Brushos Tag by Carol Fox


I have used the latest stamps from Dina Wakley today along with Brushos on a canvas tag today, this is what I did. 

I sprinkled the dry Brushos onto my canvas tag, trying to keep the colours separate, I then spritzed them with water to really saturate the tag, I then stood it up so the colours ran down the tag mixing as they went. I then sprinkled some dry ultra marine powder onto the tag where I wanted the colour to be and spritzed this to make the colour bleed on the canvas tag. I then heat dried the whole thing so it was completely dry.

I stamped my image and quote onto vellum and cut them out. I have never liked the way you can see the glue when you attach vellum so I decided to stitch them onto the tag, I used my sewing machine but hand stitching would work just as well and I went for a messy random look as opposed to super tidy sewing.

Once I had sewn on my image I added some of the round barbed wire image from the Stampendous Stamp Set “Wired”. I stamped this using black paint to keep the colour nice and dense on the canvas as sometimes ink can be too faint when stamped onto canvas, I also edged my tag with the same black paint.

I added three lines of messy stitching up the side of the tag next to the image and finished by stitching the quote to the tag as shown.
