Stampotique - Tag Time


The current challenge on the Stampotique blog is tags. I had used a king sized tag for this and the background has been done using lots of messy things, distress stains, Claudine Hellmuth Paints, multi-medium a few beadazzles for good measure and all done a blue and green shade to mimic the sea to make the wacky little mermaid feel right at home. Finished with a few twists of ribbon and a seahorse charm.

This tag did change theme half way through as it was originally going to be halloween and if you look closely you can see pale skulls in the background, but it had a mind of its own as things often do and ended up as this instead.

In the UK I buy my stampotique stamps and most of my craft supplies from HappyDaze and all the items I have used on this tag are available from the online shop
