Handle with care..

Hello fellow Crafters,

Finally I had time to craft again and I decided to make a tag for Coby's Challenge over at the Craftorij. I used a few of the new release stamps for this.

Usually when I make anything I do the background first and then the image, which I stamp separately, cut out and adhere to my project. Today I decided to do a one layer tag. 
I cut a tag out of white card stock and started with stamping the girl named "Dwindled" on it with Memento Ink. I then used water soluble crayons and a water brush to colour carefully around her. Obviously the water would smudge the stamped image if not carefully applied. I then used my alcohol markers to colour the girl. Next I did some background stamping using black Archival Ink an a Big Brush Marker, applied directly to my stamps. For this I used 'Ticket for Paris' and one of the circles of the 'Circles Cube'. 
Next I used some model paste with a Tim Holtz stencil. After this dried I rubbed it with silver paint and black ink to get a grungy effect. I also rubbed my Archival Ink pad around the edges. Lastly I stamped the sentiment 'Handle with care' and put a ribbon through the hole.

I used the following Stampotique stamps:

  6. If I hadn't read that this is a one layer tag, I wouldn't have guessed. This looks layered in so many ways - very clever!
