then I stamped the other half of the stamp, containing the sentiment,onto mountboard and blended the same inks around a mask of it.I masked the image of the girls again and stamped a swirly Tim Holtz background over the entire tag in Dusty Concord. The mountboard was then edged with gold Krylon pen and glued in place above the image at a slight angle.
The other side of the tag was coloured by blending the two inks again and then I stamped the Scratches stamp by Tim Holtz in Peeled Paint across the tag. The Friends stamp is by HOTP and was stamped in black archival ink. Finally some fibres and I was done. I am really pleased with how these have turned out and hope whoever gets them in the swap likes them too. Thanks for visiting
