Today I'd like to share a tag I created to join in with the current Paperartsy challenge which is PAINT - to find out more hop on over to their blog HERE
My tag was loosely inspired by Clare Lloyd's project from last night except I swapped out the face for some of Darcy's new flowers.
I used a size 8 tag painted with Little Black Dress then added three of Lin's new colours over the top - Caribbean Sea, Bougainvillea and Tangerine Twist then wiped back some paint using a baby wipe through a TCW harliquin type stencil.
On a piece of smoothy card I used a mix of Banana, Tangerine Twist and Bouainvillea then stamped the flowers from Darcy EDY11 onto this and also onto the tag. I cut out the heads and painted the circles with Snowflake and then added a coat of Metallic Glaze to them.
On the tag I painted the stems first with Snowflake and then with Limelight.
I did some background stamping on the tag using one of the stamps from the same Darcy plate and Snowflake paint.
Then added the now sparkly flower heads to the tag using foam pads.
Quite difficult to catch the nice metallic sheen on the flower heads with the camera!
This is the first time I've tried wiping off paint through a stencil with baby wipes and am very happy with how it turned out :)
Thanks for looking,
