Watching and waiting

 Hello everyone, 

Today a new challenge starts over at Country View Challenges. The theme this month is 'Tags' and is hosted by the lovely Jo. So the idea is to make a stand alone tag. Here's my first inspiration piece:

Here's how I made it:

I first cut the tag out of watercolour paper. I didn't measure but went by the size of the stamp I was going to use. I then dunked it in these Oxide inks until I was happy. 

I used a Tim Holtz stencil to add some interest and then, of course I toned it down with white paint and added splatters with pink, orange and white paint pens. 

Stamping randomly using the same inks and black. I used the black ink pad to go around the edges too. 

The focal is this adorable rabbit from Katzelkraft. I watercoloured him. I also stamped a carrot from the same set. 

Here he is.. so cute. 

And here it is all put together. I added some washi tape for him to stand on. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker from the Halloween set. 

We hope you will play along with us ! You could win a £20 voucher for the shop. Just make sure to read the rules first. You'll find them HERE

I'll see you soon with another tag !

I love the stunning brightly coloured background that you created with the stenciling and stamping and that adorable bunny rabbit waiting for the carrot to drop, I hope he's not waiting too long ...lol 😊.
