My good friend and former Stampotique teamie Kay Wallace is hosting this weeks challenge over at the Tag Along Blog. She wants us to use to rethink gesso. I made this:
I have really struggled with this photo as it is not as garish in real life. I just can't seem to get it right. Anyway, I put gesso on the tag through a stencil. I used a Prima Finnabair stencil called 'netting' for this. When the gesso had dried I sprayed Lindys Stamp Gang sprays on it. I love these. I used the two Flat Fabios, which basically means there is no sparkle in them. The colours I used were: Tilt-a-wheel teal and Merry-go-round green.
I dried those with the heat tool and after they dried I lightly stamped the background with a script stamp and inked the edges the tag with a blue Archival Ink. The little bird, from the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy set, was stamped on white card stock and coloured with Copic Markers, cut out and adhered to the tag. I had a bit of plaster bandage lying around which was sprayed with the same colours and I used this as a base for my sentiment which came from a PaperArtsy Set ESN04. A piece of blue ribbon finished it off.
Thanks for stopping by !
