It has been ages that I played in the Tag Along challenge. So today I thought I'd give it a go. It was a nice opportunity to try out my new Stampingback stamps... Yay !
The theme this time is "Crackle" and here is what I made:
I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paint in Cobalt Turquoise Hue to paint the tag. I then covered it with white Crackle paste, also from Deco Art. Next I rubbed the whole thing with Patina Green Antiquing Cream (Deco Art). After this dried I took some of it off again. This gives a nice effect.. I rubbed a little more of the paint along the edges to get a darker edge.
I stamped the background with a scriptstamp (brand unknown) and the compass rose from Set 154 ABC+ from Stampingback.
I also used a small background stamp with black ink in three places and didn't like it so I covered the stamped images up with some book pages which I then rubbed with the same antiquing cream to make them blend in more. I actually like this so mistakes are not always disastrous...
Next I stamped the ballerina, coloured her and cut her out. I also stamped the sentiment en cut it in strips. Everything was then glued to the tag. A ribbon finished it off.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
