I have made a tag today which I shall be entering into the Tag Along Challenge of this week. The theme is Angels and was set by my lovely friend Kay.
I am suffering with lack of Mojo at this moment. I was going to do a lot this week but haven't managed to come up with much at all... Eek. Hopefully Mr. Mojo will return soon. I tried to kickstart myself with this tag and hope it has worked...
I started with a #8 tag which I painted with white gesso. After this dried I sprinkled some yellow and orange Brusho's over it and then used a clear gesso instead of water to get a result that is more predictable. The unpredictability of the Brusho's is exactly what I don't like. So when I read on the internet somewhere that you can mix them with gel medium and gesso etc. I thought I'd try it before I completely give up on them. I like this a lot better.
Anyway after that dried I put my Gothic TH stencil on and sprayed orange Delusion spray through it. This gave this diffused effect which I quite liked. After it dried I put the stencil back on and dabbed embossing ink through it on the top right and bottom left. I heat embossed it with copper embossing powder by WOW. I also embossed the edges of the tag in the same way.
Next I stamped Stampotique's 'Angel Boy' and one of the words of the 'Tall word collage' on white card stock, clear embossed them and coloured the angel with a combination of Copics and watercolour pencils. I re-embossed the wings after colouring with clear embossing powder.
Both were cut out and adhered to the tag and lastly I added a piece of ribbon.
Thank you for stopping by !
