The Writing’s On The Wall by Fliss Goodwin



Hello there, I have a tag for you this week which although you wouldn’t know it is actually giant size as it uses the largest of the Ranger tags and as you see I’ve gone for a bold and graphic design in bright colours this time after last week’s neutrals.


Here’s What You Need:
Stamps Used:

Distress Inks – Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Barn Door, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon
Embossing Folder – I used a brick one
Green ProMarker – I used Grass


Here’s How To:

·       Cut a piece of watercolour paper to a size to fit the tag leaving a fairly wide border. Colour with the Wild Honey Distress ink and then use the texture paste with the grass section of the garden stencil at the base of the paper. Allow the paste to dry, then colour with the green Distress ink.

·       Use the brick stencil to apply Rusty Hinge and Barn Door inks on the remaining area of the watercolour paper, repeating as necessary to cover. I then used a brick embossing folder to add texture to the decorated paper and the kraft tag.

·       Stamp 3 flowers and 2 stalks with the black ink on stamping card and colour with blue, pink and orange inks on the flowers and green on the leaf stalks. Cut them all out when dry. Stamp the text on to card with black ink and cut the words out separately.

·       Assemble the tag by adding the paper and gluing on the flowers to climb up the wall. Add the text on either side of the flowers and knot some ribbon at the top to finish.
Don’t to check out the challenge blog today as we have a fabulous new challenge for you.
