Doing What Makes Me Happy Stampotique Designers Challenge #85


This week at the Stampotique Designers challenge Kaz has chosen the theme, and she has chosen "whatever makes you happy"
Well it makes me very happy to get out my ink sprays and gesso and make a right old mess on my desk so that's exactly what I did for this challenge.


Gessoed the tag before spritzing it with dylusions inks. I then applied paperartys crackle and paint over it, before swooshing it all with picket fence distress stain. I stamped the image directly onto the tag and coloured in with paint. The hearts are embossed using Wow embossing powder and beadazzels added for bling.


I used the stamps

Daniel's hearts
Winter

well, la frickin dah
Baby its cold outside.

Fabulous Carol, I love your bedazzles, bet you'll be picking these up for days lol. My PA paints are the only ones I use now I love 'em all but the translucents are my favourite. The PA metal is already bonded onto card so you don't have to mess with sticking it yourself, and it takes the ink really well xx
