Today I've made a tag inspired by Ellen Vargo who is the guest designer on the Paperartsy blog this week. You can see Ellen's Paperartsy makes *HERE*
Here is the tag I've made using Ellen's techniques as a starting point:
So Ellen used a brayer to add the Fresco Finish paints onto her projects. I started my tag by adding Mermaid, Candy Floss and Orchid with my brayer. Then I added a little Beach Hut and South Pacific also using the brayer:
Next I added Grunge Paste through a SplodgeAway mask:
I rubbed Royal Amethyst Treasure Gold onto the Grunge Paste with my finger and stamped the circles from JOFY14 using Snowflake Fresco:
I stamped the flower and stem from Eclectica ELB01 onto some card using a mix of Mocha Mousse and Toffee. I coloured the centre dots of the flower with a gold gel pen, rounded out the petals and leaves with a ball tool, then added to the tag. I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using onyx black versafine, cut out and doodled a line around the outside before adding to the tag:
So there we are - all finished! A totally different colour scheme from the ones that Ellen has been using but one I'm really loving at the moment :-)

Getting in there by the skin of my teeth with my Paperartsy inspired project this week! This week the special guest designer was the lovely Julie Ann Lee from magpie heaven.
Julie Ann made a wonderful casket but I decided to take one element from her make for my project - her tiny tag book. To see her project in full click HERE to pop over to the Paperartsy blog where it was shown over the course of three nights. Here is my take on the mini tag book which was inside the casket:
To start I smooshed five small kraft coloured tags through watered down Fresco paints in Irish Cream, Toffee, Mocha Mousse and Cinnamon on both sides and dried.
Then I stamped on various images from Paperartsy's Hot Picks sets 1007, 1008 and 1009 using Orange Blossom and Potting Soil Archival inks:
Next I added a little colour and shading to the stamped images using my Inktense pencils. I then punched some holes in the tags and threaded them with thick black embroidery thread:
