Trio of Banksy tags

Hello fellow Stampers,

For my DT post at VivaLasVegaStamps! I have three tags to share with you. I love the VLVS! Banksy stamps and couldn't resist playing with them again. I have also used quite a few other rubber stamps, all VivaLasVegaStamps! You will find a complete list at the bottom of this post.

This is the finished result

Paint tags with gesso. Also gesso a piece of card stock for sentiments if wanted/needed)

When the gesso has dried, stamp the images with Archival ink and heat emboss. I used black embossing powder to get a real black image. 

Randomly glue (I used gel medium)  book text around the images and put a thin coat of gesso over it. Make sure you can still see the text. 

Use a stencil, model paste and a paletknife of old credit card and add more texture to your tag. 

After this has dried (you can use a heat tool) the fun can start. Use different spray inks to colour the tags. I didn't spray; I used a brush as, although the images repel the ink, when drying the ink with a heat tool you might melt some of the liquid into the embossed images leaving light spots. If this happens you can always touch it up with a black marker. 

The last thing you do is stamp the background, use a fine tipped marker to doodle here and there, splatter some white ink (avoiding the images),  adhere your sentiments (if using) and add some ribbon. I also used some plaster bandage for added interest. 

I used the following stamps : 

Thank you so much for stopping by !

I hope you like my tags and have inspired you to pick up some rubber stamps !
