Prompt Tags

I used

Little Friends
Kate's Doodles Cube

The latest challenge for Stampotique has been chosen by Kathi with the theme of "crack me up"
she has asked us to use crackle on our make and to give it a humorous theme.

I am in the process of making a tag book, this is intended to give me a bit of an prompt book for stamps and techniques that I love to use.

I have added a tag using the challenge this week as a prompt to use crackle on my projects. I mixed my DecoArt media Crackle paint with some fluid media acrylic to colour it before applying trough a stencil as the last step on my tag.

These are some tags that came on some clothes, they are lovely heavy grey card so I gave them a couple of coats of Gesso as a base, it is the direct stamping onto the gesso that gave my main image the worn look that it has in the photo, I was not sure about this at first as on the plain white tag it looked just badly stamped, but once I added in my colours and other stamping I liked the worn look of the image. Adding a smudge of colour to the dresses with my colouring pencils just seemed to finish it off.

Full details of the Challenge this week, how to enter and the prize can been seen HERE.

Enjoy the challenge this week.

I hope you have a lovely day, Carol xx
